Lettuce Unveils ‘Silence Is Golden’ Video
Lettuce shared the video for “Silence Is Golden.” The instrumental track appears on the band’s 2020 album, Resonate.
“With this video, we want to take you on a visually stunning, colorful journey into a fantastic storybook-like world that invokes peace and inspires creativity,” guitarist Adam Smirnoff said in a statement. “We want to make the connection resonate between ourselves, nature, and the spirit that binds us all together. Lett us present, ‘Silence is Golden.’”
Lettuce enlisted the help of a team at Black Baloon Media (Neil Young, My Chemical Romance) consisting of director Brad Strickman, producer Shane Strickman and illustrator Carolyn Arcabascio. Images from the video will also find their way onto coloring book pages.
“Working on the art, it was amazing to me how Lettuce’s music already felt so visual,” Arcabascio revealed. “You can just imagine the colors as the song goes from dreamy and trance-like to energetic and explosive. A total dream project for an illustrator.”
“We really enjoyed bringing this video to life for Lettuce and their management team,” Brad Strickman added. “The song has such a great vibe and, right from the beginning, we loved their concept of nature and music connecting us all.”
Lettuce drummer Adam Deitch also spoke about the video:
The connection of nature to music is essential to understand. The sound of the leaves swaying in the soft breeze along with the crickets and birds singing, can be very inspiring. This song represents a quiet place that resides in all of our minds that can bring peace to our souls. Lettuce meditate to the golden silence.
