WATCH THE “BLUE JEANS” VIDEO
Retail Space recently released their sophomore album, You Can Catch A Lobster With Eggs But Not Egg Salad, and today the band are sharing the record’s first music video for “Blue Jeans” via The Le Sigh. The clip captures the duo of Isabelle Burnet and Jacob Rosse spending time on the road, in the studio, embracing life and their new musical freedom.
The Le Sigh shared:
“In the debut music video for “Blue Jeans,” the band walks straight into the wilderness, smiling together on Australian beaches and driving through the forest. It’s a video filled with sweeping visions of beauty and nature while juxtaposed with the lingering memories over what’s disappeared. It’s a bittersweet, uplifting song with an equally fascinating video to accompany it.”
Retail Space are currently on tour in support of You Can Catch A Lobster With Eggs But Not Egg Salad. Complete dates can be found below.
During this album cycle Burnet & Rosse wrote thirty-three songs. When it came time to edit down the songs to record, it became clear that the overarching motifs of the album were the reoccurring themes of water and their relationship with New York City, personified as a lover. The eleven that they chose to include on this record fit these themes the best. Once they had pieced the songs together they realized that the album told a story about an ending relationship between two lovers, one sinking into the depths of the sea and the other watching it from land. Burnet & Rosse picture themselves to be the ones sinking into the water and New York
City to be the one watching from land.

“Burnet matches Rosse’s longing, the two of them conversing over a dance that moves with the grace of a slowly turning disco ball. You get the sense that this is what Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris might have done after watching Twin Peaks—whether the keening synth is meant to be taken straight or to invoke a sense of schmaltzy nostalgia, it matches the ache in the duo’s voice.” – FLOOD Magazine
“The fateful track is an alluring and fluid listen, not unlike the serendipity that struck Retail Space that day. “I’m drifting, floating, swaying, side-to-side,” a vocally lithe Burnet can be heard singing, sounding ready and able to welcome whatever fresh opportunities come her way.” – Consequence of Sound
“…plays like a lo-fi, basement show version of Sylvan Esso, taking a pop song and pushing it to new heights by sheer force of will.” – AV Club
“A gleaming burst of alt-pop, crafted by the Brooklyn-based duo of Isabelle Burnet and Jacob Rosse, the new record is a wonderfully vibrant journey; the colours and tones that glistened throughout the couple of tracks they shared in advanced reaching new and greater heights across the eleven track collection.” – GoldFlakePaint
