Can we call it the festive season already? Well we can certainly chuck out a few ‘Season’s Greetings’, with Stella Donnelly dropping a new video for the favourite number just as the Xmas lights start cropping up.
Co-directed by Julia Jacklin and Nick McKk, it sees Stella hosting a bit of a Christmas ‘do’ in what looks like a local park, and things quickly take a chaotic turn to say the least. Before you know it, there’s pies in faces and lettuce all over the shop. Blimey.
Speaking about the track and the video, Stella said: “From the moment I wrote Season’s Greetings, I could visualise a video concept for it. I wanted to try and exaggerate the sometimes-nuanced atmosphere of a blisteringly hot, Australian Christmas lunch. Working with Nick and Julia on this made the day so much fun because they were able to actually manifest my ideas into a reality. Getting to assign characters to my friends and dog was the most joyful experience, especially when we were all cast as fucked up versions of ourselves. Once we were in our costumes and makeup it was really easy to let the story tell itself and Nick and Julia captured this so well. No dogs were harmed in the shooting of this film!”
‘Season’s Greetings’ is taken from Stella Donnelly’s debut album ‘Beware Of The Dogs’ – released earlier this year. If you haven’t listened to it already then we really don’t know what on earth you’ve been up to this year… so check out this chat we had with Stella and get that rectified right away yeah?
