Maribou State ft. Holly Walker 'Nervous Tics' by Hugo Jenkins
A “trippy ode to awkwardness and all things nervous”, Hugo Jenkins' video for Maribou State's Nervous Tics is a thoughtful and stylish exploration of neurosis and suppressed emotions.
Each scene exploring the different ways that fear and nervousness can manifest themselves in the body and also in the imagination. “Repeated cuts are used to reflect on how repetitive and jarring nervous thoughts can be” says Jenkins, "Interrupting the flow of the film in the same way this kind of internal monologue might interrupt a moment of calm.”
The song itself is about "the low-lying panic of modern life” explains vocalist Holly Walker, "We’re all on our phones getting terrible news headlines vs. hyperreal Instagram images livestreamed into our brains, and it’s making us jumpy. This song is the realisation that no amount of mindful breathing or downward dog can replace some good old fashioned human contact and emotion.”
