Exclusive Video Premiere: St Joan “First Blood” (2018)

A howl of regret and longing for a past life ring throughout St Joan’s single, “First Blood” but it is the release of their new video that puts a face to this familiar story. And we’re excited to premiere it today.

Here’s what the Sydney three piece have to say about the clip:

“The short film explores betrayal in relationship and where it leaves both parties’ decades down the road. After the debris have been cleared and the dust settle we see a man half of whom he once was, restless in the shadow of a broken love.

This tired character empathises both with the betrayed and the betrayer as it sheds harsh light on the romance of unfaithfulness and the deep lasting consequence it leaves the wounded.

The piece is a foreboding reminder of the fragility of commitment in the face of the fleeting nature of life.”
