Ivory Tower Video!

Check out the video for Ivory Tower, co-directed by Lenka and Mitch Hertz.

 

 

This video was shot “selfie-style” in Lenka’s daughter’s bedroom, on a iPhone, with lights, costumes and wigs from the dress-up box. The footage was then animated by Mitch Hertz into a vintage-MTV-Monty Python-esque paper art world of revolving towers where she exists, oblivious and entitled; the princess in the Ivory Tower.

New Song release: Ivory Tower

I’m very excited to share with you a new song I wrote last year during lockdown. It’s called Ivory Tower and I had a huge amount of fun creating it with Sydney-based producer and artist Dave Jenkins Jr.

The song is mostly sung from the perspective of a character; I was trying to get inside the head of the archetype of the modern day “rich bitch” princess; stuck in a fancy tower of her own creation, while the world crumbles around and she does nothing to help. She just enjoys the power, corruption and destruction. So it’s sort of a social commentary but I was trying to imagine the sympathetic things she tells herself and relate…

Then it’s all framed within a track that conjures up 80s synth-pop and a revelling in decadence and vanity.  Cue manic laughter: Bahahaha!

I hope you enjoy it as much as i do…
