NEWS: Jen Cloher reveals new video ‘Regional Echo’

Australian artist Jen Cloher releases her self-titled LP on August 11th through Milk! Records and Marathon Artists, playing it fearlessly close to the bone, with raw, unflinching dissections of her life, love, and home of Australia. Her new single, “Regional Echo” paints an endless landscape of breathtaking but stultifying beauty – miles and miles of suburban sprawl in the summertime watch the video here:

I grew up in Adelaide, a town in South Australia with a population of one million. In summer you could feel the heat blowing in from the desert. There was a remote feeling of not quite being a country town but not being large enough to be taken seriously as a busy metropolis either. Life had a strange amnesia. No-one taught you to dream big”.

Jen explains of the video: “Our bass player Bones Sloane was raised in Goulburn, a regional centre nestled between Canberra and Sydney along the Hume Highway. Famous for it’s pastoral industry, most people will know it for the Big Merino, the world’s largest concrete sheep. I asked Bones if we could go home to visit his family and film him. I’ve used small town life as a larger metaphor for small time thinking – there’s something in our national psyche that keeps us small.”
