Central Coast indie-pop singer-songwriter, Jessie-May Kitchen's newest music video parodies The Mystery Gang.
Central Coast indie pop singer-songwriter, Jessie-May Kitchen's latest music video, 'Blue Skies', parodies The Mystery Gang from 'Scooby Doo'.
Part of her debut EP 'Zone Out' that she released earlier this year, 'Blue Skies' features a lyrical story of optimism and happiness.
"It's about facing your own self-doubt and choosing to be happy despite our own inner conflict," Jessie-May says.
"The one message I want the audience to walk away with is – we are the only ones who can stop ourselves from reaching our dreams and goals."
What better way to promote such a message than with The Mystery Gang. "I chose to parody The Mystery Gang because I wanted the message of this video to reach many people, and they have a character for everyone," Jessie-May says.
"We have the jock, the nerd, the funny one, even the weird kid!"
scenestr is stoked to premiere the 'Blue Skies' music video today. Enjoy.
When it came time to dance like it was the '70s in the clip, Jessie-May admits she and her crew were newbies.
However, she sprung some advice that would even make Scooby blush. "Being born in a different era, everybody wasn't really sure how to dance like the '70s era Mystery Gang are set in. I suggested 'dance like your Mum when she's drunk', and it seemed to work."
It also looks like the video clip was filmed on a secluded, country dirt road. Correct, but there were other travellers to navigate. "The road was secluded, but close to a motor bike track that branches out from the main road," Jessie-May says.
"The one day we picked to film was on a competition day, so we had many motor bikes roar loudly past our location, forcing the cameras to turn away, sending rocks, dirt and dust flying everywhere."
Lastly, Jessie-May has a few people to thank. "I couldn't of done it without my amazing friends who I want to thank: Amy Thompson, Christian Barford, Faith Miller, Miguel Cullen and Shannon Brooke Joyce.
"I really do have friends who will go above and beyond for me when I need it and I not only love them all dearly, but feel truly lucky to call them my friends."
