Alternative rock band Pharmacose has released the official music video for “The Clearing”. Directed by Kurt St. Thomas, “The Clearing” is a psychologically introspective, punk infused track off of the band’s new EP, “Prescription Fiction, Vol 1”.
“I wrote ‘The Clearing’ during a recovery phase of a manic episode I had a couple of years back. I was trying to get my life back in order and was trying to come to terms with my diagnosis. During the verses I am almost reliving what I felt like during the episode: ‘Raging and reckless, out of control.’
But the chorus is me, looking backward, making sense of what was going on during that time. There is a sort of internal dialogue that I am having, trying to convince myself that things are going to be okay. I think in the end I do manage to convince myself, but not before reliving the chaos.” – Wes Jones (Singer)
