nobody wants to be alone
Releasing visuals to one of the standout tracks on his previously released album, Far From Familiar is Sylvan LaCue with "Loner". The original track, which features Linzi Jai, captured what everyone fears; loneliness. The Jonathan Benavente directed cut takes it the word, meaning, and theme of the song to visual reality exemplifying what it's like to let go and follow a new path.
The visual for "Loner" represents the struggle between hanging on to something too long and letting go in order to progress and move forward. In a more literal sense it is the struggle of moving on from a loved one and fighting to put the good memories aside to understand that in a particular situation the bad might outweigh the good. Human's by nature don't like change, even when the change is for the better. Being uncomfortable and unaware of how a situation plays out is not something normal humans gravitate to. That is why when we are put in a position to make a change it isn't always easy to follow through. What separates the ones who get stuck in an eternal rut and the ones who become great is the ability to find that change and take it head on. In a sense, the willingness to be uncomfortable is actually the key to ultimately getting to a place of real comfort. "Loner" represents Sylvan's ability to finally let go of a comfortable situation and pursue his path to greatness.
