Standout single from Aotearoa songwriting stars Matt Joe Gow and Kerryn Fields' new collaborative album I Remember You, 'Whirlwind' is an impassioned "anthem for breaking the chains of generational family violence" — which earned the pair the 2023 MLT Songwriting Award, acknowledging unreleased songs (at that time) by Australasian artists. Befitting their single's emotionally shattering themes, the new accompanying video stars Gow and a symbolically blindfolded Fields, considering the weight and complexity of family history and spirituality within a sprawling, sepia-tinted graveyard setting.

Delivering a deeply felt message of hope and resilience, hit play on the pair's healing anthem and don't miss Matt Joe Gow (finalist for Te Manu Taki Tuawhenua o te Tau / Best Country Artist at next week's Aotearoa Music Awards) and Kerryn Fields' ongoing album release tour. Catch them this weekend sweeping into Paekākāriki, Dunedin and Gore...

"(Matt Joe Gow & Kerryn Fields) hope Whirlwind’s message can connect with a wider audience and support the ongoing movement of education and reeducation regarding attitudes towards domestic violence.

With its emotive lyrics, it promises to spark conversations, but the greater hope is for it to inspire action, whilst offering solace to those who have endured, and empowering others to break free".
