Marika Hackman's coming-of-age, sophomore album I'm Not Your Man is as sharp witted as it is riotous; and it's out now on AMF Records (Loyle Carner) and Sub Pop in the US. Today, Hackman unveils the accompanying video for last single Time’s Been Reckless, which she worked on with Jackson Ducasse.
The video for Time's Been Reckless follows in the footsteps of Hackman’s last single My Lover Cindy which has been nominated for ‘Vevo Must See Award’ at this years UKVMAs. Time's Been Reckless video heavily references I’m Not Your Man’s artwork by artist Tristan Pigott, switching between 35mm film and glitchy, lo-fi FX around Marika and her live band.
Marika about the video: “I wanted to do a performance video to highlight the energetic nature of the music, but I also wanted more gruesome visuals to reflect the dark themes of death and decay within the lyrics. We filmed maggots, snails and various other insects feeding on different foods from the album artwork, in a style that harks back to those old VHS tapes teachers would put on in biology lessons.”
