WATCH: The Lark and the Loon, ‘Up on a Cloud’

Aug 19, 2016

WATCH: The Lark and the Loon, 'Up on a Cloud'

Artist: The Lark and the Loon
Hometown: Eureka Springs, AR
Song: "Up on a Cloud"
Album: Songbirds and Fog

In Their Words: "'Up on a Cloud' is about that moment someone strikes you and you feel the need to connect. Of course, sometimes, that moment doesn’t come at a convenient time, and your desires can make you feel worlds away from one another. Longing doesn't always have to be a tragic thing, though. We've found it often gives us something to look forward to.

Living without stable internet in our cabin-style home, we’ve become more reliant on our record player than ever before. Digging through some old records, we started to notice the quirky nature of jazz duets sung by Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, and the like. It’s probably safe to say the quirky nature has influenced us quite a bit — at least on this song — and our overlapping harmony parts have become a signature sound and style of our writing. Coupled with Peter Steineck's creative animation, our music and his visuals create a world of their own. Wistful and sentimental, the video creates a recollection of our influential icons." — Jeff Rolfzen and Rocky Steen-Rolfzen
