San Diego’s Strawberry Moons have just released a new video for their new single, “Love in the Time of Virus.” It’s a lush and romantic ballad with a psychedelic touch, reflective on the surreal and insular last year that everyone went through. The video is likewise intimate, showcasing the band inside of a dark space, performing to no one in particular—a feeling that probably feels familiar to most bands right now.
Songwriter/keyboardist Will A Lerner says in a statement, “When the lockdown started, I, like many people, went on long walks everyday. It was strange seeing normally busy streets quieter: less cars, businesses closed, people avoiding each other. It’s what needed to happen, but I kept thinking that it wouldn’t take much for things to spiral out of control.”
