Feel some sweet summertime sadness with 20-year-old Zella Day's new music video for her song "Jameson." In this heartfelt track from her second album, Kicker (out now via Pinetop Records/Hollywood Records), the singer-songwriter explores the perils of falling in love with an alcoholic. Hailing from Pinetop, Arizona, Day wanted to to shoot this video in a scenery like the one she grew up in and you'll get to see Day drive to Mammoth Mountain in her vintage Land Rover and explores the scenic plains in her old-school overalls. Of the shoot, which she did with cinematographer Dana Morris, Day tells us:
We packed up my Subaru and his 60's Land Rover with a couple of outfit options, camping gear, all of the camera equipment, and left for the mountains at the crack of dawn. After long hours in the car we decided that our first stop was to be the hot springs at sunset, little did we know this was going to be the single shot we got of the whole trip. It was a rough back road to our destination but we hurried to catch the light. I had driven six hours in my hand-me-down overalls but there was no time to change clothes as the sun was darting across the sky running from the moon. We shot for a matter of 20 minutes, me in my overalls with the vast mountain range on the horizon, but while we were getting the shot the Land Rover decided to leak all of its oil. The whole trip took a turn for the worst at that moment, because of the broken down car we couldn't camp and because we couldn't camp we had no way of getting the shots we needed. The rest of our time was spent in Mammoth waiting for the mechanic to call us back; we were bitter about our loss commiserating about another trip for the future. A week after the trip I received a surprise email from Dana with a video attachment, what you are about to watch is the same attachment I received in my inbox that day...I call it my little miracle.
Give it a watch, above. You can catch her at NYC's Mercury Lounge on June 22nd.
