Exclusive premiere: The Jezabels “Try Colour”
Watch The Jezabels nod to the 90's with crystal and shadowplay in "Try Colour."
To herald a North American tour, Aussie quartet, The Jezebel’s have released this video for the single to their debut full-length, “Prisoner.” Singer Hayley Mary exudes a little Berlin-era Bowie and a lot of Siouxsie Sioux on “Try Colour,” with bandmates Heather Shannon, Sam Lockwood and Nik Kapoler.
“We wrote this song quite quickly,” guitarist Sam Lockwood said of this first song written on the album. “I think that’s because it does have a natural type of movement to it. Nik’s drums (as usual) are the guiding force for the rest of us to perform upon. The best part I think is Heather’s arpeggiator at the end. You can’t hear it initially but if you listen hard you realize that it’s there.” Somewhat like the shadows playing tricks on your mind in director Sam Kristofski’s video.
“Prisoner” will be released digitally November 8th, to coincide with the tour. A physical release follows in early 2012 on Mom+Pop. The Jezabels tour dates with Hey Rosetta:
