It is with great pleasure and excitement that I OH YOU today reveal Jack River’s brand new single ‘Fool’s Gold’. Premiering overnight via Linda Marigliano’s Good Nights on triple j, ‘Fool’s Gold’ carries Jack River into fresh alt-pop territory, unwavering in the glitter and sparkle her sound has become renowned for.
“I was alone in New York, chasing shiny things. The verses were spinning around my head. I was annoyed at myself for falling for the same things over again without them giving back. But I also knew how human it was to feel like that, and how I’d probably come up against this feeling again and again. I wanted to write a song for that emotion – the relentless humanity in thinking something is gold when it just isn’t. The hope and sadness and repetition, but the sweetness of truth once you find it. It’s also kind of about realising that your fool’s gold is often someone else’s gold and feeling momentarily lonely, but okay with it.” – explains Jack River.
The track is accompanied by a dreamy video(link to clip) directed by Matt Pav (Tame Impala, POND) and Jack River. Shot in Perth the clip features various characters that depict the numerous fragments of emotion within the song.
Catch Jack River (along with Ali Barter, Gretta Ray, Alex Lahey, Bec Sandridge, Body Type & Rackett) at Electric Lady in Melbourne and Sydney next weekend!
