Freedom Candlemaker is the project of Greek composer and producer Lefteris Moumtzis. A literal English translation of his name, Freedom Candlemaker sees Lefteris venturing into bigger soundscapes and deeper songwriting than his previous endeavors. The raw and edgy “Astral Body” is the second single from his debut album Beaming Light. Lefteris describes the single as a track about “transcending oneself, overcoming fear and finding the courage to live up to one’s full potential.”
Everything about “Astral Body” from the video down to the pulsating drive of the music has this otherworldly allure. Lefteris says the track is meant “to put you in a trance and take you on a journey within.” Its psychedelic, avant-garde approach results in both sonic and visual splendor. Directed by fashion photographer and author Filep Motwary and filmed in Cyprus, the music video for “Astral Body” couldn’t be a more perfect representation of the song and its mystique. Inner Ear Records will be releasing “Astral Body” digitally today, and look for Freedom Candlemaker’s album Beaming Light out early 2019.
