Today Canada’s Alexis Castrogiovanni is sharing the incredibly cinematic video for “Someday My Thoughts Will Be Like a Range of Mountains” as well as announcing her debut EP of the same name. Check out the stunning video directed by Millefiore Clarkes premiering on Week In Pop today. Regarding the single, WIP stated that “Alexis paints poems of the heart, spirit and mind with the mediums lent by the systems of the universe where orchestrations of exquisite grandeur are interwoven from the fabrics of elements that arrange and rearrange themselves according to the artist’s own passionate design.” Someday My Thoughts Will Be Like a Range of Mountains will be self-released on September 21st . Pre-order the record HERE.
Alexis Castrogiovanni’s pared-down, emotional musical landscapes employ genres from classical and folk to trip-hop and punk. Trained as a cellist, a lifetime of conservatory training emboldened her to interweave the expected with the unexpected, the structural with the improvisatory, inhabiting the limbo between singer-songwriter and classical musician. In her music, you can hear echoes of Arcade Fire saxophonist Colin Stetson, with her voice and writing sitting in comfortable companionship with singer-songwriters like Regina Spektor, Tori Amos, and Mitski—other classically trained musicians who dare to subvert genre. Someday My Thoughts Will Be Like a Range of Mountains is an EP reflecting on the four years of musical exploration that followed the end of Alexis’ formal classical training. In this time, Alexis taught herself songwriting, nurturing a long-held love of poetry that had few outlets in her cello studies. Her lyrics are part poetry, part self-philosophy, as she gives a window into her searches for meaning, and slowly learning to love. As her debut EP, Someday My Thoughts Will Be Like a Range of Mountains features some of the industry’s premier audio talents: Polaris Prize winner Jon Kaspy (Jeremy Dutcher) as recording engineer, with mixing by Grammy winner Mark Lawson (Arcade Fire), and Mastering by Harris Newman (Wolf Parade, A Silver Mt. Zion). The music video for the title track, Someday My Thoughts Will Be Like a Range of Mountains, was directed by Millefiore Clarkes (National Film Board of Canada).
