Dublin jazz Vernon Jane punks share cathartic video for new single ‘Fragile’.
Never ones to shy away from raw vulnerability and confrontation, Dublin jazz punks Vernon Jane have shared a typically intense and pointed video for latest single ‘Fragile’. The song delves into the massive amount of pressure we put on ourselves as individuals to ‘succeed’. Whatever ‘success’ means.
“The water in the video represents the feeling of suffocating under your own expectations,” explains the band. “We tell ourselves we have to be stronger. We have to get better and stay better. We forget to tell ourselves to be our own authentic self. To find strength in vulnerability and fragility. We push ourselves until we break. This video represents a breaking point.”
The video, directed by Conor Dockery (aka DOCK), creates a clip that is visceral and arresting. Neither Conor Dockery nor Vernon Jane need worry. They are as authentic as they come.
To celebrate the release of the video, catch Vernon Jane play The Sugar Club on April 7th with noise pop fellows THUMPER. It’ll be decent craic. Tickets here.
P.S. Does Emily Jane (vocalist) remind anyone of Skin from Skunk Anansie? Maybe they should slip a cover of ‘Weak’ into their setlist.
