Grammy-nominated artist Seth Glier has released the visuals to his latest single, "Somebody Break My Heart." The song is about the incredible healing powers of water through the lens of Seth's own personal relationship with the waters of Key West, Florida.
The song features instruments like the Plethora (waterphone), samples of water, and crushed sand that tie in with the song's theme, while the mesmerizing visuals follow a graceful aquatic dancer through the deep oceans and above magnificent reefs for a most calming, lucid experience.
Seth Glier has performed alongside artists including James Taylor, Ani DiFranco, Martin Sexton and more. His new album The Coronation is an invitation to forge a new, more beautiful world out of the current chaos. “For most of my adult life, I’ve held the belief that humanity is right around the corner from something transformative," Seth explains. "If we could only see that our separateness is an illusion, then a future of global cooperation and interdependence would be undeniable. As the coronavirus locked down the world, I watched this long-held belief inside of me becoming a reality right before my eyes. The dolphins returned to the Venice canals, and millions of children saw the stars for the first time. I wanted this album to feel like a roadmap towards reunion in a reconnected and repairing world."
The Coronation is a beautiful and powerful collection that explores an expansive range of musical styles and topics from the personal to the political. Glier has also won five Independent Music Awards. NPR describes his voice as “otherworldly” while praising him as “an engaging performer and storyteller.” His critically acclaimed, emotionally dense catalog of work often draws upon traditional roots music, experimental instrumentation, and moody atmospheres that result in soulfully intelligent stories that can alternately fight the power and break your heart.
Glier will share songs from The Coronation on the road later this year while continuing to connect with audiences using his eclectic, often humorous, and always insightful artistry. Summing up the project, Glier says, "’The Coronation’ marks the emergence of our collective unconscious into consciousness and the transcendence of compulsion into choice. I look at the last year of lockdown as sort of like an extended rehab healing us from the story of separation and offering us the courage to forge a new crown and become the rulers of that which had ruled us.”
