Lea Porcelain – Loose Life
“Loose Life” by LEA PORCELAIN taken from their debut album “”HYMNS TO THE NIGHT””
The song recalls the feeling of life in a big city that comes apart. Originally recorded in London, the band decided to use this high-quality footage of mostly unreleased and unseen shots of Berlin that question the values of a big city life nowadays and shows the consequences of war, fear and media-controlled minds.
It is meant to recall and provoke a feeling of understanding on how important it is to keep the peace in our everyday lives and politics towards other nations.
Because after the surrender in May 1945 nearly all major cities in Germany were destroyed. And this film shows color photographs of Berlin and Potsdam in the summer of 1945: air photographs of the fallen houses of which only the facades are still left, rubble, women who carry the debris away as they begin with reconstruction before the return of their men.
A life that became loose, starting all over from zero.
