Last September, experimental music artist tiedye ky released his debut album Baby Blue and the Super Moon, which featured fan-favorite tracks including “Never Cage a Butterfly” and “Lunar Girl.” Among the 12-tracks featured on the album is his standout single, “Living Right Now,” which has been brought back to the forefront with an accompanying visual and launch of a new initiative. Check out the visual below:
Paying tribute to one of his dear friends who passed away – Matthew “Pipus” Larsen – tiedye ky pays tribute to his friend with shots from his friend’s hometown of Philadelphia via nostalgic video filmed on a Super 8 camera. The initiative, titled the Pipus Forever Mural Project, “is inspired by the contributions and impact that he had on the local Philadelphia community.” To raise awareness and funding for the project, tiedye ky has launched a GoFundme that can be accessed here.
“The “Livin’ Right Now” music video is a tribute to my late homie Pipus. […] When I got home from his funeral, I wallowed in front of my computer for a bit before writing easily one of my favorite songs ever in a single session. From start to finish, I spilled my emotions in one swift motion. Matt and Kenny, I love you. Thank you for everything.”
