New Music of the Day – CXX : Heaven Forbid – The Lion and The Wolf

14107804_1290249177686446_812336406163992763_oHeaven Forbid is taken from the forthcoming album The Cardiac Hotel  out on Xtra Mile on 7th October. For this second album they continue their atmospheric minimalism and sonorous soundscaping.

It feels fragile while wrapping itself in strength of heart, a certain courage needed to bare the soul or strip down to honesty. The music on The Cardiac Hotel is still warm though, never feeling disconnected from the listener, probably because of the lack of digital interference. And that’s important because The Lion and the Wolf is all about intimacy and understanding.You’ll never be alone with The Lion and the Wolf, and you’ll never have to feel that way now you’re part of the pride and pack.

The concept behind the video sees Daniel Trevenna play a ‘Lucifer’ antagonist character who is referred to as ‘The Suit’. The story being, he is attempting to take the human race down to hell / somewhere unpleasant, one by one, by placing a chess piece in front of the victims who are staying at ‘The Cardiac Hotel’.

“I hadn’t really thought about it until now, but perhaps it’s a reflection of how tempted I have been in the past to put music aside and go get a normal ‘suit’ job said Thomas George
