Our first music video of the week selection for August comes from Gin Wigmore with her catchy new track,Written In The Water.
The video is a modern take on Bonnie and Clyde and is the closing installment of a 2-part video for the single. Told in reverse from end to beginning, there’s a fun and rebellious spirit to the narrative as Wigmore and her husband, Letlive frontman Jason Butler, take on the lead roles.
Written in the Water is an upbeat and bluesy song that shows a new side to the New Zealand born artist. It’s taken from Wigmore’s self-produced third studio album, Blood to Bone, which is out October 2.
Wigmore collaborated with the likes of Charlie Andrew (the producer behind Alt J’s spectacular debut album) and DJ Khalil (who’s worked with Kendrick Lamar) on her new material, which finds her experimenting with shades of jazz and electro-soul. This refreshing sound will certainly please the singer-songwriter’s current fans and no doubt earn her some new ones.
Written In The Water is available through Island Records on September 11.
