Mulubinba/Newcastle-based indie-punk band Turpentine Babycino have just revealed the high-energy accompanying video for their latest single Calamity â€“ directed by Michael Winchester and filmed by Wanagi Zable-Andrews.
Produced and written by frontwoman Georgie Winchester, the video features a stereotypical college party with a loose Australian twist. The video conceptualises the end of the road for a relationship, and the blend of emotions that are felt in that â€“ anger, sadness and confusion. Portrayed with consistent and elevated energy, the video is a frantic nod to the song’s sentiment.
Georgie shares with us the behind-the-scenes process of the music video: “I wanted the video to be fun, vibrant and full of energy whilst also displaying the concepts of a college institution. I’ve scripted in the popular kids, those who get bullied, the excessive drinking and partying that goes on, the shaky relationships and the idea of conforming to an outdated system. The video is a very grassroots production that is unique to Turpentine Babycino due to a strong base of local friends and fans wanting to come help shoot & help make the production as fun as possible.”
Since its release, Calamity has seen support from Apple Music, triple j Unearthed, 2SER, 4ZZZ, The AU Review, Good Call Live, Something You Said, AAA Backstage, Australian Music Scene, Sounds of Oz and Eat This Music.
Turpentine Babycino are in the midst of their 14-date tour across the East Coast of Australia, performing in metro and regional venues. In the live arena, the band appeared on the 2022 lineup for The Gum Ball Festival, and have previously shared the stage with The Hard Aches, Bad//Dreems, Northeast Party House, Eliza & The Delusionals, Horrorshow, Didirri, Carla Geneve and The Screaming Jets.
