Shortlisted piece Blind
Blind sits across contrasts – driven yet static, steady yet delicately wavering, forward moving yet nostalgic. In some ways, it is a peaceful moment, a meditation of sorts, and in others a melancholy lament.
Blind will feature as part of Connor’s upcoming album due to be released at the end of August.
