    Give Me Something

    Australian artist Jarryd James has released his second video ‘Give Me Something’ – a follow up to his debut single “Do You Remember”. Collaborating again with director Jake Jelicich, the video is a continuation from the previous black and white piece that earnt itself a mini cult following – ‘it’s a rebellion from black and white into bold filmic tones, yet it feels like both videos could exist together as two scenes from the same film. The clip plays with similar themes of memory and nostalgia – utilising zeitgeisty visual techniques referencing both the GIF culture of Tumblr and the cinematic legacy of California’s deserts.’ – Jake Jelicich
