Tami Neilson Reveals Scorching Video For 'You Were Mine'

With a whole bunch of Aotearoa shows locked in for September, ever-productive soul sensation Tami Neilson unfurls scorching visuals for 'You Were Mine', featured on her latest album CHICKABOOM! Directed by Neilson's brother Todd and created with the support of NZ On Air, the stylish and hard-boiled mini crime drama meets the challenge posed by the Canadian-born, Tāmaki Makaurau-based artist's massive ballad – with eerie back-projected visuals lurching into frayed abstraction, as emotions ramp up to a literally explosive conclusion.

Tami Neilson opened up to American Songwriter about the emotionally raw roots of the song: “This video was directed by my brother Todd (who went full Tarantino!) and the song was written with my brother Jay, born out of a conversation we had about life after losing our Dad... We spoke about how we tend to use traumatic or life-altering events as markers in our lives and it’s suddenly split into two categories: ‘before’ and ‘after.’ That loss became the way we measure time. This song definitely hits differently this year. I think we have all had that line drawn in the sand and our lives will never be the same.”

'CHICKABOOM!' is out now via Outside Music / Neilson Records.
