Release video for current single
Australian sister-duo CLEWS have released the official video for current single‘Hollywood‘, out now via Wonderlick. The single was exclusively premiered with triple j earlier this week on Good Nights with Bridget Hustwaite.
The video, directed by Maya Luana, was shot in the New South Wales coastal town of Newcastle.
“Hollywood” written by Grace and Lily Richardson who make up CLEWS, is a beautiful and melodic autobiographical insight into the growing pains felt during the transition between youth and adulthood. The track was produced by Grammy Award winning Nick Didia.
Describing the video, Grace comments “We filmed the fight sequences on a bitterly cold winter’s day getting flogged by rain. Everyone was soaked to the bone by the time we’d run the song once, but morale was sky high. We got to pay homage to a few of our favourite Hollywood motifs; the angel wings from Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo and Juliet and the female anti-heroes from Kill Bill.”
Lily adds “I wrote Hollywood in the time between teenage-hood and adulthood, so the video dramatises that limbo by taking people through purgatory.”
It’s been an exciting 18 months for the sisters from Mollymook. Since releasing first single‘Museum’and follow up ‘Crushed’, CLEWS have quickly carved out their own unique take on contemporary indie music. With an extensive amount of touring under their belt including supports for the likes of Portugal. The Man, Laurel,Albert Hammond Jr. andOcean Alley – and more recently their own headline shows – CLEWS are now poised to take their soaring vocal and guitar harmonies to the world.
