"To See The World" by The Eyes of IsabelReview
Out right now is the latest Eyes of Isabel single, "To See The World".
As ever accompanied by an evocative video assembled by Andy McGeechan which adds its own layers of meaning to the song, it was recorded by John Rivers at Woodbine Street Studio
In fact the video uses footage shot by songwriter Tony Ally during the 1990s (the international nature of the clips would have presumably made production costs colossal had they been made primarily for this single).
Appropriately for what is a sort of musical travelogue, the arrangement features a range of instruments & styles from around the world from European accordion to eastern sounding guitar riffing before settling on a synth driven plea for people to open their imaginations, explore the world beyond Little England & absorb other ideas & cultures: with greater levels of understanding & tolerance resulting. Some specific examples of possible destinations are provided within the lyrics (especially I imagine to mesh with the images) but overall the advice is broad: "Seek Out New Destinations…. Let's See The World" & I must say that I concur.
