Paradise has returned to Los Angeles and Southern California this month—thankfully. The fires are out, fire season has winded down, and the smoke is gone.
Granted, the city is still shut down, but at least we have the mountains and the ocean and beautiful weather. Shutting down nature is not only difficult, its simply cruel, and wholly unnecessary. So we are thankful that we at least have this! We are still missing the concerts, art museums, orchestras, nightclubs, and gyms. We hope this changes SOON!
During times of turmoil, fear, difficulty, or challenge; music, art, and film can offer us a refuge and a place of healing to get deeper in touch with our spirit, to release our feelings, and to celebrate what we have, and to heal. For this reason among many more, the artists among us ARE essential workers, and important to the very essence of society. The artists of the world are the soul of its culture. Today, there is no better band to represent that fact than London Grammar.
One of the most powerful and significant newer bands of our time, critically acclaimed British trio London Grammar recently released a new video for their soaring new single “Baby It’s You” (Columbia Records). Directed by Oriol Puig, the music video was filmed on location in the forests of Catalonia and is intertwined with 3D generated imagery created by Trizz Studios. See more with London Grammar in our “Music’s Greatest” page here in this new issue of The Hollywood Sentinel.
