Illiterate Light Release Frenzied Video For “Growin’ Down”
Adopted Richmonders Illiterate Light have released the music video for their charging new single, “Growin’ Down.” The video comes on the heels of a busy summer for the alt-rock duo that saw the release of memorable sessions with RVATRACK and Good Day RVA, as well as an earlier official single release of the song “Better Than I Used To.”
The creative video for “Growin’ Down” sees the Harrisonburg duo intimately framed by the camera with both emotive expression and detached stoicism, before moving to a more whimsical setting that sees the band perform on guitars and drums supported by loose strings dangling from the short ceiling of their cramped performing space.
The song itself is a heartfelt folk plea that quickly descends into a resounding southern rock jam before settling on a relaxed country swing to close out the tune. Moving and parabolic, the song’s titular refrain of “I’ve been growin down / I’m growin down / I’m growin down” is a melodic barrage that could properly close down even the more riotous concerts available in and out of town.
Illiterate Light will be travelling through a handful of cities from Virginia to Alabama over the next month and a half, before coming back to Richmond on November 24th, opening for J Roddy Walston And The Business at The Broadberry.
