Yep, this is a breaking news. Tomorrow We Move To Hawaii have released their music video ‘Breaking News’ directed by Lily X. Every time I see a new video I always ask myself ‘Why’ and ‘how did they think’, and this video is not an exception. But then I heard the story about the video and yeah, now I get it, it’s genius and it’s important. So first of all I will give the band an air five for an cool song and their performance in the video which is incredible. But then I would like you guys to read the story about the video because this will give you a bigger picture of the video and I think you will realise the point about making the video.
From director Lily X: “Marianne and Eyvind (Tomorrow We Move to Hawaii) used sound bytes from a rally in Russia protesting Putin’s anti gay laws. The law basically prohibits any kind of expression of non traditional sexuality around minors. The energy of the people protesting is so powerful, but then you think, ok well we HAVE this freedom, so how do we use it?! I think people talk a lot about wanting free- dom - but what will you do with that freedom? I’m always seeking freedom but sometimes I forget what the point is, freedom for freedom’s sake? Or is it actually the freedom to play and have fun with your friends!? That’s what this video is and was, having fun with my friends, playing and being free! One thing that really excites me is that my mom likes this video! The mom in the video is so worried, and all her son is doing is expressing himself and having fun. I dedicate this video to Moms who think they can’t go out and party and let go and be funky and have fun but actually would have a great time if they did.”
