Song Illustration: Tangled Wire by Roddy Woomble

Here's a new song illustration for the song 'Tangled Wire' on the new album by Roddy Woomble 'The Impossible Song & Other Songs' it's fast becoming a favourite. I got to see him last week at the Union Chapel in London, it was a really special gig in an amazing venue, check out the stained glass and windows giving amazing light as the sun set in my photos below.

One of my favourite tracks is 'Tangled wire' and not only because it mentions Skye, Kyle and catching the boat to the Western Isles (which I know well as Uig (where the boat goes from) is close to my heart!), It's a beautiful song about how life is like a tangled wire and how sometimes you just can't unwind things and that's okay you just have to accept that, which is reassuring to know as I feel so tightly wound and unfree at the moment. Here's my illustration for it incorporating random imagery from the song you can see a larger version on my flickr and you can listen to the song and whole album on spotify here.
