Jack River has today revealed the hazy visuals to ‘Palo Alto’, the lead single taken from her debut EP Highway Songs No. 2(out now via I Oh You). The beautiful yet gritty video for ‘Palo Alto’ which premiered overnight via DIY, was shot in the back of a 1985 Ford Bronco and directed by Holly Rankin (aka Jack River) and friends in and around L.A.

Rankin explains its concept: “From the minute the song began to come together, in my mind I saw hazed out afternoon light and everyday suburbia out the window. That golden feeling of looking back through hazed summer light on something you can’t let go of yet.”

The footage that bends around the in-car shots came from different places and times – similar to how Rankin made the song. “We bought a late ’90s DV cam, and some old footage of someone’s holiday was still on there, it felt the perfect distant memory so we added it in,” she begins. “Some of the footage was shot in my hometown, this little coastal town four hours from Sydney – my friends and I decked out an old drive through with disco lights and filmed it.”

Jack River recently announced a string of shows, her first headline performances following her much hyped debut at this year’s I OH YOU BIGSOUND annual after party, to a capacity room full of fans and tastemakers alike. If Jack River’s BIGSOUND performance is anything to go by, these shows are certain to be spectacular. Don’t miss out.
