Taken from her debut album Return, out on the ever brilliant Heavenly Records on November 13th, Katy J Pearson has shared the new video for her track ‘Something Real’.
Although it starts as this gently strumming, almost folksy indie rock, Pearson sweet but deceptively powerful vocal drags it into indie rock territory, as layer upon layer (drums and bass at first, but backing vocals, brass and organ by its climactic ending) join and push the heartfelt and damn catchy melodies forwards.
The beautifully shot video was directed by the acclaimed Jamie Thraves who has both produced videos for the likes of Radiohead & Coldplay and directed a number of celebrated full-length features including the award winning Treacle Jr in 2010.
Of the video, Katy says: “For the ‘Something Real’ video I had the opportunity to work with the brilliant director Jamie Thraves and DOP Catherine Derry. We filmed the video all around Bristol over 2 days and had Teddy the beautiful whippet as a special guest ( thanks Milly and Bella). Thanks to my lovely band and Molly shield for your appearances in the vid and shout out to Tom Jacobs and Louis Catlett for being sweet angels. Enjoy the vid!”
