Universe Garden is the third song of ‘Eight’ the new album of Francesco Fonte Band. the duration of the track is about 6 minutes. With this song the band recalls the 80’s goth and dark rock. Watch here
The track starts with nostalgic, romantic and poetic lyrics supported by a very incisive and essential bass line and psychedelic guitars. During the third verse the music gets heavier with heavier drums and distorted guitars while the goth influence on lyrics and bass line continues. One of the best songs the band has ever released. The video has been shot by Torturett Photography in Hampstead Heath, London. The black and white colours match the atmosphere and the mysterious story behind the lyrics. The intention of Torturett is to leave the meaning of the video open to the interpretation of the audience. Although it clearly shows the anxiety and mystery around the main act, the young lady, who is dancing in the forest enjoying the loneliness, the darkness and maybe thinking to get totally lost in it and never come back. She is maybe a little step away from taking her own life or maybe she did already and all we see is just her spirit wandering around while the three guys are looking for her. It could metaphorically represent her journey through madness and the joy to live her own life loosing the sense of reality, escaping from a cruel world to the hidden side of her mind, an imaginary place called Universe Garden.
