PREMIERE: LA Based Desert Sparrow Share New Video For “Drive”

Sydney raised, LA based indie rock duo, Desert Sparrow, has returned with the release of their music video for their single “Drive,” a very intimate sneak peek into what you can expect on a live performance by the band.

On the video, the duo says: “Drive is about freedom & escape, a constant search for meaning and an identity—being an outsider and trying to find your place in the world.”

“The concept for the music video was to have a female skateboarder as the lead role. Lucy Osinski (in real life) is the founder of a Venice Beach skate crew called GRLSWIRL ( which is a modern-retro all female community focused on bringing femininity to a male dominated skate scene. We love this concept because it’s about breaking stereotypes and building a community.

The storyline in the video deals with everyday problems people go through. Lucy is having a rough day with her job, her mom, her boyfriend; however, she keeps going. She simply finds peace & solace through skateboarding and listening to music. It’s about the importance of finding those small things in life to make you happy.”

If you’re unfamiliar, Kylie Adams and Dave Carreno began their musical journey together by playing covers at local open mics in 2013 before forming their own creative path into songwriting. Their main artistic influences are 60’s rock n roll, folk, spaghetti western, and surf. The result is a narrative experience which paints images of solitude, hardship and perseverance on backgrounds of desert roads and California coastlines. Desert Sparrow draws inspiration from bands such as Fleetwood Mac, Florence and the Machine, BRMC, and Angus & Julia Stone.
