Produced by Jason Shaw (Cambodian Space Project) and mastered by Mark Gardener from Ride, the new single from Astrid frontman Charlie Clark, ‘Blink of an Eye’, was recorded in Uig on the Isle of Lewis, alongside other sessions for Charlie Clark’s upcoming album: ‘Late Night Drinking’.
“I was getting overwhelmed with melancholy about relationships and mistakes I’d made and things I should and have not done etc,” Clark says, having recently returned home after many years living in LA.
“I was reflecting on more microcosmic internal issues…. I refer to my mind as radio K-F**k fairly often. Sometimes the best thing to do when you feel overwhelmed is nothing at all.”
The video was directed by Clark himself as he explains: “I wanted the video to be like a hallucination where you can feel the vibrations and rhythms of the most simple things.
“Where everything is still but incredibly vibrant. Like meditation… or good mushrooms”.
