Illuminate (Lyrics by Sachal Vasandani)

No one in the world is more ready for this than you
Right now you gotta make up your mind
You just can’t keep on wasting this time

Shouldn’t even listen to those people anyway

They’re gonna say what they say
Can’t change their mind
Now that everything’s illuminated
It’s finally your time
It’s finally your time

Nobody know how this is going to turn out
Nobody knows what’s right

Beyond is the only way now
Take off and you’ll figure out how
To leave it all behind you
Nobody can find you

Even if you take the time you need
It’s still there you just have to Believe
It’s within you
It’s within you
It’s within you
To the light to the light to the light
It’s within you
It’s withinu it’s within u

In the light of day
Nothing in your way
Empty space
Not running away
Just illuminate
Don’t even need to hide
In the light of day
Nothing in your way
Empty space
Not running away
Just illuminate

Who are u
Who are you
Who are you
Can you do this

Who are u
Who are you
Who are you
Can you do this

Who are u
Who are you
Who are you
Can you do this

Where the Streets Lead is the new album from Slowly Rolling Camera, following on from their acclaimed 2018 album, Juniper. Colliding the worlds of jazz, trip-hop and cinematic soundscapes, their music blends strong melodies, big grooves and surprising turns of phrase, infused with expansive emotional gravitas. With this album, recorded throughout 2020, the music takes on a greater scale which includes an 8-piece string section and a list of world-class guests including Mark Lockheart, Jasper Høiby, Verneri Pohjola, Chris Potter and Sachal Vasandani, as well as the band’s regular guitarist Stuart McCallum.

This is an album about opportunity, about embracing unknowns and seeing what life throws at you. It’s a reflection on searching for balance, a sense of purpose and identity in everyday life. For the core group of Dave Stapleton, Deri Roberts and Elliot Bennett, it’s a unified take on the journey and the influences that have shaped them all individually and as a collective.

Where the Streets Lead is emphatic in its purpose to communicate the joy of collaboration and to communicate through an audio-sensory landscape their vision of the world. There is a boldness and simplicity in its conception balanced with the attention to detail in its production. With Juniper, their new pathway was set. Where the Streets Lead, is a natural progression and development of the bands’ exploration.
