Somewhere in 9th Century Britain, a mystical army enters the kingdom on the East side, and this is no ordinary group of Heathens - in fact this band of mysterious mercenaries may not even be human...
An Alien Invasion In The Petty Kingdoms (Part 1: Prelude) is the debut EP from folk collective Awen Veleda & The Wandering Lights. Told through various characters across 5 tracks the EP explores how people deal with the unexpected, manage change through their own beliefs and context, and find ways to work together.
At this point in our story the King, struggling to uncover the facts of the situation and separate them from rumour and superstition, realises that unusual challenges usually require creative solutions. He concludes that to achieve the greater good you sometimes have to do something bad, and contacts The Priestess Lucrezia to see if her visions can offer guidance - whilst praying to his own God for forgiveness.
Will his gamble with the old beliefs pay out? Or will fate show no mercy?
