Australia’s new alt-country darling Ruby Boots has released her brand new clip for single ‘Wrap Me in A Fever‘.
Boots – the Americana alias of flame-haired Perth singer-songwriter Bex Chilcott – penned the song off her debut album Solitude, in a cheap motel room in NSW.
‘Wrap Me In A Fever’ tells the tale of a woman giddy and frustrated by a new romantic prospect, complete with backing vocals by Jill Chrisp and Richard Bradbeer, plus Joe Cope‘s organ and the playful steel guitar of Lee Jones.
The clip was shot in Sydney by Tim Oxford and Simon Knox and captures the essence of life on the road. It’s a lifestyle Boots has recently become accustomed to, having recorded her LP across 4 continents along with steady national touring supporting Tony Joe White and Shovels & Rope.
“Aside from its subtle sub plot, it really does encapsulate so much of how transient things are for me at the moment. I’m sure it will be nice when someday I have a place to call home that isn’t suitcase and a plane ticket, and I’ll look back and remember how glorious it is to be on the road as much as I am now” says Chilcott.
The live album launch tour kicks off in Perth this Friday, and will see Boots & band playing rural gigs as well as city shows across the country. Her performances in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane are double headline album launch shows with fellow Americana band Raised By Eagles.
