Wicked Penguin || Until the End (Steampunk music on the Baritone Ukulele)

This is the first that I've heard of  "Escape the Clouds" and Wicked Penguin gives quite an intense performance. 

"A little insomnia + a baritone ukulele = a rearrangement of track 8 from my album Until the End. The song is essentially a steampunk retelling of the story of the CSS Shenandoah, the only Confederate ship to circumnavigate the world. The song is not about politics and other sensitive issues. It's about a crew stranded thousands of miles from home, whose country has ceased to exist and who are now branded as pirates by the surrender documents."
