With his futuristic new concept record 2077 described as a ‘must-have’ album for 2016 by Muzic.net.nz, Diaz Grimm is proud to release his new single and accompanying video, Sinse 7.
Lauded by NZ Herald as being “a piece of nonsensical brilliance”, Grimm’s trademark relatable lyrics and optimism shine in Sinse 7, a song told from the perspective of a seven year old, full of all the imagination that comes from the mind of a child.
Wanting to include a child’s input through the creative process of the song, Sinse 7 features the vocal talent of seven year old KT, expressing her wish to visit space and linking back to the overarching sci-fi theme of 2077.
A Cambridge local, born and raised in the town and returning to record the album in his home studio, Diaz revisited his old stomping grounds of Leamington Primary School to shoot the video. The most humbling experience of his life to date, the artist was overwhelmed by their faith and belief in their own bright futures.
“It seems laughable to think about children running the world but in the long term all of the children are going to run the world. The enthusiasm for the smaller things which us adults tend to lose as other issues taking charge, was inspiring to say the least.”
|Asking them to dress up as whatever they would like to be when they grew up, the kids took on an incredible range of possible future occupations, driving home that while the dreams are all theirs, the task for preparing our children as much as possible for the world they will inherit falls to us.
Sinse 7 is the second single from Diaz Grimm’s recently released sophomore solo album, 2077.
