The music video was filmed live at Soundsplash Festival, Hamilton in January 2022 by Mumu Moore and Sa Li.
“This music video was filmed at Soundsplash 2022, our last live gig before Covid stopped us in our tracks - so it captures a pretty special moment in time.
The energy exchange between the band and the audience was such a vibe! We cannot wait to be back performing with a crowd, and are super excited to play our new songs.
This music video is about sharing that vibe of live music and a celebration of ‘Shaka’ and NZ Music Month.
This is for 'the rockers who've been skanking all along'! We hope you enjoy. “ - LTA lead singer Jesse Biddle.
‘Shaka’ the first new single from the bands forthcoming EP ‘Lost & Found’.
‘Shaka’ speaks of sending messages of positivity and getting rid of negative rhetoric, as well as connections to the bands Pacific roots and love of surfing. LTAshare “The meaning of the song can be linked back to our Hawaiian brothers and sisters who use the ‘Shaka’ hand signal as simply a greeting or more deeply, the bringing together of the mind and spirit to project positive vibes. There are many common links between Māori and Hawaiian people and furthermore links between the surfing culture of Hawaii and Raglan which is how this song came about.”
