LOKI ROTHMAN sent two brilliant releases into the world in 2015 exhibiting his amazing diversity as a musician. His debut album, The Way Back, is a pop album with elements of acoustic, rock and electronic and displays Loki’s singer-songwriter side. His guitar instrumental DVD, Syndactyly, released last week, showcases this maestro’s unbelievable guitar skills.
The 5th single from his singer-songwriter debut album, The Way Back, is out now.
Watch the music video for Under the Stars below!
The video was shot just after the big fires in Cape Town round the Noordhoek and Kommetjie area. The story is set against a fighting relationship of a damaged crazy beautiful couple. The idea that love never dies. The idea of not being able to give up on love, pain, and tenacity.
Loki says that the song has come a long way. It started out as an idea for a music score. “The first verse has been sitting in my idea box for about 3 years and was funnily enough inspired by the visuals of the movie Life of Pi."
"Under the stars I sit and wait for you to shine some light. Would you ever find your way back? Would you come home tonight?"
“The song is about seeing a relationship go to waste after you've done everything you can to save it,” says Loki.
"Are you giving up on me now?. Watching as it all comes down. Watching as my flare burns out. There’s no one here to save us now."
The idea of hope that things will work out also plays a role.
"Some folks say just forget it. Some folks say just wait. Maybe you’re still out there. Maybe it's not too late."

Under the stars I sit and wait
For you to shine some light
Would you ever find your way back
Would you come home tonight
Some folks say just forget it
Some folks say just wait
Maybe your still out there
Maybe it’s not too late
Are you giving up on me now
Watching as it all comes down
Watching as my flare burns out
There’s no one here to save us now
There’s nothing left to burn here
Can you still see my light
I know your still somewhere out there
Just searching for a sign
