Introducing Video of the Week from Wales Arts Review. We’ll be showcasing some of the best new art in Wales with a new video shared every week. From music to drama and everything in between, videos will not be limited by medium. Today we take a look at ‘Caragreen’ by Jodie Marie.
This week we celebrate the release of Jodie Marie’s new album, The Answer, with a look at her music video ‘Caragreen’. You can read Marie’s track-by-track breakdown of The Answer for Wales Arts Review here.
Describing the process of making Caragreen for Wales Arts Review, Marie wrote:
“‘Carageen’ was the first single released from the album. I wrote the song with Ed Harcourt at a time when I’d been feeling utterly lost within the music industry. I no longer had management or a label and didn’t really have a clue where to go from there. Ed and I actually had a bad case of demoitis when it came to recording the song in the studio, worrying that the final version wouldn’t be as good as the original demo, but it really came together beautifully in the end. I loved using the Dulcitone on this, its music box sound creates the sort of eerie atmosphere that you might hear on a track by The Mamas & The Papas.”
The Answer is Marie’s first album with record label Caru. You can watch the video for ‘Caragreen’ – filmed in Pembrokeshire – below:
