The very mighty Crystal Fighters have released their official video for their new track ‘Lay Low’ which is another one of their stellar offerings from their current album Everything Is My Family, which is out now.
The band have been announced as headliners for Secret Garden Party 2017.
The single is a dedication to the band’s drummer ‘Andrea Marongiu’ who sadly passed away two years ago. The band have set up a foundation in Andrea’s name ‘The Andrea Marongiu Drumming Bursary’, fans have already donated over £11k. The animated video is a colourful and heartwarming adaptation of life, friendship and universal connection.
Lay Low was inspired by the passing of our brother and drummer, Andrea Marongiu, and the main singalong came from an impromptu backstage chant, at one of our final shows together. Andrea brought Crystal Fighters alive when he joined the family with his phenomenally skillful drumming, and immeasurably lifted the spirit of the band, and whoever crossed his path, as one of the kindest and most charismatic gentlemen out there.
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.
