Heartworms Premieres New Single/Video "Jacked"

South London post punk/alt musician Heartworms (aka Jojo Orme) has premiered her new single “Jacked” and its accompanying video.

The track, produced by Dan Carey is out now via Speedy Wunderground. Buy it here

According to Heartworms the song explores “a darkness or entity which you are running away from… but it is really you that holds it.” 

On the video, director Gilbert Trejo, said: “To me, ‘Jacked’ is the soundtrack to a paranoid fever dream. There’s a movement and energy to the song that Jojo and I knew we needed to convey when we were writing the video. We wanted her in flight, but she had to be alone in the world, so I went through and scratched everyone else’s face off of the film emulsion with a safety pin. That feeling of loneliness and the unknown. Scary and hilarious.”

We figured if I jumped in the van on their US tour and shot it on an old 35mm camera I’d recently built, we could utilise all the free foreign locations. Pulling over if we saw something sick, and time allowed. Then we finished it out with help from (DP) Max Flick and (PD) Frankie Latina at the abandoned zoo in LA after the tour was over.
