Irish singer-songwriter Robb Murphy has released his new single 'Laughing At The Sky' today, June 28.
Writing about the song, Robb says: "‘Laughing at the Sky’ is a hopeful song with a hint of country". He sings about what initially appears to be a lost, heartbroken old man, but who in fact he is very content with his simple minimalistic lifestyle. ‘Oh there’s a lot of life in the old boy yet’ is the line that repeats in the chorus, emphasising that no matter what age you are or what life circumstances you are in, there is always hope and more life to come regardless what misfortunes you may have been dealt.
The accompanying video was shot in the Bardenas Reales Desert in Spain and narrates this story in the form of a lonesome cowboy making his journey towards Castil de Terra, a famous rock formation in Navarra, in Northern Spain. Local filmmaker David McGarvey from Firefly Films shot and directed the music video.
