We love Sirens of Titan at 55HQ..
Not only is kingpin, John-Paul Pryor our issue 12 cover star, he is a man with many talents: author, writer, host, editor, singer/songwriter and actor. All of which he manages to squeeze in alongside his general galavanting around the globe!
When I first heard the latest release, 'Sweet Surrender' from his musical project, The Sirens of Titan, I had it on repeat. Filled with haunting lyrics which are strangely upbeat, Pryor sings from the soul to create a beautiful modern bluesy sound. With much to be said about the cyclical nature of music, which ebbs and flows with constant reconstructions, this song cross-contaminates so many genres, and this track is addictively fresh.
The song Sweet Surrender is taken from the album Apocalypse Sessions, and the video has been picked up for it's premier on Playboy France, which obviously know a thing or two about beautiful women. The beautiful woman in question, and star of the video is actress and model Jade-Lorna Sullivan, who epitomises the ghostly memory, and explores how psychologically-complex women can be.
Directed by Bonnie Foster, the real is morphed with the surreal, and in the barren landscape of an LA desert, the hypnotic lyrics, like the fire mesmerise and invigorate.
Watch, listen and get inspired!
