New Video from Lia Ices for “Grown Unknown”

 

Today in an exclusive premiere with Pitchfork TV, we are pleased to present the music video for the title song of Lia Ices’ tremendous Jagjaguwar debut album, Grown Unknown.

Lia Ices’ video for “Grown Unknown” is a visual performance diary documenting modern dancer Ruby MacDougall’s three week voyage across the Pacific from Long Beach, California to Shanghai, China. The song “Grown Unknown” is about resisting our tendency to control and confine our desires; it celebrates the discovery of a personal unknown. Ruby’s dance document aligns with Lia’s song in a most poignant way: confined to a ship in the middle of the massive ocean, she uses dance as a means to express herself amidst extreme newness. For when we surrender to our wild, untamed energies and venture into the unknown, we expose ourselves to personal revelation. The opening lines of the song set the stage for Ruby’s exploratory dance: “I can’t live on a solitary stem, when there’s open land and warm wind.” The footage was shot from a laptop camera, and edited by Joanna Bovay (who also edited Lia’s video for “Half Life”).
