On the lyrics and the concept for the film clip, Jamart creative mastermind Ersh On comments: “I felt the need to tell this story with song and video. The video and words are from the child’s perspective, witnessing his loving, beautiful mum and their whole world getting trashed as he grows up. The first part is what happened, the second part is what could have happened had I not gone through certain phases in life.
There are countless people going through this and others who have grown up with this, now living with PTSD. I feel this music video may help them feel not alone and take some action to either escape or heal from it.”
Written and recorded through 2020 and 2021 at Vision Rehearsal Studios, the self-titled debut album encapsulates a whirlwind of adventurous creativity dubbed “mystic soul metal” where the music ebbs and flows around shades of melodic and heavy, progressive songs blended with dynamically charged landscapes and sounds. The album was mixed and mastered by John Prosser with artwork handled by Arif Rot from WormRot.
On the release of his new project, creative mastermind Ersh On stated: “So relieved to give a piece of me to everyone through this album.”
