Detroit experimental pop trio Jamaican Queens have followed up the recent premiere of the new track “Love Is Impossible” with the debut of a new music video for the song, taken from their new full-length album Downers available June 2 (Freakish Pleasures label). View the “Love Is Impossible” video now online at YouTube. In addition, Jamaican Queens have added 20 new dates to their ongoing 2015 tour itinerary, with more yet to be announced.
With the video, the band wanted to create a visual representation of the songs meaning “impossible love”. “I came out to Detroit with only the most basic framework of an idea: to hypothesize a relationship between societal control and sexual control with two policemen as central characters,” said director Izaak Schlossman. “Writing and shooting the video was a very open and democratic process; most everyone decided on the specifics of their roles, or provided some other flourish that made the video more fun and interesting to work on together. It felt like we were making our own weird Factory film, playing make-believe in the street.”
