Jarrow has released the exultant garage-rocker ‘Kelp’, it’s the second single to come from his second album Expensive Hugs, out Friday 16 March. Watch the clip below!
As the opening track off Expensive Hugs, ‘Kelp’ perfectly sets the tone for Jarrow’s weird and wonderful second album. Hooks, yelps and a dynamic lead-guitar adorn his compelling turn of phrase as it battles to break free of the songs perfect garage pop structure.
‘Kelp’ is accompanied by an incredible experimental clip using software that links a dozen iPhones together to record simultaneously. As Dan (the mastermind behind Jarrow) explains, “I was approached by director Mike Plumridge who came up with the idea of filming a band in 360 degrees while they shredded to their hearts content. As a massive fan of The Matrix I just couldn’t help but say yes.” He goes on to say “To make this recipe you will need: 16 smartphones, a warehouse in Collingwood, a bike, a smoke machine, my friend Travis, a game of Scrabble and a cardboard cutout of yours truly. Mix it all together and you got a tasty dish indeed.”
Jarrow is also half way through his Wednesday night residency at the Evelyn Hotel. He has self curated an incredible all-star line up including visual artists each week. For those in Melbourne – don’t miss these last 2 weeks!
