VIDEO NEWS: Birthmarks Release New Single ‘One Pulse’
Birthmarks have released a video for their new single One Pulse, taken from their forthcoming debut album …And Then The Rain Stopped.
“One Pulse is a song mourning the loss of an emotional and physical connection with someone,” explains vocalist/guitarist Daniel Cross. “It’s about all of the things you didn’t realise that you’d miss and the acceptance that you are now a ghost in the person’s past. I was focused on the contrast between the beginning and the end of the relationship and how the person can seem otherworldly to you and how you crave them… but now the dopamine has faded, the sex is a cruel memory and the rose-tinted glasses smashed. It’s about learning to not let happiness haunt you.”
“We were fortunate enough that Erlendur Sveinsson allowed us to use his short film Kanarí to be repurposed for this song,” he adds. “My personal take on the film is that it is a metaphor for love dying whilst the warning signs are ignored and how neglect can become a regret, though I think so much of it is open to interpretation.”
…And Then The Rain Stopped is due for release on 27th March, available to pre-order HERE.
