Crystal Arrow Films getting up to their tasty visual ways with Luke Carlino.
Words by Anthony Nocera
After playing rock music for the better part of a decade, Luke Carlino is set to make some serious waves with his latest project. Going out solo with nothing but an acoustic guitar, a loop pedal and his stunning voice, Carlino’s music has a raw emotionality that, when combined with his layered soundscapes, creates a hypnotic experience for the listener.
Teaming up with local director and filmmaker Kieran Ellis-Jones of Crystal Arrow Films, Carlino has just released the video for the first song off of his Islands EP, ‘Making Maps’. Featuring Joe Braithwaite of Lowrider, the song is an exploration of the complexities of relationships as they mature over time and the challenges of navigating the feelings and needs of others whilst simultaneously having to deal with and manage our own. It’s a song about the process by which we lose someone else in order to find ourselves, and the bittersweet emotions associated with realising that the person you’re building a future with has a completely different vision for what that future is.
Filmed at the beautiful Anstey Hill Recreation Park just out of Adelaide, the video is the perfect accompaniment to a song that is as discordantly beautiful as it is painfully intricate.
In support of this landmark achievement, Carlino will be performing at The Jade Monkey on July 24 in support of Jay Power. You can join the event right here.
