Jen Cloher’s new video for single ‘Strong Woman’ was filmed just weeks ago in a London warehouse during a whirlwind sold-out tour of the UK and Europe. The video is the result of a back-to-basics approach – a two-camera crew captured Cloher and her band blitzing through one of the album’s highlights.

The song itself serves as an exploration of gendered identity in Cloher’s childhood in 1980’s Adelaide, and a celebration of Cloher’s unique matriarchal heritage.

Cloher explained the inspiration behind the song: “It recently occurred to me that I have always been a leader, a strong woman. It’s not a quality that was cultivated but something I inherited. My matriarchal line is Ngapuhi, a Maori tribe from the Far North of New Zealand. There’s a famous Maori saying, ‘Kia kaha’ which means ‘Stay strong’, my Mother Dorothy modelled that quality to me growing up and I’m forever grateful that she did.
