Charlotte Mabon "Across the Veil" out today.
Featuring intricate guitar, sweeping vocal harmonies and guest spot from shakuhachi player and label-mate Adrian Freedman, the gorgeous, bittersweet instrumentation is matched by powerful and personal lyrics about a darker issue:
“'Across the veil' is a song written to light the way of a dear brother, much loved in our community, who tragically took his life after using Xanax recreationally in 2018, a victim of suicidal ideation, one of the drugs known side effects” explains Charlotte. “'This song came through in the weeks and months after his passing as the many layers and forms of grief were exposed within and around me. It's a song that speaks of the broken hearts and love, not lost but forever transformed. Above all, it heeds the call to rise above the mind's desperate struggle to understand and to simply honour the way of this beautiful young man we were so blessed to know.”
