Meg Myers channels her inner powers in new video for “Jealous Sea”

Meg Myers arrives to today with her brooding and powerful visuals for her song, “Jealous Sea,” premiering exclusively on Refinery29.

The video was directed by Clara Aranovich, who also directed the video for “Numb“, and sees Meg walking the streets of Los Angeles at night, as she slowly embraces her inner powers and wild side.  Clara elaborated on the visuals- “Anyone who’s seen Meg perform live can attest that she has incredible presence; it’s as if she becomes someone or something else all together, as if she’s channeling odd forces. For JEALOUS SEA, I was compelled to make something that showcases this side of Meg, this power she has, a power I feel all women secretly hold.”

In an interview with Refinery29, Meg elaborated on the visuals, saying, “In a way it’s not the opposite of ‘Numb’ but kind of is because it’s the many sides of Meg. It just felt like i could get really weird with it and show another side, the crazy side.”  About the song, Meg told Refinery29 – “I wrote this song originally a few years ago. I had a fiancé at the time. He was on tour. We were both struggling with jealousy, so it was kind of about both of us. Because I was either on the road or he was on the road and we were both really jealous. I definitely needed to release it.”

‘Take Me To The Disco’ is a raw exploration of the isolation, enamoration and anguish that’s followed the LA-based artist since her youth. In an exclusive interview with UPROXX, Meg talks about how working on ‘Take Me To The Disco’ served as a way to go back and handle many unresolved issues from her past. “Writing [the album], I really thought it was about something,” says Myers. “But listening, it was dead-on about something else, things I went through earlier in my life or in my childhood.”

Following a sold-out club tour earlier this summer, Meg is currently on the road with a nationwide headlining tour that has seen Meg play major markets and venues like Music Hall of Williamsburg and sell out cities like Seattle.
