Published May 12, 2016Australian outfit the Jezabels showed off their synth-pop chops on Synthia earlier this year, and while the band is currently taking a break from touring while keyboardist Heather Shannon battles cancer, they've still got some new content to share with fans.
They've just shared a new video for album cut "My Love Is My Disease," which was directed by Jonathon Lim and finds a Tokyo commuter trying to escape his own invisible inner demons.
"It's about de-stigmatising illness I think, particularly mental illness, but physical too," frontwoman Hayley Mary explained in a press release. "I guess it can be such a burden for people when they feel alone in it. Maybe the hyperbolic tone of the song is a little bit of an attempt to be a bit self satirical and bring a lightness to the topic of illness, because sometimes owning your ailments, and laughing a little at yourself and the incredible tragicomedy of life helps you get through it I suppose."
See that sentiment come to life in the video for "My Love Is My Disease" below. Synthia is out now on Dine Alone.
