Today’s touring news follows last night’s YouTube premiere of Baker Boy’s official video for single My Mind featuring G Flip. It was Baker Boy’s headline show at The Espy (Melbourne) for his ‘Cool As Hell Tour’, where G Flip surprised fans by jumping on stage to play drums. Now they join Baker Boy in the breezy feel-good My Mind video clip, filmed at on Wathaurong Country, Ocean Grove in Victoria.
Director Jamieson Kerr says, “Making a music video in the middle of a pandemic definitely has its challenges. From rescheduling, directing remotely, technical difficulties, car breakdowns, post delays and a hard drive getting lost in transit, we had it all. In spite of all this I was stoked with everyone’s efforts and super pumped with how the video turned out.“
Baker Boy says, “I wanted the video for My Mind to have a really different feel from my previous videos and I think we got just that. I worked with Aurie to develop a direction that felt really authentic, we just wanted it to feel like the camera was the perspective of one of our friends on a road trip. We stepped away from really polished, fashion and aesthetic focused clips into something really natural and fun but still touching on what the song is about with those cute moments! I’m really stoked with how well this turned out! Jamieson was an obvious choice to direct this one, his natural style really just matched everything we wanted to achieve for this clip! And as always, it was mad fun working with G, they bought all the vibes!’
