Lo-Fi post pop outfit Love Parade HK shares a video for their new single, Possession Street, serving as a love letter to a new home across the globe. The creative force behind the band, Xavier Alexander, is a longtime veteran of Miami’s indie rock scene as a co-founding member of the band Modernage.
Xavier spent the summer of June 2019 absorbing the tinderbox atmosphere of the Hong Kong protests and drawing inspiration from street-art in the bohemian neighborhood of Sheung Wan. Alexander recorded the track in Autumn 2019. Moving away from the darker melancholic tone of his recent work with Modernage, Alexander started delving into a lo-fi indie-pop aesthetic. Alexander recently joined forces with Freddy M. from Shotgun Politics to create a live show.
Possession Street is a deeply personal track about relationship failure, written in the context of a city erupting in protests. The video features some of the streets he walks and street art he sees every day. The video, shot by Alexander on an iPhone 5, is meant to show a side of the city that isn’t often seen in Western media, with the Sheung Wan street art and park life on display.
Watch the video below, featuring art by Lousy, Xeme, Victoriano, Zlism, Caratoes, Shida, Alex Senna, Vayeda Bros, SMD, Swoon, Fino & Yunus, Flaco Luna.
