Speaking about the theme of ‘The Devil’s Eyes’, Vidal explains: “Often times this can cloud our judgment and this conflict can spill into other areas of our life and can have a dramatic impact on our goals or even our loved ones. Things will inadvertently get caught in the crossfire and when we take a moment to step back and look at the big picture, we can see how there was nothing or no one else to blame but our lack of foresight and judgment when faced with difficult situations that we mismanaged.”
Original and characteristic, ‘The Devil’s Eyes’ is a bright flame that burns slowly with organic continuity, fluttering softly between whispers, a bluesy dark guitar, and a rap-style flow tiptoeing between sober and confused.
‘The Devil’s Eyes’ is available for streaming on Spotify and Soundcloud. Be sure to find out more about Vidal and his music. Find him all over the web by checking the links below:
