Erki Pärnoja's new single and music video “Soledad” is a hymn to solitude
Estonian guitarist and songwriter Erki Pärnoja releases his new album “Leva” on 12th of February. Together with the album music video for “Soledad” will be revealed.
The new track “Soledad” from Erki Pärnoja’s latest album considers solitude as a sacred state. Inspired by modern day society where our words, thoughts and opinions can be and are heard in an infinite flow of information. “Soledad” is about confusing words and ideas that float around us every moment with our own thoughts. As the structure of the song is growing bit by bit in layers until it comes to a finale of a vast open field of sound, the story behind it moves inversely from the outer to the inner world — a place where silence rules over speech and solitude over society.
Solitude isn’t just an absence of someone or something but rather a timeless space of creativity, contemplation and comfort. An essence of freedom that consists of angst, depth, endless possibilities, tranquility. The best way to be absent, to restart and understand - be fully flexible and reshape yourself. The idea of this somewhat elusive void of a world was the inspiration for this video and from the very beginning of the process we’ve been in this incredibly bizarre mental state of understanding how and what we are doing. This philosophical connection has brought us to this visual solution between colour, movement and space. We must not escape the loneliness but live it fully.
