Grammy-nominated duo, Louis York, has released their latest single, "Headphones," which is available now wherever you find great music. The track, releasing through the group's label, Weirdo Workshop, reminds us all of the healing power of music and art. Over the past few years, the news cycle has been both informative and agonizing - we've experienced polarizing politics, social unrest and a gloabl pandemic. "Headphones" explores the power and healing qualities that unqiuely apply to music and the connective engery between sound and the human spirit, especially in the tough times.
"Life has been challenging for us and everyone we know, so music has been essential. It's been the only thing keeping us from going crazy," says the duo. "We want 'Headphones' to represent a song's ability to help during the darkest times. Right now, people should be paying close attention to their mental health so we're offering up a melody and a message that might heal someone the way music has been healing us."
Releasing alongside the track is the song's poignant music video directed by Aaron Greene. Louis York wanted to create a visual that captures the emotions that this song is all about. The concept was meant to illustrate the feelings of loneliness, despair and confusion followed by the comfort and freedom that great music brings out. The song and video are all about personal connection with music.
