Last Friday, Jazmine Mary released their second video from the album The Licking Of A Tangerine, this time for the song Move Me. The NZ On Air Music-funded visual for Move Me finds Jazmine Mary with company, indulging in some form of pastoral psychedelia. Intrigued? Watch the video for yourself below:

We were fortunate to have Jazmine Mary take us behind the scenes of the shoot, by providing some fun insights from the day. Take a read below.
(JM:) During the filming the bees mistook us for big white daisies, landed on us and tried to suckle our pollen. I'm sorry to them that we are fraudulent flowers.
JM: Peter (Wax Chattels / Sulfate) in the bobble costume made by Misty Frequency. As the video can attest, Peter really embodied a bobble.
JM: Misty Frequency is in their words a Proud indigenous, autistic, non binary performance artist. This photo is of Misty Frequency in a self designed costume. They are a delight, they moved in move me.
JM: John Gibbs (left) was in charge of the fish. I asked him to hang the fish from their tails in the Puriri tree. He did an excellent job. I would hire him to be in charge of fish again. When we were shooting the fish the sky was pouring heavy rain and we all huddled under one umbrella waiting for the fish to perform. They too are wonderful and I am very grateful. Later in the shoot a ranger came by and was confused about the fish but he was very polite.
JM: Courtney and Jazmine.
