Max Jury releases Jean Luc Godard inspired video for his single 'Numb'
Max Jury has shared the video for his forthcoming single 'Numb'. After falling in love with Max's woozy single 'Christian Eyes' from a couple of years ago, we can't wait for the upcoming release of his self-titled debut album. You can read details and watch the video of the single below:
One of the finest singer songwriters to have emerged from the U.S. in recent years, Max Jury reveals the video for his new single ‘Numb’-the first to be taken from his stunning self-titled debut album which is out on Marathon Artists June 3rd.
‘Numb’ evokes the longing to escape, a longing that took him from Iowa to London, a city that’s become a second home to this accomplished young musician.
The accompanying video brings to mind Jean Luc Godard work with the Rolling Stones on ‘Sympathy For The Devil’ with its director Daniel Brereton saying ‘The song to me has real depth and warmth, and so we wanted to create an honest feeling to the video. We achieved this by shooting on 16mm film, and paying attention to details like colour and composition.’
Max commented ‘I wrote this song about two years ago on an acoustic guitar in my bedroom. It was a bit of a journal entry. Just sort of trying to make sense of how stuck I felt that particular summer. When I started recording the album at Electric Lady, I played it for Inflo (producer) and he was moved by it. So we decided to give it a crack and it ended up coming together as a gospel- driven, almost celebratory tune which in turn gave the song a sense of hope and redemption’.
Having toured with the likes of Lana Del Rey and Rufus Wainwright, sold out headline shows across the country and had tracks played all over Radio 1, 2 and 6 Music Max Jury is ready to make 2016 his own.
