Electric bluesman John J Presley has unveiled the cinematic video for new single ‘True Love Waits’, the first track lifted from his eagerly anticipated forthcoming debut album.
Directed by Annick Wolfers (who also shot the video for John’s debut single ‘Left’, amongst working with acts such as Ed Harcourt & The Go! Team) and set within in a remote woodland outhouse, the pulsing visuals see Presley’s formidable figure armed with nothing but his down-tuned, feedback-heavy Hofner President guitar.
The video encompasses his sinister, yet captivating aura that’s garnered support across the board, from broadsheets to tastemakers to national radio.
Speaking on the music, John says:
“‘True Love Waits’ is one of those moments. One where you give the whole of you. You let the tranquil breeze take you. The inhibitions are well and truly gone. I didn’t think about this song, it just came through me. It’s where I’d like to be all the time. I recorded it as I wrote it. First take.”
