Glass Jars is the brand new single from Melbourne-based cyber-soul 3 piece Cool Explosions. The single releases worldwide digitally on Friday 22 February 2019

Produced by the band's keyboardist Matty Vehl and mixed by Nick Herrera (Haitus Kaiyote; Nai Palm), Glass Jars is the second single from the upcoming, debut self-titled Cool Explosions album.

Ordered in aisles, all locked up in grids
The days are glass jars, with holes punched in the lids...

The music video for Glass Jars (premiered by Brooklyn based blog Big Shot Magazine) is created by director/cinematographer Sasha Whitehouse. The clip is a stunning, solo dance tour de force choreographed and performed by classical-contemporary dance bad-ass Juliet Burnett. Previously principal dancer with the Australian Ballet, Burnett is now based in Belgium, where she is currently principal dancer with the prestigious Ballet Vlaanderen under Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui (known for choreographing the Beyonce / Jay-Z video 'Apeshit')

The music video draws upon themes of chrysalis; of the soul’s intuition that it is expanding beyond the constraints of its vessel, and the ensuing cracks that facilitate metamorphosis, emancipation and rebirth. In an echo of Psyche’s tasks and ultimate trial in the underworld, our hero meets and negotiates a series of trials in a simple tunic, amidst an ever intensifying subjugation of light and colour, culminating in a frenzied, hallucinatory cataclysm of exertion.

Cool Explosions launch the strictly limited 12" vinyl format of the release at Melbourne’s The Toff In Town, Saturday 30 March, with support from Niine and Louise Terra.
