Mangled Pianos (Official Video)

Bob Holroyd

‘Mangled Pianos’ is the lead track on the new two-track digital single from Bob Holroyd, out now on Real World X. Paired with the track ‘Steal’ these insistent, quietly rhythmical and predominantly ambient pieces are explorations in marking time, of waiting and reflecting. Echoes of being in the moment, even when you don’t know what that moment actually is. Of fluctuating emotions: anxiety, resignation and defiance! But, also, positivity and an increased appreciation of the things closest to us that we often overlook.

Video filmed and edited by Simon Painter. Produced & directed by Bob Holroyd and Simon Painter.
