London’s Blurred Vision announced the digital release of their new single, “Magdalena.” It will be available on all major streaming and download platforms on May 10th. You can check out the lyric video of the song below. The official music video will be released June 3rd. “Magdalena” is the first single release from the band’s forthcoming second album.
Inspired by the call of the collared dove, “Magdalena” is about an eponymous super heroine who breaks the chains of inhibition and mediocrity to free her subjects from the shackles of their mundane world.
Band founder/songwriter Sepp Osley said, “For anyone, if lucky, there is that individual, that free spirit, who comes into your life and completely liberates you from the things that hold you back. Conceptually it really appealed to me as a super power figure. Musically it all started with the call of the collard dove – one of those fortuitous moments where nature gives you that wild ear worm you really want to sing.”
Blurred Vision have been working directly with graduate students from London’s MET Film School to create concepts for both the lyric and the official music videos. Students have submitted original material covering all aspects of animation, editing and post production with a view to bring a young, fresh approach to the interpretation of the song.
The new lineup sees the addition of some of London’s hottest young musicians. Joining Sepp Osley are Bentley Levy on bass, Jake Bradford Sharp on drums, and Jake Libretto on guitars.
“Magdalena” is available for purchase and streaming from the band’s official website.
