    Hurray for the Riff Raff (aka Alynda Segarra) shares a live video for "Rosemary Tears," from their 2022 Nonesuch debut, LIFE ON EARTH. Segarra describes the track as: “A reflection on my experience with time and its passing. The realization that I cannot go back and fix what has been broken. Experiencing memory and time as something that loops on forever beside me, always feeling like the past is not far behind and that it is possible to jump back in. Mourning.” The video was filmed live in concert at Point Éphémère in Paris in September 2022.

    Hurray for the Riff Raff (aka Alynda Segarra's) “PIERCED ARROWS,” from their 2022 Nonesuch debut, LIFE ON EARTH. Segarra calls “Pierced Arrows,” “A heartbreak song, lost in the realm of memory. Being stuck in the past, and finding the rapidly changing world uncanny and bizarre. Trying to outrun trauma. Finding a meeting place between tough and tender. Memory replaying inside/beside you, triggering fight or flight responses.” The video is designed, directed, and edited by Lucia Honey.

Protection prayer for us all as we live in uncertain and violent times. Manifesting blessings into reality. Posing the question that perhaps the future could be joyous as well as terrifying?” The video, directed by Segarra, is a collection of historical footage of the Bomba and Plena traditions in Puerto Rico, clips Segarra shot on a hand-held camcorder during lockdown, recording studio footage captured by Joshua Shoemaker, and visuals of outer space from NASA.
