Not Not by The Silver Lake Chorus and Lucius
Not Not by The Silver Lake Chorus was composed by the indie pop band Lucius specifically for TSLC. TSLC are well known for transforming original indie music into beautiful choral pieces of art. Here’s a bit about how the song was composed from the press release:
In “Not Not,” written for the the chorus by indie pop band Lucius, the chorus opted to follow the songwriters’ lead, singing in perfectly aligned unison, as Lucius’s frontwomen Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig are known to do, until the harmonies delicately split then build to a powerful and affecting crescendo. The recurrent phrase “none of this means nothing at all” swells alongside soprano Jett Kwong Kelly’s solitary and evocative guzheng accompaniment, and by the song’s end, the lyrics’ double negative implications leave us with a cleansing sense of loss and clarity.
What an interesting collaboration! I hadn’t heard of the band Lucius prior to this but after a quick spin through Spotify I can see how TSLC has kept to the spirit of the band while creating their own unique performance of the song. Not Not is a breath of fresh air with a beautiful arrangement. You can watch the equally beautiful, thought out video for Not Not below.
