Jess Ribeiro’s third album LOVE HATE is out now – a masterclass in songwriting and melody. Jess pivots to the visual realm with her directorial output for album track ‘Young Love.’ Premiering via Pilerats, watch the video below.
‘Young Love’ is a standout sleeper on her new record. It’s noticeably different from Ribeiro’s previous work – a trip-hop groove, and a more heavily processed electronic sound.
The song was inspired when Jess was waiting in peak hour traffic. Ribeiro explains –“I saw two teenagers entangled together at a tram stop, they brought up memories in me of how passionate and intense life for teenagers can be.” Directed and edited by Ribeiro – alongside Melbourne photographer and videographer Khan Nguyen, the video follows this same narrative. Ribeiro has dedicated this song to her childhood friend who disappeared after she finished high school. As Ribeiro said “We had lots of mutual dreams for the future. The video features her niece Bella, and Prince, both aspiring artists.”
