Toby Jepson releases new retrospective solo album 'Viewfinder' and lyric video for 'Unwind'

 


Originally featured on his 2002 comeback EP 'Refresh'; 'Unwind' is an upbeat anthemic slice of alternative rock, tinged with pop smarts, that captures the Wayward Sons frontman in fine form. This re-released track is accompanied by a brand new lyric video:

"As I was resurfacing back into the fickle world of the music business back in 2002, I wrote 'Unwind' as a way of trying to explain my deep feelings of unease - about what I’m not really sure if I’m honest. There in lies the rub of anxiety and stress - it’s often hidden from view. I guess most of it was caused by the very ordinary need to navigate life and figure myself out having been away from music for quite some time; ‘am I good enough?’ ‘Will anyone care?’ - the imposter syndrome in action. Being a song writer allows for self examination and this song definitely underlines my needs at the time to seek a better way of relaxing and...well, unwinding.

I love this video. I left Jay (the director and creator) to his own devices. I asked him to use old film footage and he inadvertently used one of my favourite silent films - Nosferatu - as the basis. Great minds and all that. It perfectly sums up those intense feelings of stress and anxiety that I’m sure we all feel from time to time." - Toby Jepson

'Unwind' is taken from Toby Jepson's new retrospective compilation album 'Viewfinder', which is available to stream and download now:

The band combines existential lyrics about the human experience with blistering instrumentation.

The band teamed with renowned producer Kane Churko (Five Finger Death Punch, In This Moment, Ozzy Osbourne, Papa Roach) on the EP and new focus track ‘ Joke ”. Vocalist Caesar says of ‘Joke’: “The song reflects the illusory nature of the self, both in cyberspace and the physical world. No one is entirely what they may think or claim to be, even the most insightful among us. Moreover, today's technological trends and social platforms seem to have amplified our tendency toward self-delusion." He continues: "Maintaining a healthy sense of humility and open-mindedness can be challenging under more traditio
