Announcing Jackie Cohen’s ‘Tacoma Night Terror Part 1: I’ve Got The Blues’
Tacoma Night Terror Part 1: I’ve Got The Blues is Jackie Cohen’s debut, out June 29th, 2018 via Spacebomb, and today you can hear a taste in the first single “Darlin’.” The EP was produced by Jonathan Rado, Brian D’Addario, & Michael D’Addario, who also serve as the backing band behind Cohen’s vocals. Cohen describes the EP as being a “perfect little encapsulation of the year I started experimenting with songwriting, and of the home-studio summer camp period when Michael and Brian basically lived in my garage. There’s something really special about the setup Rado was running at that time, and everyone had this bright, fresh, exciting energy that I think really comes out in the recordings.”
Cohen describes the video for the first single, “Darlin’,” directed by Anise Mariko:
For this video, I wanted to do a sort of exaggerated, garish home-workout video that reflected some mechanisms of anxiety management. Emotional processing is very physical for me. I do a lot of planks and eat a lot of garbage when I’m overwrought. I love working with Anise as a director because her shots are so intimate, textural, and romantic. She’s the only person I’ll let straddle me for a shot. Introducing her style to Danny’s video-synth editing made for a really unusual and striking aesthetic that I can hardly take credit for. My dad built the green screen and big crazy candles. Rado’s footage didn’t make the cut. Sorry, babe.
