Video Premiere: The Living Strange, "Losing It"

The Living Strange is a Brooklyn based alternative rock band founded by Elijah Sokolow. The Living Strange’s music combines the guitar-driven hard rock of artists like Queens of the Stone Age and Rage Against the Machine with the electronic-indie atmosphere of artists like Tame Impala and St Vincent. Sokolow is the sole songwriter of the project and the studio recordings compromise of him overdubbing all instruments other than drums, which are played by Ben Shafrir. Having initially formed during high school in Los Angeles in 2014, The Living Strange began gigging consistently across the west coast. After several self-released EPs, tours across the US, and lineup changes, the band found a new home in Brooklyn, New York. As a touring act, the band consists of Sokolow (vocals, guitar), Ben Shafrir (drums), Miles Blue Spruce (bass), and Nico Sleator (synthesizer).
Their recent LP, Gunk, marks the first professionally recorded full -length release from The Living Strange. The topics of the songs range from relationships to cultural critiques, as well as coping with a loved one’s self-destruction. Each song is a different angle of the band’s playful philosophy – to embrace ones inner freak and marvel at the bizarre circumstances that we all share. This message is most prevalent in the somewhat surrealist lyrical content.
Today, Ghettoblaster has the pleasure of sharing the band’s video for “Losing It.” This is what Sokolow had to say about it:

“To make this video, we just filmed my daily routine. It’s nothing out of the ordinary. That’s why we wanted to do it though. There’s something about capturing everyday life that shows how much substance could be appreciated in something as boring as brushing your hair in the morning.”
