Out Of The Blue

View music video here.

Out of the Blue is an evocative character driven song that tells the story of young love torn apart by pressure and hardship. The characters in Joelistic’s narrative –a teenage couple who become pregnant; he responding with recklessness and irresponsibility; she, responding with quiet resolve – are like the complex working-class characters of a Raymond Carver short story or a Paul Kelly song. These are characters pulled from a cinematic drama and, in this music video, we wanted to evoke the world of characters just like those in the song; as if telling a widescreen story of young love, heartbreak and redemption.

Featuring Lily Sullivan, Aliki Matangi, with appearances by Elija Tovio, Toby Wallace and Nikeisha Avio.
