New Release & Video: Hurray For The Riff Raff – Living In The City

Hurray for the Riff Raff have unveiled the new video for Living in the City today, their latest single from the recently-released new record The Navigator

The vibrant video was filmed in New York City and brings to life the story of The Navigator, which frontwoman Alynda Segarra crafted around a character named Navita, a wandering soul and street kid at a crossroads of identity and ancestral weight. In the video, Navita (played by Segarra), is joined by her crew The Mariposas, a tight unit that weave through the streets and dance on a rooftop as the sun sets behind them

Take a look below…

Talking about the clip and director Giselle Bailey, Segarra states, “I wanted Giselle Bailey to direct ‘Living in the City’ because I am a fan of her work and I knew she understood that I wanted to represent the New York City I grew up with. Women taking over public space and making room for ourselves in a society where we are so often threatened into hiding. I learned at a young age that survival in the city for me meant having a crew. Together we could move through the concrete maze and create some sense of freedom”
