The beautiful new video for Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros’ track “All Wash Out” and the touching and tragic story that goes along with its creation have been everywhere on the internet these past couple of days so we thought we’d share as well.

The video was directed by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros fan Sophie Glaser – a letter from her sister Luna accompanying the video really captures her story best:

“Dear Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

Thank you for your incredible music. I first heard your songs, when my sweet sister Sophie entered a music video contest producing a video for your song: “All Wash Out”. The combination of your beautiful music and her great talent has left an eternal imprint on my mind.

Sophie, my little sister was just 20 when she entered the contest. This Sunday we played the video at her memorial service. She passed away recently during an exchange semester in Prague. She suffered from a brain hemorrhage and just never woke up from her sleep one night.

I find the description (which went along with her video); “A girl goes on a journey to wash away what’s behind her leading to her rebirth” incredibly moving as she would have no idea that she would soon leave this earth. Sophie was not meant to act in the video, but due to incredible karmic circumstances, the actress who was supposed to participate was prevented to come (last minute) and Sophie stepped in. Both acting and directing.

It gives indescribable joy and comfort to be able to turn to this video, during this period of grieving and to know that it will stay with us. She spread such an unbelievable amount of joy and light during her — much too short — life. And has left the world forever richer.

I realize that it is a long shot, but it would mean very, very much to us if there were any way you would be able to help share this last memory of Sophie.

In any case, I truly thank you for having been a catalyst in Soph leaving the world this beautiful video.

I apologize that my English is not sufficient to express my emotions (I am from Denmark), but I hope it has made sense.

Thank you again, Luna.”
