SOMEONE is the work of composer, producer and visual artist Tessa Rose Jackson who creates lush genre-spanning songs with a cinematic influence, accompanied by award winning sci-fi inspired videos she brings to life alongside director David Spearing, with the duo’s video for SOMEONE’s song I Guess I’m Changing screening at this year Tribeca Festival.
Audrey was written as a trip-hop-inspired ode to Twin Peaks’ Audrey Horne. “I wanted the music to channel the twilight zone between youth and womanhood, moving between the sensual and the naive, the danger and the tenderness” explains SOMONE. “My favourite moment in the song is the instrumental outro – as my dear friend Floris van der Vlugt breaks into a howling saxophone solo which gave me goosebumps as we tracked it in the studio and – to me – instantly conjures up the smoky, sexy film noir aesthetic I wanted to reference with this song.”
The video for Audrey is directed by David Spearing and features SOMEONE. It is lit by beautiful Eye Lights which are big wooden structures in the shape of eyes with built-in lights that pulse and react to the music. The video gives fans a glimpse of what to expect from SOMEONE’s upcoming headline tour, where the Eye Lights will be used on stage brining the otherworldly surrealism of her songs and a special kind of energy to the live sets.
Audrey is taken from SOMEONE’s critically acclaimed current album Owls released earlier this year, which began life as a screenplay inspired by a road trip around America’s forgotten towns and the surrealist shadow worlds of director David Lynch, before morphing into an otherworldly record, blending beautiful song writing craft with an expansive psych-pop sound and 90s and 00s trip-hop influences.
Following a series of support slots including dates with The Veils and performances at various European festivals this summer, SOMEONE is playing at Germany’s Reeperbahn festival this month followed with her headline UK/Ireland tour in October-November to promote current record Owls and a set at Brighton’s Mutations Festival in November.
