Vatican Premiere “Beneath One” Music Video

Vatican have premiered a new video for their new song “Beneath One.” This track is from the band’s new album “Sole Impulse,” which will be released on November 15.

Jonathan Whittle commented:

“The video represents crossing over into the ‘Umbra,’ or spirit world — a realm existing alongside the material world. It depicts a kid fixated to a body bag in a darkened world, curious as to why he is drawn to the matter. He notices the bag covered in blood and slowly begins to open it before realizing the body inside is his physical self.

From opening the bag, he examines the body, where the wound addresses his heart being ripped out from all the evils of the world. The fire is shown to reflect our old ways and traditions being purged. It ignites the soul to be pushed into another realm, or metaphorically speaking, headspace.

The band wearing all white represents ‘the light,’ whereas when the kid crosses over, he notices that he is not alone in a dark place. From a spiritual standpoint, if we look at the earth being zero and the sun being one, we view our physical selves beneath the sun, knowing every morning the sun will rise; regardless of the state of the world or our hardships.

From this thought, we are given the option every new day to have our spiritual bodies remain at zero or rise above our physical selves by taking the initiative to work towards bettering ourselves. We must keep our spiritual bodies beneath one, but above self.”

Vatican Premiere “Sole Impulse” Music Video

Vatican have premiered a new video for their new song “Sole Impulse.” This is the title track of the band’s new album, which will be released on November 15.

Jonathan Whittle commented:

“The album ‘Sole Impulse‘ is about embracing your individual difference and using that to build yourself mentally and systematically. ‘Sole‘ being one and yours, and ‘Impulse‘ being the action of passion to gain what you desire.”

The title track reveals a strong mindset to condition myself towards remembering my roots and shifting into a higher caliber of thinking. It’s the entering of new energy. We destroy the greater things in our lives because we’ve found comfort in suffering and the attention it brings. ‘Sole Impulse‘ is the merge out by purging everything inside that weighs us down, leaving validation behind and knowing the work on your soul never ends.”
