Having recently announced the release of their second EP ‘An Intrinsic Evolution’, alt/rock quartet The Autumn Ravine have unveiled the brilliant new video for single ‘Narcissus’. The track is the first insight that fans will get of the forthcoming record and emphasises the power and emotion that the EP holds.
Of the track, vocalist/guitarist Damon Griffiths told Punktastic: ” ‘Narcissus’ is written about a modern interpretation of the Greek mythological character Narcissus. In some versions of the tale, Narcissus drowned himself when he laid eyes upon his own reflection in a pond. He drowned because he admired his own appearance so much he fell in love with it and was unable to let it go. The track is a modern interpretation of this tale, because it is written about someone I once knew who became obsessed with social media status, appearing wealthy, the need to be what society deems as beautiful and ultimately herself, to the point in which she pushed me out of her life for not being up to this social standard. Personally I find it sad that many people live their life focusing on their wealth, social status and physical attributes rather than on the important things in life like knowledge, family, friends and the experiences you share with them, which is an overarching theme across the entire EP.”
