Jervis Bay duo
unveil video for their current single
Supporting Teenage Joans on their EP tour in October.
Jervis Bay duo Debbies unveil their new video for their ‘Sinner’. The new track illustrates why this young Aussie surf punk band have in 2 short years already achieved so much – winning the Yours and Owls Festival (2019), Triple j Unearthed High Finalists (2019) as well as performing at Falls Festival and Bigsound.
Sinner has been added to Triple j Unearthed with spins on Triple j including on Home and Hosed with Declan Byrne and added to Spotify’s Local Noise and Fresh Finds AU/NZ playlist.
When writing the single, Debbies wanted to capture a more ‘word-painting’ esque vibe by incorporating the river scenery throughout the verses which stemmed from a real experience of when they went to a party a few years ago.
The video for ‘Sinner’ was filmed on the Shoalhaven River at Grady’s River Retreat. A place the band had grown up around. It was directed by Dane Singleton and edited by Tas Wilson from Ruby Fields.
“Looking back on it now, the way the Sinner music video came about was really just a series of fortunate events. Of meeting the right people and bringing the ideas we had to life. It all started before we even recorded the song when we went to the Gerringong Winter Wine Festival to watch friends Teenage Joans, and happened to bump into Tas Wilson from Ruby Fields.
‘Sinner’ is the follow up to Triple j favourites ‘Money’, ‘Influencer’ and ‘Waking Up In L.A.’ The track came together at Defwolf Studios Sydney with mixing and mastering by George Georgiadis. “In the studio we wanted to really make the bridge a special moment in the song so we played around with different synths and ways of layering drums and vocals that we had never done before. The result felt like some dreamy vocal layered questioning of “is it hard to be like somebody else” that snaps out into an answer in the last pre chorus.”
