    Brisbane artist Jaguar Jonze has just released the latest taste of her upcoming ANTIHERO EP, releasing her new single ASTRONAUT. The EP was recorded last year, when Jaguar caught COVID-19, and left her worried about her "health and career" . However, she soldiered on, recording the EP during her hospital stay, which lasted 40 days, and the results are truly mind-blowing.

    The track, which captures Jaguar's lifelong battle with anxiety, sounds like a trip to outer space. The video reflects this, with Jaguar literally floating through the space around her. The video required her to undergo stunt training, as well as get comfortable with a wire harness, but the end result is truly stunning. We're stoked to be premiering the video right now, so you can see the results of Jaguar's stuntwork.

    The video is the third released ahead of the EP, and follows the videos for DEADALIVE and MURDER. Each video sees Jaguar take on the personality of the titular ANTIHERO character, that exists in “a cyberpunk, anime, futuristic, graphic, almost sci-fi world.” The world that Jaguar is building around the EP is a reflection of her variety of talents, and the visuals for ASTRONAUT are out of this world (pardon the pun).

    You can check out some of the behind-the-scenes of the video on our Instagram stories, where she did a takeover this week.

    Speaking about the track's video, Jaguar says she wanted it to reflect the ways that her anxiety presents itself. "As ASTRONAUT delves into my anxiety, I wanted the film to reflect that in a simple way that helped portray how my anxiety can sometimes manifest - a contradiction between feeling lost in vast spaces and trapped in claustrophobic spaces. I had a specific idea in mind, which meant that I had to undergo stunt training with professionals and learn how to maneuver in a wire harness.

    "Most of the video had to be shot in a single take because of the stunts' nature in safety preparation, time consumption, and impact on the body. I'm still recovering from the bruises, but it was all worth it, and the team was amazing in pulling it all together. I'm proud of this one as it is 3 minutes of my rawest vulnerability, visually interpreted. I'm also finally ready to share it.”

    You can watch the video for ASTRONAUT above. Both the song and the video form a window into Jaguar's soul, and the pop music she's making is some of the most honest and vulnerable in Australia. The work that she had to put into producing the video for ASTRONAUT was enormous - but the end result will go down as one of the best music videos this year, especially when given the context of her professional stunt training.
