Crystal Fighters have unveiled the video for their single ‘Lay Low.
‘Lay Low’ is a dedication to the band’s drummer Andrea Marongiu who sadly passed away two years ago. It’s taken from the band’s album, Everything Is My Family, which is out now via Play It Again Sam.
Speaking about the album, guitarist Graham Dickson said: “This song is about looking after your friends and family; it’s about taking the time to try and leave a positive impact on earth every day, as if it’s your last. It’s about remembering to hug and high five your friends every time you see them, and to take the time to appreciate every moment we are given here on this beautiful planet.
“With this song we pay homage to the miracle of the known, the mystery of the unknown, and our limited time within it. We couldn’t be happier to release this video today, with everything going on in the world right now, and hope it brings you joy and inspiration.”
Crystal Fighters have set up a foundation in Andrea’s name, ‘The Andrea Marongiu Drumming Bursary’, and fans have already donated over £11,000. Director Wayne McCauslin has donated six puppets used in the video to be sold through the band’s merch store, with all donations to go to The Eternal Beat.
