LUPA J LAUNCHES NEW SINGLE ‘THIS SUBURB’

Lupa J

LUPA J has spent 2020 seeding tracks from their upcoming album To Breathe Underwater. 

Set for a November 13 release, the album is a candid, self-reflective body of work birthed during Australia’s COVID lockdown. The writing process saw LUPA J grapple with their own shortcomings in relationships; the struggle between independence and the need for closeness in such uncertain times.

Their latest release This Suburb comes with a paint-filled, emotionally charged video that sees LUPA J explore a mode of visual storytelling unlike any of their past clips. 

“‘This Suburb’ is one of the most raw and vulnerable songs I’ve ever made. It sits a little outside my ‘usual’ pop-dance style but I think it might be my personal favourite on the album. I don’t always feel up to being so lyrically honest and emotional, sometimes I just want to make techno tracks with little to no vocals – but when I feel capable & ready of writing a song like this it’s a really incomparable, cathartic experience. This one still makes me teary to listen to sometimes – it’s about the intensity of an attachment that’s to not only a person but a place and a life you’ve become so wrapped up in together. 

While writing the song I had all this fantastical imagery in my head of a body becoming one with a place, almost like this singular organism, as seen in the chorus lyrics:

I’ve grown to love this suburb
My skin is a sticky sap
It’s grown into your walls 

And around the vines out the back

Kat Silverosa, the video director, translated this into a really beautiful stop motion style concept where we used paint and liquid to visually meld me into a space. I’m very proud of how it turned out.”

As an aspiring filmmaker, director Kat Silverosa, found the process of working with the Melbourne musician a positively galvanising experience.

“This all-encompassing mosaic of paint that slowly devours LUPA Jembodied the mood and tone the song was exploring. Working with LUPA J, who is also a young artist, was an incredible honour and inspiring as a young female filmmaker. 

The crew mainly consisted of female AFTRS students, so it was fantastic for all of us to work on something outside of school, that challenged us on both the creative and practical sides of film making.”
