Haunted Continents releases music video for “What Were You Born For?”

Former Deli NYC Best Emerging Artist James A. M. Downes — known under the moniker Haunted Continents — has released a new track called "What Were You Born For?", along with a lyric video. In the description of the video, Downes mentions that the song’s inspiration — as well as its soaring sound — come from his experience stumbling around a New York bookstore and reading about the Left Hand Path, along with those who envision a daemon helping them down that path to answer the question asked in the title of Downes’s new song. Downes and friends shot the video in different areas of New York City, on Brooklyn rooftops and in Manhattan crosswalks, on empty trains and in busy intersections – you can stream it below. – Will Sisskind
