“Hi guys, we hope you’ll have a better quarantine time listening to our new song!” That’s the message from the women of Hurricane, who have released an intense music video for their song “Roll the Dice”.
Ivana, Ksenia and Sanja are using their new single to remind people to stay at home to protect themselves and others. They’re also sending words of encouragement to all those heroes helping slow the spread of coronavirus.
The video starts with the following text.
“Dedicated to all brave doctors and medical staff, policemen and women, to our military who keep us, our children and elders safe, to all heroes with no capes. For those on the front line, leaving the satefy of their homes, so we would not.
“For all of us staying home, and for those who could not. For all of us awaiting for the first rays of summer. In loving memory of all unfortunate casualties.”
“Roll the Dice” — Hurricane’s song for frontline medical staff
Lyrically the song seems to have little to do with the ongoing pandemic. Indeed, the women seem to be calling on a man to take a chance on love. “There’s a mystery about you, got a vibe I can’t recall,” they sing. “You’re making me want to know all the tricks up your sleeve, all the things that you need.” They also offer this person a chance to “get lucky.”
But no matter. The breezy song — which feels like a gentle Latin breeze — assumes a different aura when you pair it with the visuals. The singers, who are currently staying at home and away from one another, have filmed selfie videos of them performing the song — sometimes with safety masks.
This footage is interspersed with images of empty scenes in Serbia — abandoned malls, parks with no children, an airport with no cars and rolling luggage. We also see pharmacists wearing protective equipment, delivery men passing important goods, and plenty of flags to remind the world we’re in this together.
