JONATHAN BOULET RELEASES VIDEO FOR ‘HOLD IT DOWN’

As premiered on triple j’s Home & Hosed, ‘Hold It Down’ is the first single from Gubba. It’s a grimier, ballsier, more worldly Boulet. The track’s video has just been unleashed in to the world.

Boulet explains, “The video was shot in and around the more rural parts of North West Sydney, in a suburb called Dural. It was directed by Jack Saltmiras, and the idea was basically to form a “Lame Motorbike Crew”.

The main rider is my Dad. He was going to sell the motorbike so we used the chance to immortalise him on the bike. Hours after they took the last shot, he sold the bike for cash and it was gone forever.”
