Pillow Person, the solo project of Sarah Jones, has shared a video for her new single, On Your Way. The video, which veers between bubblegum-pop-pretty and fascinatingly gruesome, was filmed by Isaac Eastgate, who has directed videos for Dutch Uncles, LA Priest and Connan Mockasin.
Sarah said the following about the video:“After making the video, I realised that I must have been inspired from a memory from many years ago when I saw Mortiis live and the lights were too bright.”
On Your Way is the jaunty, effervescent follow-up to Pillow Person’s debut single Go Ahead. The track was written, recorded and produced by Jones and is released via Moshi Moshi Records on 27thJanuary 2017.
On Your Way gives us another glimpse into the mind of a truly unique emerging British artist who, after playing in other bands including Hot Chip and NZCA Lines, is now ready to strike out on her own.
Sarah said the following about the track: “Facial recognition software is here to stay. As you have heard by now, facial recognition is now being used to find ‘prospective criminals’ at sporting events and at busy intersections where foot traffic is prevalent. So far, some errors have been made, but the software is being improved as I write this. It appears that once you are targeted, neither sunglasses nor facial hair can protect you. Incidentally, facial recognition can also be used to add another layer of security to your computer”
Go Ahead, which has accrued over 170K plays on Spotify, featured a Spanish language version on the B-Side as well as the track In My Game. Upon its release over the summer, it received critical praise from the likes of i-D, BEAT, Loud & Quiet, The Sunday Times, Stereogum, Popjustice and NME .
