“Laika Upe” releases video for the single “Listen To The Way That I Breathe”

The single  “Listen To The Way That I Breathe” is selected for the international song competition "Eurovision 2019" Pre-Selection show "Supernova 2019" semi-finals.

The director of the video is Guntis Spridzāns. The video was shoot and edited by Ivars Utināns.

The story of a video (and song) is about the loneliness, struggle and the inner demons of a musician, looking for a support from the others and a hope in general. Every upcoming performance is an emotional challenge for a musician, but the band is always there for the support.

The video was shoot in different places including “K.K. fon Stricka villa”, “Buratino theater”, “GM Pool”,” Ziemeļblāzma Castle”.

“The shooting of a video was quite challenging because you really had to get over yourself emotionally and physically. First, we had to film in a cold weather outside. After that we had to film under the water. With the lack of sleep from the previous night's gig, that really did took an energy from us” Guntis recalls.

Laika Upe is a five - piece band from Riga, Latvia. Their uniqueness and sound can be found both in their records and in their energetic live performances that no listener can ignore.
