On 1st July, EWAN MACFARLANE (Apollo 440 / Grim Northern Social) sways back into the spotlight with new single: ‘Tangled’.
A feedback-drenched rock ballad to rival the best, the new track swiftly follows recent single ‘All Those Years’ and finds Ewan paving the way towards his eagerly anticipated second solo album,‘MILK’ (confirmed for release this Autumn).
Dramatic, rootsy rock with an undercurrent of Americana-tinged songcraft, ‘Tangled’ is also performed with a forceful, grunge-like intensity which only amplifies its emotional punch. Ewan’s voice further powers its passionate heart, his poise and control matched by the raw feeling of an artist who delivers every line with utmost conviction. A love song as complicated as its title might allude, it finds Ewan exploring the often unconventional and knotted nature of the relationships we form. As Ewan explains:
“‘Tangled’ comes across as an almost possessive type of love song in the realms of ‘Every Breath You Take’. Although it screams a neediness, it also exudes a more in depth meaning about its tangible content. It’s about being caught up so much in your lover that you almost can’t get close enough and therefore you need to be literally ‘tangled’ in each other with the twists and turns of life. That desire exceeds anything that life throws at you.”
Arriving with a striking official video, the visuals for ‘Tangled’ were shot at Buchanan Castle, a dilapidated country house near Loch Lomond that dates back to 1724. Starring Ewan alongside two women dressed in white, the elegant choreography of the entwining dancers provides an apt metaphor that echoes themes at play.
