Big Loud Records’, Jillian Jacqueline, has released the visually stunning one-take music video for “Sad Girls”. The track is one of six songs from her latest EP, Side B. Co-written with Lori McKenna and Tofer Brown, the heartbreaking ballad uses metaphors to portray an agonizing, elongated relationship Jacqueline felt stuck in.
“When I wrote this song, the imagery I had pictured was definitely a rainy city street at midnight” Jacqueline revealed in an exclusive interview with The Fader. “When I came to my longtime collaborator and friend Patrick Tracy to direct this, we both gravitated towards the visuals of a soft romantic image we had seen of 1970s models in a field of flowers” she continued.
Beautiful and aesthetically pleasing, the video developed into exactly that. Styled in a gorgeous sundress, it begins with Jacqueline in a field of green grass and flowers, strumming along to her acoustic guitar. Once the chorus hits, the singer-songwriter is seen singing and walking along to the ballad.
“It’s the first time I’ve shot something quite so ethereal in nature and I think it fits the song beautifully,” shared Jacqueline.
Jacqueline was named as one of New York Country Swag’s 2018 Artists to Watch, before highlighting her story in our Swag Spotlight of the Week feature back in January. Currently, she is gearing up to support country superstar Kip Moore on his fall leg of the ‘After The Sunburn Tour’.
