Though the haunting voice of Portland songstress Sara Jackson-Holman already lends itself well to a song bearing the title “Haunt Me”, the remix by hometown hero Natasha Kmeto transforms all of the bright notes of the piano-heavy original into atmospheric grey skies. Pair that with a number of delightful frills-and-lace wardrobe pieces — some fashioned by the singer herself — and what you find in the music video, directed by Ife Adeniji of Artistic Outlet Media, speaks to a wisdom and maturity beyond Jackson-Holman’s young years.
Sara Jackson-Holman – “Haunt Me” (Natasha Kmeto Remix) Music Video Premiere
“This video is my second collaboration with Ife Adeniji (Artistic Outlet Media)– I love working with him. Ife had the idea to eschew a more literal interpretation of ‘Haunt Me’ in favor of a more dreamy and surreal one, by focusing on double exposure and imagery. The song itself is euphoric, resigned, obsessed, a fantasy. We wanted to tap into portraying those different feelings in the varying shots. The clothes were found, made, and borrowed. Haunt let me use the amazing black tulle skirt; I made the feather top, and the Victorian dress was a thrift shop find that I cut up. I loved that this video gave me an outlet to experiment with costuming!” – Sara Jackson-Holman
“Haunt Me” comes from the River Queen EP, out now on Expunged Records. Stream portions of that EP below or on Soundcloud. Photography by Kelsey Adeniji of Artistic Outlet Media.
