21-year-old UK indie pop artist Jerry Williams has revealed the video for her brand new track ‘Velcro’, taken from her latest EP Let’s Just Forget It, which is out now.
The song is about trying to move on from a failed relationship, and the video portrays the lyrics through Jerry’s eyes – talking to someone who only she can see, someone in her dreams. She says of the track “It’s almost like I’m longing for them to be real, and this puts a spin on the lyric ‘I just want to hold you’”. The setting of the arcade and car makes for dreamy scenes, seeing Jerry dancing away in her own world and trying to talk to her fantasy partner.
With strong worldwide backing from Spotify and combined plays nearing 5 million, as well as BBC Radio 1 spot plays from Huw Stephens, sold out headline shows in both London and Portsmouth, and being tipped as one of The Box TV’s & BT Music’s ‘Ones To Watch’ alongside Declan McKenna, RAYE and Tom Grennan, 2017 is shaping up to be a real breakthrough year for the Portsmouth artist.
As well as ‘Velcro’, her latest EP Let’s Just Forget It, which recently won Best Produced EP at the 2016 Unsigned Music Awards, features five stunning indie pop tracks including Jerry’s previous two singles ‘Mother’ & ‘Let’s Just Forget It’ plus another further original compositions, as well as her cover of The Cure’s ‘Boys Don’t Cry’.
