Video of the Moment #1986: Fictonian

Glen Roberts, better known by his far more regal stage name Fictonian, released his debut album ‘Desire Lines’ last November. (It’s so good, it made the #1 spot on my top albums of 2015.) This week, the haunting last track of the LP, ‘Full Circle Influence’, got its own promo video. It’s animated, swinging back and forth between romantic visions of flowers and guitar players to inanimate geometric shifting shapes. To me, what ends up being more powerful are the specific lyrics that come up on the screen as they are being sung, reminding us all the power of the written (and sung) word. Watch the video below.
