All the Luck in the World release Contrails, a song full of emotions.

I love this beautiful song that made me reflect on some good times when I was younger. This was made easy due to the amazing emotional music video.  I have added it to my playlist. Check out Contrails below.



All the Luck in the World are three Irish songwriters – Neil Foot, Ben Connolly and Kelvin Barr – currently based in Berlin. The band create an intimate blend of Alternative-Folk and share a collective passion for storytelling, composition and song craft.

Contrails is the latest single to be taken from their forthcoming second album A Blind Arcade, and is a superbly nimble, giddy and fluttering piece of work. As a band that have notched up in excess of 10 million streams on Spotify, there’s a swell of anticipation among fans for new material.

The band’s Ben Connolly talks about the track: “Contrails was one of the first songs we started working on for this record. The lyrical framework for the song came about as a result of us giving some time to the thought that peoples lives often cross paths in such arbitrary situations, and that meaningful connections can occur even in seemingly fleeting moments.

As for the music video it’s a different storyline. Thomas approached us and told us that he had some ideas for our music, and we had some discussion about collaborating. We were really impressed by [Director] Thomas Vernay’s catalogue of work, and decided that for this song we would be give him free reign to interpret the piece of music himself, and to create a story accordingly. Thomas had a clear vision and it turned to be a nice opportunity for us to see a different way in which our music could be interpreted.”
