Hurray For The Riff Raff’s Alynda Segarra will release her new album, The Navigator, in March, and today she debuted its newest single, the follow-up to “Rican Beach.” “Hungry Ghost” is accompanied by a gorgeous video, which shows the musician reveling in the moonlight at warehouse space in New Orleans. Segarra told The FADER that she made the clip in solidarity with safe spaces that have found themselves threatened following the tragic Oakland Ghost Ship fire.
“Hungry Ghost” captures the beauty of safe and queer DIY venues and parties… These sanctuaries will only become more important in these grave and uncertain times. Queerness is the future of our country and we, the future generation, are aiming for the freedom of gender fluidity and intersectional justice for all people. As artists and freethinkers we must care for each other and hold these safe spaces close to us. With those we lost in Oakland and Orlando in our hearts, this video is a love letter to all the queer people who are putting on intentional events that promote nights of safety, unity and freedom. Keep up the good work.
“Hungry Ghost” is a rebellious bit of pure rock n’ roll; watch the video below.
