Rising London artist Conrad returns to the musical forefront with a fresh release of his own in “Bonfire”, a powerful study on dealing with vulnerability and feelings of powerlessness with events around you.
The video is captivating with its use of striking imagery and breaktaking landscapes. Conrad is at one with his surroundings in his bespoke jacket, in solitude as he roams fields and valleys and sets a bonfire alight in a pensive form. The sparse, bold piano on the track, with its jagged baselines, perfectly complements Conrad’s superb vocal performance, and the deeply personal nature of Conrad’s lyrics.
The notable jacket is a custom creation from Marc Jacques Burton. Marc states: “The denim jacket we custom made is a reflection of Conrad’s inner thoughts and a mirror of the bonfire in the video.”
Speaking on the track, Conrad shared: “This song came to me at a time which most people will recognise – a place where you feel raw, emotional and exposed to the whole world. The bonfire is a metaphor for that feeling which is so hard to explain yet so recognisable to everyone you know.”
With a perfect amalgam of pure vocal talent and effortless style, Conrad’s emergence onto the scene is a bold one and the young artist already seems destined for very big things this year.
