JENN VIX Premieres Eerie “Rover” Video With The Big Takeover

Electronic-rock singer JENN VIX has premiered the brand new, eerie music video for her song “Rover” today via seminal music magazine The Big Takeover. The track is taken from her new EP 6, which was released earlier this year via Umbrella Music Co. Being a massive fan of the 1967 TV show The Prisoner featuring the late Patrick McGoohan, Jenn made this video as a tribute, recreating its scenery and style. “The clothing, umbrellas, and ocean scenery were easy to come across; I have family members who live in Newport, RI, so I stayed with them while filming, and I used the location for all of the outdoor shots,” says Jenn about the filming of the video. “The interior set was a bit more difficult, but I managed to somewhat recreate Number 2’s lair to the best of my ability with the budget I had available. I purchased some telephone handsets that were the exact shape of the ones used in the series, and I spray painted them to match its look almost identically.”

DREAMY POWER POP ALERT: New album and video from L.A. producer/musician Rob Laufer

Several factors helped to push Laufer back into the songwriting groove. There was the serendipity ofBon Iver’s debut album popping up on his iPod’s shuffle. He says listening to the simple beauty of this “abstract, overcast” music unlocked a “this is how to write a song” revelation for him. The other main impetus was the death of Tom Petty. The first songs Laufer wrote for The Floating World happened just after Petty passed away. While re-listening to Petty’s music, he was struck by the songs’ economy and unfussiness. The message he took away was: “Just write the goddamn song!”
