Prepare to be dripped in spacey melodies by Xav Clarke. His brand new album ‘Magic Arrow’ is a sonic journey through psychedlic Pop and Indie sensibilities.
The Margate native is most recently known for composing the soundtrack to Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Netflix show ‘Wolfboy and the Everything Factory’ and he’s proving that his talents stretch even further.
Lead single ‘No One Understands This Thing Called Life’ boasts the grooviest of basses underneath iridescent treble that brings a sweet optimism. The accompanying video is equally as colourful and can be viewed below.
Speaking of the debut album, Xav shares:
“Making ‘Magic Arrow’ spanned so many major life events, it’s been the hardest record to finish and release, but that’s probably because thematically it’s the closest to my heart. Listening back to it is like a diary for me as the events took place over several years, and since the theme of the album is really riding the uncontrollable arrow of time – it seems fitting that making this record was totally unpredictable and chaotic. It was recorded across several countries with a whole host of amazing collaborators, sometimes on sofas with voice notes, sometimes in studios. Some of it is super happy and some of it is very reflective, sad, and dreamy – it’s an album of many moods, but ultimately with a deep love and enthusiasm for life, which is probably the thread that connects all the sounds and songs together.”
‘Magic Arrow’ is an exciting new addition to our playlists and is guaranteed to bring the glittery melodies that will see you through the summer.
