Deserted Eyes

A Song. A Country. A Plague.
How toxic depression poisons Greek society

ATHENS – January 10, 2018: Progressive art rock multi-instrumentalist Oh.’s new single, “Deserted Eyes” reveals the consequences of deliberately extending depressive circumstances as a means to an end.

Oh’s award winning music video for the song, “Trials – A Song for a Lost Generation” – gave voice to the lost decade of young adults during the Greek economic crisis.

Her new release, “Deserted Eyes” continues to report how extended periods of dark, depressed and toxic states of mind poison our interpersonal relationships, steal away ambitions, hopes and finally sever the connection to one’s soul and sense of self.

The video for “Deserted Eyes” was filmed in Glyfada, a southern suburb of Athens, Greece in the late summer of 2017. During the filming of the video clip for “Deserted Eyes”, an oil spill occurred precipitated by the negligence of the Greek state- an ecological disaster in the waters of the Saronikos. On the last day of filming the beach was covered in oil, dead birds and the stench of petrol in the air.

The oil spill starkly depicted — with the blackening of the earth, toxic fumes, death of wildlife — the irreparable damage to the interpersonal relationships shared everyday by the coastal community and tourists from around the world. During post-production the correlation that tragic event had to the song could not be ignored and the music video depicts the intensity of the shock to our ecosystem.

In the song “Deserted Eyes” dynamic and rhapsodic vocals attempt to summon forth the soul again.

The song warns of the responsibility we all have to not leave our mind unattended, not to let it to settle too long in dark and despondent moods, to be aware how others or external conditions impose their dark agendas on our mental states — casting an immutable spell unwittingly upon us and eventually spreading to those we love.

Is there a way to reverse the spell? “The song “Deserted Eyes” may have an answer.

“Deserted Eyes” is now available for pre-order exclusively on Bandcamp and the music video on Vimeo OnDemand. The single will be available on all streaming services on January 19, 2018.

“Something rare and unique about this artist. A young female multi instrumentalist composer and vocalist in the realm of progressive rock. Makes me a bit misty in this day of EDM muzak. Lovely textures throughout, from acoustic guitars, haunting melodies behind the powerful narration. Solid Prog cred on the arrangement, with stellar production value head to toe on sound and image. OH is force to be embraced with gratitude by any ProgArt rock fan, of which I am one.”
Mark Alan Dooley ~ Fluence

Definitely a piece of progressive art by a very talented young woman. ~ Angelo Hulshout – Background Magazine

Production Notes

Production Note
“Deserted Eyes” was filmed at the seashore in Glyfada a southern suburb of Athens, Greece in the late summer of 2017. During the filming, a ttragic oil spill occurred precipitated by the negligence of the Greek government – an ecological disaster in the waters of the Saronikos. On the last day of filming the beach was covered in oil, dead birds covered in tar and the stench of petrol in the air.

The song “Deserted Eyes” is about how a person’s dark, depressed and toxic states of mind can poison our interpersonal relationships and eventually dim the light of the soul in the other’s eyes, stealing their aspirations, hopes and finally the connection to their own soul and sense of self. The oil spill starkly depicted — with the blackening of the earth, toxic fumes, depressed state all present experienced, the death of wildlife — the irreparable damage to the interpersonal relationships shared everyday by all the beach-goers and coastal community. During post-production, we could not ignore the correlation that tragic event had to the song and so incorporated the visuals into the final clips.
