The video for ‘St. Kilda Beach’ was shot by lead singer and chief songwriter Tamara Reichman on her phone. It was filmed at the song’s titular location in the south-east of Melbourne. Watch the video below:

In a press statement, Reichman describes the video as “a visualisation of how [she] felt writing the song.”

“[The video is based on] the idea of being outside somewhere normal, but feeling so melodramatic inside that you feel like you are living inside of a film,” she said.

Reichman also noted the contributions of singer-songwriter Gabriella Cohen, who co-produced the song and also provided backing vocals.

“I was a fan of [hers], then [we] serendipitously met and [I] ended up getting her and her musical partner Kate [Dillon] to record and produce the song in my kitchen,” she added.
