Alt-country duo Miles and Simone pay homage to country and western variety shows from 1960s America, in the new video clip for heartbreaker single ‘Never Leave’.

Directed by Tom Salisbury, and modelled on a 1960s American country and western variety show, ‘Never Leave’ was shot at a secret Television studio location in Melbourne. The clip features Miles and Simone, performing as themselves, with a flock of hens, and to give the piece a strong Australian feel, John Jacobs stars as the show’s host in his pink suit and old cowboy hat, pitching his character somewhere between Barry Mackenzie and a character from ‘Wake in Fright.

Miles and Simone have assured us that “No feathered actors or actresses were harmed” during the filming ‘Never Leave’ and are safely back with Brett and Emily basking in the sun on their farm.
