Australia's Vera Blue has released the video for new single 'Lady Powers'. The standout track on her debut album, 2017's Perennial the single will be released as a remix EP on April 13th. You can pre-order the EP here
The video was filmed on location in Los Angeles with director Jesse Heath. Heath said of the video shoot: “The idea for the Lady Powers music video was to focus on making a piece of work that expresses both female empowerment and personal freedom without being expository or cliche. It could have been easy to make an oppositional ’girls vs boys’ video but that would have done the song a great disservice. The girls in the video aren’t performing for anyone except themselves and that’s what makes them so powerful. Working with Vera and Kodie was a dream - the energy on set was amazing, and they are both badasses. It’s something I’m really happy to have been a part of.”
Vera Blue said of the video: “We were in LA and it was the best day. We had this huge warehouse where there were like 30 people. In every corner of the room they were building different sets and the first one was kind of like, this big sheet of plastic with neon lights behind it. I got to dance in front of it and be really energetic and powerful then I went and danced behind it which felt like a barrier — it was kind of symbolic for the whole meaning of the song.”
The remix EP, subtitled Power Ladies Remix, released next month features four remixes all by female producers - TOKiMONSTA, Maya Jane Coles, Alice Ivy and Maria Marcus.
‘Lady Powers’ is supported by headline shows in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney with all first shows sold out and second shows for Brisbane and Melbourne now on sale. Vera Blue will also be performing songs from her Perennial album at the Groovin’ The Moo, VIVID, Day On The Lawn and Curve Ball Festivals. For tour dates and tickets click here
