Laika Upe release the single and video for “Listen To The Way That I Breathe”.

Latvian five piece group Laika Upe have released their single “Listen To The Way That I Breathe” and it’s been selected for the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest 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 and 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. Since the formation of the band in 2016, Laika Upe has released two singles, “Debess Puses” was released in the summer of 2018 and now “Listen To The Way That I Breathe”.
