Just caught wind of a new track by a soulful Aussie (yes, again) singer - EJ Worland. It's called "Over the Pond" and from the first few notes, you are transported to another world - an older, more lush world (especially if you're like me and have basically been isolated all year, it's a nice escape.)
But his video for "Over The Pond" - from masks to video calls - shows how the world really is right at this moment. (The song also is a nod to his move from AU to the USA last year.)
Said Worland about "Over The Pond," "Like the majority of the world, COVID has had a huge impact on my career. I haven’t been able to book shows and no one knows when the next gig will be and when we all can enjoy live music again. I've found comfort and support in listening back to "Over The Pond". For me, the song speaks to the anxiety of today. It has helped me solidify that I need to stick to what my purpose is, and that's to take charge of what I’m doing and keep the wheels moving. If the wheels stop, they will rust."
More music from EJ is expected out soon, but until then, enjoy this:
