New Job is the second single from Dance Lessons, a London-based, female-fronted and produced trio, creating what they define as Serrated Pop. It follows the successful launch of their "domineering debut" single SMABTO.
Ann says: "New Job has been like a self-fulfilling prophecy. It was never meant to become personal. I initially wrote it late last year – before a break-up. Afterwards, I went on a mad search for new ways to distract myself. The song shows the similarities in perspective of two people post-breakup, both using distractions to mask the sadness."
The video has been shot in the midst of the Covid-19 lockdown in LA by Director Sarah Chatfield (Lily Allen, Lykke Li, The Cribs). Sarah took to the streets with no crew and minimal gear to shoot a breathtaking dance interpretation of New Job – performed and choreographed by Gbari 'GQ' Gilliam and Shantel Ureña. Sarah manages to capture the stunning vibrancy of areas usually packed with people (now eerily deserted) allowing for Gbari and Shantel's incredible performance to shine.
