Following the release of the free-to-download 'My Way Home' off his untitled upcoming album, Blair Jollands has released the music video for his new song, 'Carve it Up'. The song was released in late June, 2014.
'Carve it Up' releases a paradoxically haunting and heart-warming feeling upon the listener, creating a great track which perfectly suits the simple, yet creative music video. The video features scenes of Jollands walking, guitar in hand, through park lanes and forests. The scenery is so blatantly the English countryside, that it contributes heavily to the freshness of this New Zealand born, London based singer/songwriter.
Jollands told us about the upcoming album in an interview earlier this year: "It's basically my humble take of current events," he said. "A lot of the songs look at the decay of obsolete systems - political and social. It's topical but interlaced with modern everyday life - love, loss, joy and tragedy." When asked about the radically different styles of various pieces of his music, he said: "I cross genres like Eddie Izzard cross-dresses. I'm hard to pigeonhole!" Jollands has spent part of his music career working on the soundtracks for films like 'Pride', 'Wild Bill', 'Bleak House', the British television series 'A Touch of Cloth' and the award winning film 'Shackleton'.
