Watch new video by Hieroglyph ‘Starlight – The High Priestess’

By on 9 November 2016

This new video by Hieroglyph for their track ‘Starlight – The High Priestess’ is the first single to be taken from the band’s self-released album ‘Ouroboros’ which is out 18 November. You can buy ‘Ouroboros’ here.

Speaking about the track, vocalist Valentina Reptile said:

“We also have our good friend Will from Clockwork contributing some guest vocals on our single ‘Starlight’. For guest vocals process we just told both him and Meyrick (De La Fuente, co-producer) about the concept of the album and single and they were free to elaborate on those. I really love what they have done and they really made an effort to follow the lyrics line which was written already.”

“Starlight is the second card of the Major Arcana: The High Priestess, so the inspiration from the lyrics come from the same tarot card. The High Priestess is a very positive card which represents guardian of the unconscious. She sits in front of the thin veil of unawareness which is all that separates us from our inner landscape. She contains within herself the secrets of these realms and offers us the silent invitation to discover the world within. The High Priestess poses a challenge to you to go deeper – to look beyond the obvious, surface situation to what is hidden and obscure. She also asks you to recall the vastness of your potential and to remember the unlimited possibilities you hold within yourself.

“The whole album is a concept around the Major Arcana. We didn’t want to be pretentious but always wanted to make a concept album, because I think it makes more sense to link songs together and give them an overall meaning but at the same time we made sure that the songs can stand alone on their own. The main objective is to make good music that people would enjoy, but also to make music we love and know we can put our all into it.”
