Orchestral pop band Tonic Fold have unleashed a heart-stopping video and free download of their new single 'Manaway' featuring vocals from Jess Greenfield. It is the lead single from their upcoming album 'The Violent Language of Portraits' due for release on February 4th 2014.
The video shows Jess Greenfield singing on stage, whilst elsewhere a troubled looking man goes about his daily business. We see him waking up on the sofa before going to retrieve a large giftbox, after which he drives to what appears to be a garage where he dons some overalls and starts to put together a bomb using a variety of chemicals. He then carries the bomb, concealed in the box, to where Jess is singing and detonates. It feels like an unexpected turn of events; although there's a kind of desperate sadness in Jess' beautifully classic vocals, the orchestral backing including guitars and drums adds an energy to it that is far from gut-wrenching. The contrast adds an artistic shock factor.
Tonic Fold is the experimental orchestra project of composer Shane Cullinan, who uses various guest vocals on his upcoming album 'The Violent Language of Portraits' including David McAlmont, Andrew Derbyshire, Rachel Tucker and actress Kathy Burke.
