Book of Colors has just released its new music video for “Hologram of Thought,” the latest single from their long-awaited debut album, available February 5th, 2016 on Deer Bear Wolf Records. Do yourself a favor and watch it right now. It’s only three-and-a-half minutes long and is sure to warm even your cold, cold heart.
The video opens with a caption: “We filmed our family and friends as they listened to this song for the first time.” What follows is an emotional reflection on the passage of time, the difficulties we perpetuate in our own lives, and ultimately, our ability to transcend the mental landscapes we create in order to experience the beauty of the present moment.
Book of Colors’ mastermind André Paraguassu sings this lushly orchestrated lullaby as a duet with beloved Atlanta songstress Adron. The entire visual tale is told through a montage of extreme close-ups, and features a diverse cast of more than eighty people whose ages range all the way from the tiniest of newborns to people well into their nineties.
The purposeful simplicity of director Brandon Ross’s vision brings the music and lyrics into direct focus, and the clarity and intimacy of Alison Daye Himes’ cinematography serves as a perfect compliment to the unapologetic honesty that Paraguassu offers up so tenderly in this beautiful new track from Book of Colors.
"This video offers a heartwarming perspective on the passage of time, the difficulties we perpetuate in our own lives, and ultimately, our ability to transcend the mental landscapes we create in order to experience the beauty of the present moment. The video perfectly encapsulates “Hologram of Thought” as a whole, bringing the music and lyrics into focus so that the listener can experience the same emotions that the individuals in the video are feeling. And you can’t help but feel as if this is how the song was meant to be heard, with your full attention given to it — feeling and reflecting." -Open Ears Music
