Indie four piece The Hiding are back with their new single Karma My Life, showcasing their folk tinged sunny pop style once more.
Inspired by time spent soaking up the sounds of various different acoustic performers in New York’s Central Park (a rite of passage for any self respecting folk musician right?) you can really feel the atmosphere of street performance coming through. Deploying an almost Mumford & Sons style percussive guitar to drive things forward, you can almost hear the change being dropped in their hats as they play.
Lyrically the song offers hope, with the postive message running through many of the band’s songs. Lyricist and guitarist Anthony Salce explains: “Life can throw so many speed bumps and The Hiding has experienced its fair share of these.
“It can be deflating and soul damaging, however, these are life lessons we all experience and Karma My Life is about accepting these journeys, appreciating the turning point and celebrating the ‘positive experience’ that changed your life.”
Teaming up with masterful Italian sand artist Fatmir Mura for the video clip, the result sees Fatmir’s signature live, hand-crafted sand images tell the story behind the song. I don’t want to give anything away though, so why don’t you have a watch for yourself.
