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.
Vivian Hua (華婷婷) wears a lot of random hats, but has somewhat mastered globetrotting like a hobo and evading traditional 9-to-5 work schedules. She enjoys observing human idiosyncrasies perhaps more than anything and is a magnet for homeless people (a joy) and bug bites of all types (absolutely terrible). Through her work, she hopes to embrace the temporary while documenting the nostalgic, using divination and dream symbolism as guides through the cosmic maze. Additional writing, art, video, and other crap, like her astrological chart, can be seen at www.inallthings-patterns.net. She is the Editor-in-Chief of REDEFINE magazine, and quite appreciates unsolicited personal e-mails just to shoot the shit and narrow the gaps between human beings.
