Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Jack Tatum aka Wild Nothing has unleashed his new single “Suburban Solutions” and its accompanying video.
“Suburban Solutions,” features Tatum’s wife Dana and Molly Burch in a faux choir. Tatum sells a plea for self-improvement: an anti-jingle atop unabashed 80’s throwback synthpop, paired with an all new collaboration with Osmote Wines.
Filmed partially in the suburbs of Tatum’s very own Virginia upbringing, the Tatum and Josh Burgess of Yumi Zouma-directed video, satirises the incessant advertising Tatum experienced after having a child: imploring the viewer to sign on the dotted line, put their feet up, and embrace sweet oblivion.
Speaking about the collaboration, Tatum says:
“I’m really thrilled to be partnering with Blackbook and Osmote for these limited run bottles inspired by my new album ‘Hold’. Sergio and Ben are both so passionate about what they do and when this partnership fell in my lap it felt like such a special opportunity to bring people in on something else that I love.”
“We landed on a Riesling from Osmote and Sparkling Seyval Blanc from Blackbook, not only because they showcase what these guys do so well, but because they’re also exactly the kind of crisp, dry wines I’d reach for myself when out at dinner or having a few friends over. Ian Miller, who designed the “Hold” album art, also designed these labels and we had a blast tying them into the larger visual world of the record.”
