Today the eclectic and prolific artist Chase Cohl is sharing a Giovanni Ribisi-directed microfilm for her track “Special Situation” from her EP Dear Dear: Volume 1, which she released earlier this Spring. The video stars actors/influencers Luka Sabbat and Duke Nicholson, and with appearances by George Cortina and Marissa Ribisi. Chase joined forces with the fellow creatives when her house had to be tented for termites during the COVID lockdown, and she escaped to the mostly empty and unstaffed Chateau Marmont in LA, where Sabbat, Nicholson, Cortina, and more were residing. From this bizarre event, they were able to collaborate on the special video. Check it out via NYLON HERE.
The published poet, songwriter, artist, fashion designer, and Littledoe Accessories creator co-wrote Dear Dear: Volume I with keyboardist/songwriter Barry Goldberg (Bob Dylan, Rod Stewart, Ray Charles, Gladys Knight). Joined by producer Loren Humphrey (The Last Shadow Puppets, Guards, Willowz), Chase discovered Valentine Studios in Los Angeles. A true “time capsule,” it served as the site for seminal recordings by The Beach Boys and Elvis before closing its doors in the late sixties before recently reopening – proving to be perfect for her vintage sound. Other collbarotors on the EP include Tyler Parkford (Mini Mansions), Benji Lysaght (Father John Misty, Beck), Rodrigo Amarante (Little Joy), James Richardson (MGMT), Benjamin Booker, and more.
