“Backed by a debut single in honour of the heart-breaking situation in Ukraine, ‘Where Did You Go’ adopts the perspective of a local person ensnared in the turmoil. Liliya brings these issues and observations to light in a divinely genuine and faultlessly melodic manner. All proceeds from Where Did You Go will be donated to The British-Ukrainian Aid Charity.”
Peter, songwriter and founding member of The Ardents along with Liliya, a super talented singer and musician, have brought this new art-pop venture to life.
“Softly juxtaposing the beauty of soul-driven performance and melody, with the often-relentless ache and uncertainty of living, the enchanting sound of Wall Side illuminates the true experiences of a life lived on the lines between turmoil and peace.”
— Music press review
The muse for the song comes from the Greek myth of Dido and Aeneas.
During the Trojan War Aeneas’s town was destroyed and he had to leave with the rest of the Trojans to escape.
As it goes, he went in search of his destiny. That is when he met Dido, the queen of Carthage.
After Aeneas and Dido fell in love, Jupiter convinced Aeneas to leave Dido. He did this so Aeneas would continue on his journey to found Rome.
Aeneas went to Dido to tell her that he was leaving, Dido became distraught, losing her mind, unable to deal with the news the love of her life was following Jupiter's command and leaving.
Incapable of facing life without Aeneas, she set a curse of fire, war and death on the Romans, before uttering her final words "Let the Tempest be my grace" and killing herself with the sword he had left behind.
