COLLECTING JEN CLOHER VIDEOS

Don’t ask us why this is our first ever post about Adelaide born Melbourne based artist Jen Cloher because we’re not answering you. What we will do though is post all three videos she released around her super impressive, super raw at times sprawling and hypnotic self titled fourth record released back in August. Recorded in Gippsland, Victoria and mixed in Chicago, she was joined for the album by none other than her wife and fellow Milk! Records founder Courtney Barnett along with her long time rhythm section members, bassist Andrew ‘Bones’ Sloane and drummer Jen Sholakis. The latest cut to surface is the thrilling ride that is latest single ‘Strong Woman’. Watch her perform the defiant hook laden track with her band in a London warehouse in her new video directed by Ashley Rommelrath. She describes the inspiration behind the song;

“It recently occurred to me that I have always been a leader, a strong woman. It’s not a quality that was cultivated but something I inherited. My matriarchal line is Ngapuhi, a Maori tribe from the Far North of New Zealand. There’s a famous Maori saying, ‘Kia kaha’ which means ‘Stay strong’, my Mother Dorothy modelled that quality to me growing up and I’m forever grateful that she did.”

Together with ‘Strong Woman’, her Annelise Hickey directed videos are below for deliberative album opener ‘Forgot Myself’ and the atmospheric and circumspect, ‘Regional Echo¬†starring Sloane and her family. The album is available on vinyl here through Milk! Records & Remote Control. Cloher is on tour supporting Kurt Vile and Barnett at present and will return to North America and Europe as the headline act in January and February 2018. Dates here.
