Luke Sital-Singh – Los Angeles (Official Music Video)
‘Los Angeles’ is the beautiful new single from Luke Sital–Singh and the third to be taken from Sital–Singh’s new album ‘A Golden State’, which will be released on April 5. It is a song as warm and hazy as an LA morning, and writing it helped in Luke’s decision to relocate from Bristol to the city in 2019 with his wife, illustrator Hannah Cousins.
The song’s evocative video was filmed in Los Angeles and Weston-super-Mare, and was directed by Chris ‘MUG5’ Maguire.
“I had a choice to keep Weston-super-Mare as my local beach or change it to Malibu, California,” says Luke. “Tricky one! They could have flown me to LA for the video shoot, but I’m not Duran Duran. So I got the train to Weston and filmed my bits there.”
The music video was shot digitally in Weston-Super-Mare, England and on Super 8 film in Los Angeles, CA. Both locations were shot at the end of November 2017 and the video was edited and colored at the Riot HQ in Downtown Los Angeles. ‘A Golden State’ was produced by Tommy McLaughlin (Villagers, Soak), who also produced Luke’s last album, 2017’s ‘Time Is A Riddle’, and recorded in Portland’s Jackpot Studios, famously set up by Elliott Smith, where alumni include R.E.M., Stephen Malkmus, and The Decemberists.
