Since forming in 2013, Gold Coast all-girl punk rockers Being Jane Lane have recorded a demo, shared the stage with the likes of Red Jumpsuit Apparatus and now they’re adding another notch to their belts – their debut music video ‘Never Have I Ever.’
Directed by New York Film Academy student and close friend of the band Josh Hale, the video for ‘Never Have I Ever’ uses contrasts between colour and lighting to convey the upbeat mood, and sullen meaning of the song.
“It’s a fun song but tells the story of unrequited love which isn’t fun,” says the band.
Filmed over two days, the girls spent the first day capturing fun shots together and on the second day they converted a carpet warehouse into a stage, performing the song amidst smoke and televisions playing colourful clips from the day before.
“It was pretty quirky filming in a carpet warehouse – we tripped the safety switch a few times which made the place into the perfect horror movie setting. We had the best fun!”
With their debut music video now out in the world, the band will continue writing songs and extending their set list.
“There’s so much happening with Being Jane Lane right now it’s overwhelming, but we feel as if this is the beginning of a long and amazing journey.”
Being Jane Lane play Shark Bar on 25 July, and The Zoo on 31 July.
