Watch Tami Neilson's Video For 'Careless Woman'

Samantha Cheong / Monday 20th June, 2022 2:24PM

Award-winning country soul songwriter Tami Neilson shares her third single and accompanying video for ‘Careless Woman’ in anticipation of her forthcoming fifth studio album Kingmaker — set for release Friday 15th July. Directed by Abe Mora and created with support from NZ On Air, the music video is “inspired by a 1938 collection of ‘Dating Tips’ in Parade Magazine,” in which one reads: “Careless Women never appeal to gentlemen. Don’t talk while dancing, for when a man dances, he wants to dance”. Co-starring Olivia Tennet (The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, Power Rangers RPM) and Ling Zhang (Royal Family Dance Crew), they turn a bar, disenchanted by a man demanding an empty smile of Zhang, into bursting song, dance and colour as soon as Neilson and her Choir of Careless Women crank into life within a human jukebox stage. The single becomes part of Neilson’s lineage of sparking a revolt against the patriarchal systems that easily make kings of men and servants of women...

“Director Abe Mora was inspired to bring this era to life and built an amazing coin-operated music box for me and my band of Careless Women to perform in, like a human jukebox. As the song plays, the women in the bar are empowered and begin to dance and throw off the oppressive rules of propriety.”

Dance more and care less to the latest high energy track from Tami Neilson...



Tami Neilson's 'Kingmaker' is out Friday 15th July.
