The music video for ‘Loaded’ is not only artistically nostalgic, but it also depicts the time and place when Richey Rose and Lina Sophie met in the streets of New York’s Lower East Side in early 2019 and established Songs for Sabotage.
Songs for Sabotage are among those musicians who make the best use of all the options we have. They made the right decision to shoot this video on analog gear. Seeing this gives you a different kind of feeling than just watching another music video on YouTube.
These melodies create a real atmosphere in which you can live for 4 minutes or even for the rest of your day. In a way, this song could be the soundtrack of your life right now, and that’s how it should be. Put on your headphones and hit the streets!
“Loaded” was written last summer with Blood Handsome, with whom Richey Rose has crossed creative paths in recent years. They aren’t simply some random folks who chose to work together; they’ve known each other since high school, grew up in Lexington, Kentucky, and now live in Los Angeles.
The visual aesthetic in ‘Loaded’ video makes the music come to life, makes it special, and art really is about creating that feeling you can only find in the air. Lina Sophie immediately loved the lo-fi aesthetic and thought it would be the perfect visual direction for making this video. It was shot entirely on film and VHS, and edited by NYC artists All Rights Aint Reserved.
We think ‘Loaded’ is a great song, and it is now on RED Rock Magazine’s Top 10. Check out what’s new and see 5 Questions with Songs for Sabotage below.
