Soulive guitarist Eric Krasno has released an Curtis Peel animated music video for "On The Rise," the second single from Kraz's upcoming solo album, Blood From A Stone. Watch it above, courtesy of Krasno's YouTube.
Curtis Peel spoke with The Creators Project about the video's interesting theme:
For me, the narrative was this sort of gradual reveal that culminates at the end of the final chorus... At first you think you're just watching this cyclops monk enjoying a meditative ritual on a hilltop of some distant planet, but as he starts to trip out, you realize that he is envisioning a distant civilization that has long since been buried beneath the ocean.
The waters subside, revealing ruins/infrastructure akin to a major metropolis like New York City... Our monk feels compassion for the humans that didn't survive whatever catastrophe had its way with them and decides to plant the seeds for their rebirth, but the humans quickly grow out of control and the monk flees the planet.
Last month Eric released a music video for the album's first single, "Waiting On Your Love."
Blood From A Stone is scheduled to be released on July 8, 2016. Pick it up on Amazon.
