The Jezabels have just released a brand new video for their new single, The Others, today as premiered on Clash mag in the UK. Recorded with the band’s long time producer, Lachlan Mitchell, and mixed by Bob Clearmountain (Bruce Springsteen, The Cure, Crowded House) this is the first track the band have released since 2016’s critically acclaimed album, Synthia.
Releasing this as a stand-alone track, not connected with any other release or project, continues their theme of unconventional practices, that follows their decision to play 7 shows over 7 nights at Sydney’s Lansdowne Hotel this month. “We’re revisiting our romantic roots in this new song, though with a newfound directness. Lyrically it’s a reflection of the kind of intense loneliness that makes simply being in ones own body feel painful. The unsolvable predicament of ones desire for another crossing over into a desire to lose yourself, where the body is both the blissful point of contact, but also, the thing which keeps you constantly separate. Musically we have tried to sit that on a soundscape that is both euphoric and melancholy, driving but pensive” The band are right now in the midst of a run of sold out shows at the Lansdowne Hotel – 7 nights back to back. With the release of this new track, the band show a return to form that cannot be denied.
