WATCH: Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeros – ‘All Wash Out’
Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeros‘s latest, All Wash Out, is one hell of a tear-jerker. It was originally shot by 20-year-old Danish fan Sophia Glaser for a music video competition, before she tragically passed away in her sleep after suffering a brain haemorrhage.
Sophia’s sister Luna screened the clip at her memorial service before sending the video to Sharpe and company, who chose to release it as their official video. Luna says Sophia was never meant to act in the video, but in a twist of fate, stepped in when the original actor pulled out.
“It gives indescribable joy and comfort to be able to turn to this video, during this period of grieving and to know that it will stay with us. She spread such an unbelievable amount of joy and light during her – much too short – life.”
You can read Luna’s full letter to the band on the All Wash Out YouTube page. Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeros will be heading to Australia this April for Bluesfest, as well as sideshows in Sydney and Melbourne.
