Wildwood Kin Share Video For ‘Beauty In Your Brokenness’

Following another busy summer of festivals, including an incredible performance at Glastonbury, family acoustic-rock trio Wildwood Kin continue to build momentum for the release of their self-titled sophomore album on 4th October by sharing the new visually striking video to their single ‘Beauty in Your Brokenness’, which has just been added to the Radio 2 playlist.

The new single is an intimate acoustic lament that talks about self-acceptance. The track was inspired by the Japanese art of ‘Kintsugi’ – the idea of something becoming more beautiful for having been damaged or broken – which is further depicted in the video with parts of it incorporating a Kingtsugi-style effect.

Beth explains, “Have you heard about kintsugi? It is a Japanese art where they take broken pottery and put it back together using lacquer, dusted with gold and silver powder, to make a unique piece of art with intricate patterns only the brokenness creates. It is a reminder that our imperfections, mishaps and tragedies shape us and make us who we are.”

“We wanted the video to create a light-hearted, natural vibe to reflect the meaning behind the song and our personalities”, continues Meg. “We decided to choose warm, gold colours to represent the Kintsugi inspired meaning behind the song.  It was a great experience working with the team from Sitcom Soldiers. We hope everyone enjoys it as much as we did making it”.

Each track on the new album is built around a message that Wildwood Kin can get behind. The first track they previewed from ‘Wildwood Kin’ was the beautifully sombre, Fleetwood Mac-like ballad ‘Never Alone’, which was produced and co-written with Ed Harcourt. ‘Never Alone’ tackled a deeply personal subject and became a message to anyone feeling as isolated as Meg Loney’s brother, who sadly committed suicide. The stunning video that accompanied it complemented the song and lyrics perfectly, and was filmed in the West Pennine Moorlands – WATCH HERE.

The album will be released on CD, vinyl and digital/streaming via Silvertone Records/Sony, and is available to pre-order now, with ‘Never Alone’ and ‘Beauty In Your Brokenness’ provided as an instant downloads.
