Jack River unveils another beautiful, WA-shot video clip for new single Fault Line
She heads out on an Australian tour early next year, after playing Perth next weekend.
It was about six months ago when Jack River gifted us the Matt Sav-directed video clip for Fool's Gold, and at the time we proclaimed it as something of an arrival for the previously somewhat elusive artist. Well if that was her arrival, Fault Line is the cementation of her status in Australian music. And the video, once again directed by Sav, also indicates an excellent creative partnership that we hopes continue for at least one more video to make a tidy trilogy. As with a lot of great pop music, the themes delve into something a little bit deeper, as River tells: "I was deep in a really dark time in my world, I wanted to capture the fragility of walking around in your mind in the dark, and then exploding into emotion and regret when you surface. At the same time, I felt this need to lean into some kind of teenage dream to distract myself from the sadness of it all. That's where the production comes in."
Check out the video below, and if you're in Perth she's playing a free show at Jack Rabbit Slim's on Friday 24 November, otherwise she heads out on a national tour next march.
