Wind In Sails, the solo project of Evan Pharmakis, is now premiering a new music video for “Side By Side” via Diffuser.

“This song is about the sadder parts of love. It’s a culmination of all my past loves and my current one, sort of a collage of different memories. It’s young love, insecurity, and loss, while never losing sight of the fact that you’ll always have a place in your heart for the people who played a part in your life,” reveals Pharmakis. “The recording style came out really cool. I’ve been experimenting with finger picking and slap style and this was my first song trying that out. It has a very personal and raw vibe to it, and I love how it came out.”

“Side By Side” comes from the Newport, RI-based artist’s sophomore full-length Morning Light, which is out now via Headphone Music (an imprint of Equal Vision Records). Morning Light is available for purchase from and via digital retetailers such as iTunes and AmazonMP3.

Wind In Sails is currently on tour with SayWeCanFly, Casey Bolles, and Sounds Like Harmony. The month long run will wrap up tomorrow in Columbus, OH. Wind In Sails has previously toured and shared stages with the likes of PVRIS, A Loss For Words, A Rocket to the Moon, mewithoutYou, Our Last Night, the Vans Warped Tour and more.

Morning Light was recorded at Apparition Sound Studios in Thompson, CT with producer Chris Curran. The 11-track album serves as a follow-up to Brighter Days, an eight-song album released in October 2012 and the more recent Darker Nights EP (October 2013) – a raw, stripped down release touching on the loss of loved ones and betrayal of friendship, while still holding an underlying message of optimism. He elaborates, “No matter how horrible things can get, with a positive mentality there’s nothing we can’t push through. Things will always get better with time to heal.”

“The new album is a perfect balance between stripped down, intimate songs, and more deeply produced, full-bodied tracks,” reveals Pharmakis. “Morning Light represents both the beginning of a new day, and the first step on the road ahead for Wind In Sails.”
