Jackie Cohen Announces New EP and Shares Video
pacebomb Records artist Jackie Cohen released her new video for “Darlin'” today. The video was directed by Anise Mariko and shot in Los Angeles. It can be seen HERE. Cohen said of the video “For this video, I wanted to do a sort of exaggerated, garish home-workout video that reflected some mechanisms of anxiety management. Emotional processing is very physical for me. I do a lot of planks and eat a lot of garbage when I’m overwrought. I love working with Anise as a director because her shots are so intimate, textural, and romantic. She’s the only person I’ll let straddle me for a shot. Introducing her style to Danny’s video-synth editing made for a really unusual and striking aesthetic that I can hardly take credit for. My dad built the green screen and big crazy candles. Rado’s footage didn’t make the cut. Sorry, babe. ”
