Eaves Wilder has returned with her fifth single and first new track of the year, ‘I Stole Your Jumper’.
The track is her first release on Secretly Canadian, and follows last year’s self-released effort, ‘Mother in Your Mind’. The track was co-produced alongside Andy Savours (Arctic Monkeys, Black Country New Road, Rina Sawayama), and finds the polite teenager expressing rage against a manipulative partner.
“‘I Stole Your Jumper’ is me allowing myself to tap into my own female rage for the first time,” Eaves explains. “But in my own way – no blowing people up Thelma and Louise style – it’s a very British and passive-aggressive revenge fantasy.”
The new single has arrived with a music video storyboarded by Eaves and directed by her sister Dora. Inspired by Thelma and Louise but without the explosions, then, the short film shows Eaves creatively disposing of the reminder of a failed relationship.
“Getaway-driving in a convertible, hair flying in the wind. but instead of riding off a cliff, I just sat on a toilet and sang, which is what I think they should have done,” she comments. “Would have saved a lot of hassle.”
