A Little About the Video: Throughout the year of 2018 my dad retired early, moved to the remote Los Angeles locale of Shadow Hills, and lost his driver's license due to complications from early-onset Alzheimers disease. Many of the things he found pleasure in disappeared or were no longer available to him. This was my attempt to recreate and document that time in his life.
Though we started the production and concept of this video in Fall 2019, I now find it reminiscent of many of our lives during the COVID-19 pandemic: when we find ourselves struggling to survive and/or isolated from friends and social interaction, many of the good things that we experienced shut down or otherwise unavailable to us. We try to regain our sense of normalcy through any inkling of hope, routine, or fulfillment we can. My dad notes that for him, life remains much the same during the pandemic, though he still feels "off" in a way difficult to describe.
I hope you enjoy the video.
A Little About the Band:
ROXY GREEN is a moody Los Angeles Drama Queen writing introspective guitar-music. Described by some as "Sad 70's Power-Pop", others as "Sleepy Car-Seat Headrest", and a special select few as similar to "Beck screaming at people on the bus with a guitar", empathy is the cornerstone of Roxy Green's music, and they frequently write and sing with others' perspectives in mind.
