Canadian new wave icons, the Spoons have released a video for their newest single, “Landing Lights”.
Members Gord Deppe and Sandy Horne’s sentiments stretch two ways, but first and foremost to medical professionals and their ongoing efforts in the face of COVID-19.
“We wanted to create a video that reaches out to all of the healthcare workers during this scary time,” Deppe says. “We wanted to thank them, and let them know how grateful we — and the world are — for risking their lives every day for us.”
The dedication doesn’t stop there for the band; they’re quick to place importance on those also on the frontlines, albeit in a different way. “This video also goes out to those who are fighting for their lives, have lost their lives, and — of course — those ‘staying home’ to save many lives.
“We hope you find it an uplifting, encouraging video of faith, hope, and staying positive and strong during this time.”
