Happiness is to be found when in pursuit of it, in the soothed expectation, on the way, not only upon the arrival. Accepting detours, just going the way, which is anyhow not this obvious to anyone.
Thomas Bettinelli

Happiness is just a hairflip away.

"The way the system works now, you see the clothes, within an hour or so they're online, the world sees them. They don't get to a store for six months. The next week, young celebrity girls are wearing them on red carpets. They're in every magazine. The customer is bored with those clothes by the time they get to the store. They're overexposed, you're tired of them, they've lost their freshness".

Ray Isaac - "Hiding"

After "U want or U don't", "Who I am" and "Travolta" (click on titles to be redirected) released in 2014, Australian pop singer Ray Isaac is finally back with a new song entitled "Hiding". Based on his own experience, the controversial music video directed by Roy Sherfan exposes the truth religious groups attempt to hide while shedding light on what transpires behind closed doors with some people still performing electro shock therapy in secret. Some years ago, he turned to counselling and even shock therapy in a bid to suppress his homosexuality while growing up in a Catholic Lebanese family in Western Sydney. "I say, no more hiding", explained the artist. "It’s time to hold mirrors up towards ignorant religious groups and force them to face the unrealistic terms and conditions placed on the LGBT community. We must expose what is going on behind ‘holy closet doors’ and change the rules to be more inclusive of all human beings", he stated. The story he tells in this song encapsulates a common situation about a boy who is in love with another boy -who also loves him back- but is forced to be with a girl; ultimately, they must decide to either keep hiding or set themselves free and pay the consequences. Ray Isaac's edgy brand of pop music has been referred to as "an emotionally-driven rollercoaster ride" that sounds like "a shot of Sam Smith has been dropped into a David Guetta Jägerbomb ". "My wish is that my experiences will help heal people’s scars and show them they are special... and ultimately worthy of happiness", he continued. "Through the power of [this] music video and other avenues I’m exploring, the buzz surrounding the exposure of ignorant religious beliefs -with regard to the gay community- will become a roar", he concluded.
