If you’re not absolutely flipping your noodle in anticipation for the upcoming Imogen Clark EP, her new single and music video should do just the trick.
The clip for ‘My Own Worst Enemy’ was filmed amid COVID-19 and practises some seriously impressive social distancing measures. It also pieces together an all-star cast showing off just how beloved this indie act from New South Wales is.
The music video features cameo appearances from Lindsay McDougall (Frenzal Rhomb), Luke Davison (The Preatures), Henry Wagons, Davey Lane (You Am I), Georgia Mooney (All Our Exes Live In Texas), Clio Renner, Dave Jenkins Jr (Not A Boys Name), Clare Bowen (Nashville television series), US artist Brandon Robert Young, and Mike Bloom (Jenny Lewis, Julian Casablancas).
Check out the clip for Imogen Clark’s ‘My Own Worst Enemy’:
The track itself features Benmont Tench (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers) on synths and piano, and Pete Thomas (Elvis Costello and the Attractions) on drums. More than that, the track was penned with musician and songwriter Alex Lahey, who also lends guitar and synth to the track.
“I’ve been a fan of Alex Lahey’s since her first singles came out,” says Imogen. “We met in Nashville while I was writing and she was on tour, had some drinks at a dive bar and wrote ‘My Own Worst Enemy’ a few months later in Melbourne.
“We opened up a vein about shared experiences in past relationships and the song just flowed out. I loved writing with Alex, and I love having her DNA in the guitar and synth on the final recording.”
‘My Own Worst Enemy’ is the second single from Imogen Clark’s forthcoming The Making Of Me EP, following the release of lead single ‘Found Me’ back in May. The EP is out August 21 (Potts Entertainment/MGM) and is available to pre-order NOW.
