Last week saw a career milestone moment for the band who hails from Portland, by way of Wasilla, Alaska, as they won the GRAMMY for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for their 2x-Platinum certified single “Feel It Still,” over some of the biggest songs from the biggest artists including Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito (Remix)” featuring Justin Bieber, The Chainsmokers & Coldplay’s “Something Just Like This,” Zedd & Alessia Cara’s “Stay” and Imagine Dragons’ “Thunder.”
In addition to their GRAMMY win, Portugal. The Man were among the week’s busiest and most in-demand artists. The self-proclaimed “Lords of Portland” were all over New York City appearing at the star-studded 2018 MusiCares Person of the Year tribute to Fleetwood Mac at Radio City Music Hall, where they performed “I’m So Afraid,” as well as The Roots’ annual Jam Sessions extravaganza.
Meanwhile, “Live In The Moment” – the next single from their eighth studio album, WOODSTOCK – is currently spending its third consecutive week overall atop the Triple A Radio chart. The track is joined by a creative companion visual – directed by Aaron Brown for Portland, OR’s W+K Productions – is streaming now via YouTube. The band is set to kick off a flurry of television performances of “Live In The Moment” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday, February 20th (check local listings.) Additional appearances to be announced in the coming weeks.
They’ve also just introduced a new video for “Keep On.” The video is directed by multi-disciplinary artist Paulin Rogues who comes from a practice of drawing and writing comics. His narrative works have been curated at Ars Electronica, the Musuem of Modern Art of Portland, Superchief Gallery New York and Superchief Gallery in Los Angeles. “’Keep On’ is a song of hope, to always go further and never surrender. The start of the video illustrates a lonely teenager who is obsessed with others’ perception of her. By the end she eventually grows to accept herself and fully experience the true essence of self-love,” says Rogues. Watch now: https://lnk.to/keeponvidPR.
