5 years ago we called in all our favours and spent a few hundred pounds shooting our video for ‘Real’ on this very dance floor. What felt like our last shot turned out to be just the beginning. Watching this video now I get a deep belly knot of feelings. How did we get from there to here ? It’s almost like I’m a completely different person, then again I don’t know if I’ve changed so much - maybe just a bit more confidence and a smaller ear.
This time of year always gets me thinking like this, reflecting, realizing things.... I can see the prototype of Palo Santo in the Real video ( not just because Ben Whishaw appears in both - thank you ben ❤ ) , I start thinking about all the things that have happened along the way and the experiences that have shaped my life. I think of all the people, places and mistakes I am so grateful for. I wish i could articulate better what these years have taught me, but I can’t. I’ll save my words somewhere and keep them for the songs :-). Thank you for continuing to be with us, our fans are truly awesome keep doing your thing and being kind ❤ I’m a big believer of positive mental attitude optimism all things shining and magical so I’m doing a little incantation for you all, and for myself, that the new year brings us many blessings and that we may receive them with grace. Also my New Years resolution is to have more sex. Wish me luck! Happy new Years and Years everybody :-) here’s to more weird sexy magic in 2019 ✨🦋👻 Olly xx
