The release of this amazing single and the accompanying video is mesmerizing
Ashleigh Harley recently released ‘Judge Me‘ to raise awareness for her epic, fantasy film, book and music trilogy ‘Wall of Lyon’. As a talented musician who is building momentum in her rising career, Ashleigh Harley has burst into 2018 with a real buzz on the pop music and fantasy film scene.
With a foot in the doorway of literature, film, dance and music, Ashleigh has mixed several of her creative sources to build the fictional masterpiece that is ‘The Wall of Lyon’. Releasing Judge Me as a single and a music video to tease the motion picture and the album, the track clearly reflects the theme and storyline of the action movie. Her fourth coming track uses a unique mixture of pop, dance, world and electronic genres including a heavy Metallica style solo at the end on an Ibanez guitar from Ashleigh herself.
The track ‘Judge Me‘ and accompanying video truly gives us an insight into what we can expect from the motion picture. Featuring a catchy melody, Ashleigh’s eerie vocals and a subtle but mind bending baseline accompanied with thrashing tribal drums, the track reflects the thought provoking and fast moving plot of Ashleigh’s film. Using the ‘Judge Me‘ theme to indicate the theme of the fantasy series, the lyrics ‘Hate me, fake me, you can never break me’ refer to the theme of oppression, a theme lots of people from every walk of life will be able to relate to.
With Ashleigh’s alternative society ‘Lyon’ clearly being a reflection of our own, and The Walls surrounding the civilization being a metaphor for repression, protagonist ‘Cassini’ boldly promotes change for the future of our culture, meaning young people can relate to Ashleigh’s powerful creations.
Visually, the music video is impressive, entertaining to watch. Flicking between scenes from the film and images of the director, Ashleigh Harley, showcases her electrifying dance moves to fans of the epic saga. Utilizing some clever camera tricks, including having 3 Ashleigh’s dancing simultaneously, having a terrifying beast towering over her and having Ashleigh’s silhouette pan across our screens, all adding to the vibe. The video is both edited professionally to a high standard along with many aesthetically appealing scenes.
