Angel Vivaldi Premieres ". _ _ _ _" ("One") Music Video — Exclusive

Today, presents the exclusive premiere of ". _ _ _ _," the new video single by guitarist Angel Vivaldi. The song is from Vivaldi's latest self-release, Away With Words Pt. 1.

And in case you're wondering, ". _ _ _ _" isn't a typo. It means "One" in Morse code.

The track showcases everything this Ibanez artist has become known for, including soaring melodies, technical phrasing and seamless song arrangements.

"I put a ton of emotion into writing/now performing this song," Vivaldi says.

"For the video, I wanted to visually capture the dynamic of artistic struggle—which most of us know well—coupled with severe mental illness. The best thing an artist can do is to paint a picture in someone's mind of what a song would 'look' and 'feel' like. We really worked hard to achieve this, and I couldn't be more pleased with the results."

Away With Words Pt. 1 was released in March following Vivaldi's Universal Language EP, which includes "A Martian Winter" and "A Mercurian Summer." Both releases are available on iTunes and Bandcamp.
