Disco Shrine: Up In The Air – video of the day

LA’s Jessica Delijani AKA Disco Shrine has a stunning new single out, and it’s the first of many promised! She explains ‘Up In The Air’:

This song is about my parents immigrating to America from Iran after escaping the Iranian revolution in the 70’s. “Up in the air” paints a picture of them literally up in the air on their plane ride over to America, leaving the past behind and looking towards their new future. It’s also symbolic of their whole lives suddenly being up in the air, uncertain, and not knowing what to expect at all.  It’s more so in my mothers perspective and the strength she had to leave her whole life behind to bring a better life for her children and family.
