Breaking up is hard to do. Especially when that breakup is with a city that chews you up and spits you out. Lower Dens’ melodic single “To Die In L.A.” comes to terms with circumstances that aren’t working and lets “time turn the tide.”
The music video, directed by SSION’s Cody Critcheloe, features an aspiring starlet who loses herself while trying to make it in Tinseltown. A portrait of the woman serves as an effigy, dripping and catching a flame as the story escalates.
The single is off Lower Dens’ splendid new album Escape from Evil. If you dig “To Die In L.A.” then give the rest of the album a listen, including my personal favorites “Ondine,” “Quo Vadis,” and “Non Grata.”
