‘Bread And Wine’
13th April 2021
Taken from the forthcoming album ‘The Watchful Eye of The Stars’ out 30th April 2021
“When asked to write a few words about the song, the author said it may or may not be about a person with a chequered past lying low in a small coastal town before deciding where to go next. It’s kind of a film script in four verses.” – Adrian Crowley
Today Adrian Crowley releases “Bread and Wine” with a hand-drawn storybook music video by Crowley featuring a cast of anthropomorphic characters. A folk sea ballad with elegant strings, gentle guitar and harmony vocals from Katell Keineg. Bread and Wine is an ode to outcasts (“The stray dogs here follow me around / they seem to know their kind”). “Bread and Wine” is the second single from Crowley’s forthcoming John Parish produced LP The Watchful Eye of The Stars, out April 30th, 2021.
On the video, Crowley says: “The stars of the video for Bread and Wine were made with a scalpel, pen and a drawing book. It was a curious thing to see the scenarios unfold there on my kitchen table, late one windy night. It’s quite spooky, in a way, how just a few dots and lines on a page can conjure someone up. All those characters spying at the window; like ghosts from someone’s past. They all seem to have an eerie and playful presence.”
Preorder the album now at our Chemikal Underground and Bandcamp shops, and to ease that longing while you wait for delivery, listen now to the single track from the album, ‘Bread And Wine’, available on all streaming services.
