Alice Jemima has just revealed a new video for her single ‘Take Me Back’, which appears on her debut self-titled album (produced by Roy Kerr; London Grammar, Bloc Party, Foxes) released earlier this year via Sunday Best Recordings.
‘Take Me Back’ is now featuring on a Simple Advert as of the 1st July 2017 and is one of the first songs Alice wrote for the album. She describes the new single, ‘Production-wise it’s pretty much stayed the same along the way, I tried to change it up a bit, give it more of an electronic vibe but it seems to be one of those tracks where a percussive feel works best. ‘
The video for ‘Take Me Back was directed by James Heaphy and features a girl replaying memories of past relationships and friendships. In Alice’s own words, ‘It’s a visualisation of the song showing fragments of people’s past and the times they’ve had; an inspiring journey through the memories that give us confidence and carry us through the mundane. I love the nostalgic feel to it. The lyrics are about friendship and finding out about who you are and the person you want to be’
