Nettwerk Records is excited to announce the signing of British singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Luke Sital-Singh to its label roster. Luke joins Nettwerk’s expanding label roster that includes artists like Passenger, Old Sea Brigade, Aisha Badru, SYML, Wild Rivers, and Joshua Radin.
Today, the now LA-based creative releases “Blind Missiles,” the first track from his forthcoming album (details TBA) and follow-up to his acclaimed EP collaboration with a fellow artist (and labelmate) Old Sea Brigade, All The Ways You Sing In The Dark. Co-written with fellow British singer-songwriter Dan Croll, the indie-folk track is about isolation and looking for empathy in spaces of conflict.
Luke had this to say about the track: “it is a song about polarization, feeling tired with the constant attacks from one group to another and the lack of empathy and understanding, feeling at odds with the world around me, as a Brit living in the US feeling overwhelmed and disconnected from US politics, confused as to where I fit in the picture.”
The official music video is directed by Sacramento-area documentary-film director, writer, and cinematographer Joey Katches. The video is filmed in the NorCal towns of Auburn and Colfax, communities heavily impacted by the recent and devastating River Fire wildfire. “I live in Auburn, and there were some evacuations in Auburn. The fire destroyed a lot of land and houses in Colfax, where my folks live. Their house was burned down within 40 minutes of the fire starting,” says Joey. Adding, “As human beings, we are inherently built for relationships. The concept came from the idea of life being fragile. At times people come along to help one another, yet we fire ‘blind missiles’ at one another to tear each other down. But we didn’t want it all doom and gloom. There’s a glimmer of hope with Maisey [an incredibly adorable dog]. The video is about the fallout of broken relationships. Without companionship, life is lonely and painful.”
