♫♪  Ben Seretan - “The Confused Sound of Blood in a Shining Person”

Aye, y’all. The fall is coming WAY too fucking fast upon us. Suddenly, after one weekend at the beach, the next you’ve a jacket on and hot-apple cider in-hand as there’s a fire pit lit in the backyard, and dead leaves are falling in only to spruce up the flames. Thus, it’s about time for listeners to get a bit more sentimental in sound and lyric with Ben Seretan’s second single “The Confused Sound of Blood in a Shining Person” off his new Self Titled album. Out October 28, this double LP is equipped with lite-shredders like “Light Leaks” and the heavy-feels of “The Confused Sound of Blood in a Shining Person.” And ain’t nothing going to give you a bit more warmth than what you already got.

But the video itself is a funny commentary on standard ego’d-out music videos of people “feeling” their own brand of art. Which is chill, but Ben Seretan (obviously) makes it chiller because what else is there to say that what the music provides in itself? Is it good time to get WAY INTO what you’ve already spent hours on creating (like a song) or is it more posi to take advantage of the time a music video provides and comment on how lame this shit usually is by standing there looking back upon the looker? Mm — Ben Seretan is stark in lyric, sincere in voice, practically visual, and brilliantly ready at the pick-and-strum. It’s a pleasure to be blessed with a track like this so early in the season. STOKED at what’s to come!
