You can already listen to the first single and title track »Seaward«.
The album concept draws inspiration from the sea and from the legend of the 7 pearls of the Tyrrhenian Sea, graphically developed in a visionary way by the artist Robin Gnista. The legend tells that Aphrodite, goddess of love and beauty, leaving the waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea proceeding towards the mainland to meet Eros, trying to adjust the necklace donated by Paris, broke the necklace, letting 7 pearls slide into the water, where they magically, remained on the surface and began to be populated by flora and fauna, giving life to the 7 wonderful islands of the Tuscan archipelago.
Seaward as an imaginary horizon, is developed in 7 passages as a reference to the 7 pearls of the Tyrrhenian, narrating myths closely related to the sea, from the magic of the Sirens and the sacrifice of Andromeda to the heroic adventures of Ulysses and the ruthless curse of Scylla. 7 like Aphrodite’s pearls and the number of days in each moon phase, which affects the tides and the mood of each individual who, during magical moments of solitude and reflection, finds refuge in the horizon and in the wonderful echo of the vibrations of this majestic expanse of water, looking “towards the sea”.
