Wrapping up our premiere Monday, we are teaming up with Lavoy for the cinematic new music video for “Have It All.”
About the song, Lavoy comments:
“Have It All is a song that came from a precise life-changing paradigm when I found out that the people and relationships I was navigating maybe wanted to be shown love and be loved by way of their own experiences and discoveries and the gems that have come from that, rather than romanticized ideals about what love is supposed to be. I started loving the way that others wanted to be loved and I let them know how I wanted to be loved. That’s the basis for the song but I think there’s more to be discovered there and to strive to love un-selfishly.”
The question to be answered seems to be a longing for relationship and for the word known as a heavy taunting to those whose cup has been poured into but never overflowing and sipped but never swallowed. The question is how is that good word “love” put to great use and how is it brought to the surface so that it can be enjoyed by the one for whom our hearts beat? When Have It All was written it was sure to be comprised in such a way that the listener could find rest in knowing they have what is needed and that the only real problem to be overcome is to transform from ones self-serving nature to a kind of selfless love that thinks only of how the other wants to be loved instead of what is thought to be the standard. Lavoy’s puts to use the advisory style of writing here and attempts to show others that they are the focal point of the word and they are the answer to the question. To love un-selfishly is the great golden goose and one can only put their eyes on it once they have miss-stepped and seen the standard for what it is.
After 6x Grammy nominated producer/Mixer Tony Hoffer (Griswolds, Depeche Mode, M83, Fitz and The Tantrums, Phoenix, Etc.) saw Lavoy play live in Alaska and insisted on working with the band, they started releasing their tantalizing sound and visuals amidst touring and an EP produced by Tony Hoffer and have continued to shake up the indie/pop scene along the way. The long time Alaskans have since begun work on their second EP due for release later on this year and produced by Casey Bates (INXS, Pierce The Veil, Portugal. The Man).
