Russia’s LOUNA Teams Up with VEVO to Release Eye-Opening New Music Video for ‘Up There.’

Female-fronted Russian hard rockers LOUNA are proud to team up with VEVO, the world's leading all-premium music video and entertainment platform, to bring fans their brand new, eye-opening music video for the track 'Up There', cut from their most recent full-length release, Behind a Mask. The music video is directed by Svyatoslav Podgaevsky with STG Cinema. Take a look at the video here: LOUNA is the first ever Russian rock band to have a VEVO channel.

'Up There' is intended to enlighten the listener, inviting them to question their surroundings and society. The lyrics of the track mirror the imagery in the video—people of all classes, ages and backgrounds—staring at the sky while nothing but rain pours down on them. People just waiting for a sign, a change, an answer—looking to the clouded sky for help, for light. But sadly, there is no answer. No one there to answer their calls and their cries. The people dream of a better day, but there is no end in sight to the constant oppression, violence, manipulation and deceit being fed to them by those who wish to control them.

This message is clearly conveyed in the lyrics to 'Up There', which perfectly describe the bleak, yet hopeful images portrayed in the music video.

"When we look up there prison walls feel cold
From this faceless fear silence all we're told
Dreams of golden streets slowly tear at me
There has got to be something else somewhere
We want to believe.

So we look up there
For the millionth year
A whispered cry, a whispered lie
So we look up there
But now I know why unfortunately there is nothing there
There is no one there."
