Canadian artist ROGOV and former frontman of 80s-era rockers ARKITEX questions life and celebrates its flow as he unveils his stunning, take-pause new single, “Mistakes Are Beautiful” — available now.
“Looking back at 36 years of living in California, where the ceaseless sun blurs the seasons and melts the years into long view, a question of mistakes swept over me,” ROGOV — nee Vladymir Rogov — considers. “I mused on the things that had become of me and wondered: what if my entire life is made out of mistakes?”
Collaborating with former Bowie lead guitarist, plus long-time friend and collaborator, Gold- and Platinum-selling, award-winning Canadian producer Stacy Heydon (Teenage Head, Sheriff, Long John Baldry), the song lands ahead of his forthcoming EP, Tourist.
The video, helmed by Canadian photographic artist Deborah Samual, showcases the journey and insight ROGOV gleaned upon his return to Prince Edward County, Ontario after living for years in San Diego, California.
Early praise for the song and video abound; “‘Mistakes are Beautiful’ is a visual work of modern film art,” Alannah Myles enthuses. “Beautifully shot and edited, (like) ‘Steve McQueen late-60s chic, desert’ cool.
“I loved the track,” she adds. “(The) audio mix was thoughtful, complicated, and extremely interesting.”
“Mistakes are Beautiful” is available now.
