“Hold Me In Your Mind” by Living Hour
Living Hour have released a new video for “Hold Me In Your Mind” from director Ryan Steel and cinematographer Jesse De Rocquigney. The track is about “the mystery of connectivity,” says vocalist Sam Sarty. “Human to human and all the inner biological electricity involved, human to technology to human and the electricity involved there. Also about everything else in between that we cannot perceive that’s at work, like when you think about someone out of nowhere so deeply and intensely while driving, and get a text from them, or see them walking down the street.”
“A brain worm song that starts as you’re walking home from a date’s house. A meditation on being perceived by people and technology. Feeling your small part in the massive web that is an interconnected ecosystem. You and your date, you and your cell phone, you and yourself, moving across the bridge. The psychic coincidences of thinking of someone while driving so deeply and intensely, then getting a text from them or seeing them cross the street. Thinking hard about someone, hoping your thoughts will affect the person you are thinking so they also think about you. Psychic connection.”
Of the video Sarty says, “first frost, walking around, remembering what it feels like again. Meditation on cars and security cameras, buildings and their window materials as it gets dark at 5pm. Finding the light, still walking and letting the loops inside my mind play out while staring into car head beams. Ryan and Jesse came along with me to shoot in some places around Winnipeg, reflection of the Red River, an old high school football field, buildings around. We collaborated on how the shots would look, a solo person enduring the day as it fades out into passing cars, floating away on one beam of light to the next.”
Living Hour includes Gilad Carroll (Guitar/Vocals), Adam Soloway (Guitar/Vocals), and Sam Sarty (Bassist/Keyboardist/Vocalist), who’ve been writing together since 2014, and Brett Ticzon (Bass/Keys/Drums), who joined the band in 2018. On Someday Is Today, the band collaborated with a variety of drummer friends including Jason Tait (The Weakerthans, Bahamas, Broken Social Scene). The group’s sound is fleshed out further with the help of album’s three producers: Melina Duterte (Jay Som, Bachelor, Chastity Belt), Jonathan Schenke (Parquet Courts, Snail Mail, The Drums), and Samur Khouja (Cate le Bon, Deerhunter, Regina Spektor).
