Guitar EP progress update

Working on two new tracks for my upcoming instrumental rock guitar EP. Both are kind of sombre tracks. The first is called "Lost in Decay" and the second is "Walk in Sorrow". Not exactly uplifting but I find expressing sadness and despair is very cathartic.

"Lost in Decay" is about the feeling of isolation living in the modern world can sometimes produce. "Walk in Sorrow" is about life after you've lost someone who was a big part of who you are and how you carry on after that loss.

Faded Memories Video

A conceptual music video for the latest track from my instrumental rock guitar EP "Apple Blood" This video is for the song "Faded Memories". No guitar solos on this one. I was going for a more atmospheric, ambient vibe. Song is meant to be a reflection on what happens when you remember forgotten parts of yourself and events of the past that at one time you would've never thought you would struggle to recall.
