Dynamic Melbourne four piece Head of Clay are back with their latest single ‘Janey‘ and accompanying video which releases independently this Friday, the 5th February.
Causing a stir in the local rock scene with their previous 3 singles, ‘Janey‘ delivers a classic well crafted “Aussie Rock” anthem with infectious melodies, sing along choruses and soulful vocals. In contrast to the fresh vibe of the track, lyrically, ‘Janey‘ has more serious undertones and explores the struggles of dependency.
Singer David Trimboli on the track. “‘Janey‘ discusses the concept of addiction in its varying forms and how a reliance on this external force, whether it be drugs, money, power or whatever your poison is; can be your undoing. Addiction can affect people from all walks of life but the end result is always the same. ‘Janey‘ is a metaphor for how easy it is to be stripped of your worth and leave you with nothing.”
The accompanying video for the track was shot on location in Melbourne at both the Infinity Room at Kindred Studios and an inner city hotel room and plays out the narrative of the track with drummer Carlos Meza as the embodiment of ‘Janey‘.
“With Carlos as ‘Janey‘ we wanted to portray in both a fun/cynical way the lyrical themes of the song. The sense of power and security over Janey experienced by the characters in the video is quickly lost as things take a turn for the worst, as is often thecase with addiction. We had a real blast shooting the clip and the two locations provided the perfect contrast for us to tell our story” States Trimboli.
‘Janey‘ is available at all good online retailers and streaming services as well as the Head of Clay Bandcamp store, with the video on the Head of Clay Youtube page.
