You may not have heard of Planet L yet, but you’re about to, and you’ll be glad you did! The band is made up of six Leahy siblings, Adele, Gregory, Angus, Cecilia, Joseph, and Evelyn, who range from 14 years old to 7 years old. Now, I’m sure you have heard the name Leahy before, as the well-known folk music group of the same name is actually family to these young musicians, and although they state that they are proud of their families musical heritage, they are all about making their own original pop music. Today, we are happy to unveil the video for “Can’t You Feel The Rhythm” for this young Canadian band.
When asked about the video, the band shared,
“The music video for “Can’t You Feel The Rhythm” was an incredible experience that we’ll never forget. We shot the video in a local venue very close to our hometown and basically just threw a big party. We invited all of our friends, ordered a ton of pizza, and listened to some “great” music. Although it was a long eighteen hour day of shooting, we had a blast and didn’t want it to end. The director was amazing and has so many totally awesome ideas for the video. Highlights definitely included driving through a red light, seeing all our friends have so much fun, working with a really cool choreographer, and meeting all the people who spent many hours on and off set making this video look amazing. We can’t thank everyone enough for helping us make this experience so memorable and fun. We are so excited to now share with the world “Can’t You Feel The Rhythm”.”
Take a few moments and check out the video below, and while you’re at it, find out more about these siblings in our Five Questions With segment.
Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
Hey! We are Planet L. Six young musicians from Lakefield, Ontario. Though relatively new on the scene, we’ve been playing music together literally our whole lives (yep, we’re sibs) and we’re so excited to be releasing our own original pop music to the world.
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
Our music can be classified as original pop, but it is really a blend of many styles of music as we all have many different musical tastes. We believe that music is not just made for your ears, but should also be something you can feel and that is what we hope you experience when you listen to “Can’t You Feel the Rhythm.”
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
We are currently writing and recording a lot of new material and will be announcing a tour soon. Performing live is most exciting for us because of the energy and connection that can only be created and experienced with performing live. Song music and dance all find a place when Planet L takes the stage. We don’t just play to our fans, but rather invite them to the party taking place on stage.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
“Can’t You Feel the Rhythm” is the song we feel best represents us at this point. It’s a song that talks about finding good within yourself and sharing it with the world as inspiration. We love being positive and this song has a rhythm and melody that makes you want to dance and sing along. “Can’t You Feel the Rhythm” makes us realize music is a gift and we are excited to share it with you now.
