Kristy James releases music video for latest single, Dark Sunglasses

Dark Sunglasses is the latest single from country rock singer/songwriter, Kristy James, and the first track lifted from her forthcoming EP set for release mid-year through indie record label, Social Family Records. Released to radio earlier this week, the music video solidifies the story behind the track.

A haunting and catchy song, Dark Sunglasses was produced by Kristy and her partner, Luke Davis, at their home studio, The Avenue Recording Studio. It’s a story about adultery and murder that can be spawned from being cheated on and disrespected.

Most of the time when I write songs I write from real experiences, but when I sat at my piano with my guitar ready to write for the day, I removed my watch, took off my jacket and put my sunglasses on the desk…and in an instant I looked at the sunglasses and thought ‘what a cool title’ and Dark Sunglasses was born.” – Kristy James

Filmed and directed by Jesse Anderson of Klik Productions, the music video brings Dark Sunglasses to life on screen.

Kristy James is a multi award-winning singer/songwriter from Newcastle and has been in the music industry for the majority of her life. Kristy’s first EP achieved a #2 spot on the iTunes chart and her first single Overdrive was included on three compilation albums. Kristy followed this up with a further two iTunes #2 Singles.

In 2016 Kristy was named a Top 5 finalist in the Musicoz Australian Independent Music country section and in the same year won the 2016 Australian Songwriters Association Awards – the country’s largest and longest running competition. To add to her achievements, Kristy was also awarded the PPCA (Phonographic Performance Company Of Australia) Best Live Performance Award of 2016. Last year, Kristy yet again won the Country section of the 2017 Australian Songwriters Association Awards with her original song Take Me Down, and followed that by winning the 2017 PPCA Best Live Performance Award once again.

With 2018 looking bigger and brighter than ever, Kristy will embark on an Australia wide tour including four launch shows for her EP, leaving the next twelve months looking extremely promising.
