The tour also follows the release of their latest single and the music video for, “Living in a Paradise” which features Jeremy Loops on Harmonica. Loops has been a great supporter of Grassy Spark and selected the 7-piece band as musical ambassadors for Greenpop’s Trees for Zambia initiative in mid-2014.
Filming of the music video for “Living in a Paradise” also took place during their trip to Zambia and at last year’s Oppikoppi festival. Watch the Music video for “Living in a Paradise” below:
“We had the time of our lives while filming the video and so the script was written by our experiences. We’re very grateful that Tash Montlake was there to capture the ride.” When asked about the meaning of the song, front man Yanick Bathfield comments, “The song is a memory, a philosophy and a reminder.”
Grassy Spark formed in 2012 and is a unique fusion of Ska-blend with multiple genres, where the end product is pure elation. Their beauty lies in the relevance and authenticity of each live show as they go out their way to appease and connect with their crowd. The “Blend” is inclusive of each member’s personality – the quirks, the ups, the downs – as well as being grateful for and learning from one another.
