The Jezabels - "Endless Summer" Video (PopMatters Premiere)

The Jezabels is focused on producing big tunes that can accentuate the aspect of melancholy and drama in musical performance.

The Jezabels is an anthemic pop band that creates soaring, hook-filled tunes that feel grandiose and aimed for large stages. Indeed, the band is focused on producing big tunes that can accentuate the aspect of melancholy and drama in musical performance. Leader singer Hayley Mary says, “I was always obsessed with that whole Brontë-esque gothic melodramatic thing Kate Bush did... I love the performance aspect of people like Freddie Mercury, David Bowie and Cyndi Lauper." The group debuted with a series of three EPs and are now set to release their full-length, With Prisoner, on September 16 in Australia.

Today we present the US online video premiere of "Endless Summer", a highlight from the new album. Mary says of the song, "'Endless Summer' is an ideal, a fantasy, the kind you can impose onto another person when you are lonely or when reality is dark and cold, like the boy in the film clip." Check out the tune and catch the band on their European and North American tour (dates after the jump).
