Sun Silva
It looks back towards simpler times...

Let's face facts: social media is one long bubble of anxiety.

From comparing yourself to others, to worrying about the amount of followers or likes you get, it can be a pretty formidable zone to operate in.

Yet it's also a key aspect of everyday life, something few of us live entirely without.

Sun Silva reflect on social media's impact on new single 'Blue Light', and find themselves yearning towards a simpler time.

The band's Oscar Gormley says, “‘Blue Light’ is about how social media dominates so many young people's lives. The song is about how this freaks me out and it reminisces on simpler times.”

Continuing about the video he says, “The desolate spaces and stark contrast of sea and land used in the filming of the video reflect on the ghostly feeling of being trapped by a digital ocean of constant social media.”
