WATCH // Lia Ices Shares Video For “Thousand Eyes”, Includes Footage From Bollywood’s ‘Dil Se’, Tour With Phantogram Continues

From Lia-

For me, this scene from Dil Se acts as a visual metaphor for the same sentiments that inspired the song “Thousand Eyes”; We move together against internal and external rhythms, we fly through nature completely entwined with technology and machines (in this video it’s the train). We go on go on go on…”

Lia Ices has shared a new video for her track “Thousand Eyes” from her latest album ‘Ices’. The video, edited by Dougal Henken, pairs the song with a scene from the 1998 Bollywood classic Dil Se (translation: From The Heart). Watch the video above or on Lia’s Youtube Channel. If you’ve yet to see her live, Lia is currently in the midst of a national tour with Phantogram. Full dates and ticket links after the jump.

WATCH // Lia Ices Shares New Video For “Higher”, Expands Tour Dates, New Album ‘Ices’ Out Sept. 16.

Only three weeks away from her sophomore album, Ices, Lia Ices shares the video for her newest single “Higher“, via Paper. The video, directed by Lia, was shot cruising/exploring around Jamaica by film maker Storm Saulter (Better Mus’ Come) with additional camera work by Bryan Ling and Andrew Marianai. Watch the video above or on Youtube / Vevo.

From Lia -
“The making of this album continuously took us out of our familiar world. During our time in jamaica we found a levity and openness we tapped into – an energy that is at the core of the song, and of this whole album. We just had fun. When you can be limitless with your experiences, give into other cultures, sounds, and people, the more you actually feel like yourself.”

Lia has a few dates peppered around September before going on tour with Phantogram. Full dates are below.
