Pillow Person, the new solo project of Sarah Jones, has released just three singles to date: "Go Ahead", "On Your Way" and "Kitchen". After playing in other people’s bands for a while - the likes of Hot Chip and NZCA LINES, to name just two– the time has come for Jones to strike out on her own.
“This song actually came to me in a dream,” she explains, of “Go Ahead.” “I woke up and sang it into my phone. You know those stories about the Beatles doing this (but not into a phone, obviously)? Well, I never thought something so cheesy would ever happen to me. But it did.”
And as for the "On Your Way" video, which veers between bubblegum-pop-pretty and fascinatingly gruesome, "I realised that I must have been inspired from a memory from many years ago when I saw Mortiis live and the lights were too bright,” said Sarah.
The “Kitchen” video was filmed by Prosper Unger-Hamilton: "I really needed Pillow Person to be painted gold, but she kept putting the ghillie suit on. This is what collaboration will look like in 2018.”
Pillow Person: "I did a great job hiding the fact that I'm painted gold. Seriously - you can barely tell. Must be the Reason Why I'm King of my Kitchen."
