Take Oath & Bear Witness: “Jury” is in Session for Canadian Artist Astrid Tanton’s Striking New Single
It’s a witchy world of rumours, stories, gossip, and telephone games. And for Canadian indie sensation Astrid Tanton, it’s about clearing everything at once on this, her new single and video, “Jury” — available now.
Fresh from her breakthrough debut EP, From My Eyes, “Jury” comes from a place of learning and hurt, the Toronto-based artist explains. Her message is ageless — there is their version, your version, and... Somewhere in the middle is the truth.
And Tanton isn’t afraid to expose it.
“There’s a reason people always say there’s two sides to a story,” she says. “People will twist and tell a story to benefit themselves.
“‘Jury’ explores that relationship of being placed as the ‘villain’ or the ‘bad guy’ in a story.
“The concept behind the ‘Jury’ video follows myself and ‘the jury,’” Tanton continues, offering a behind-the-scenes take of her visual counterpart of the track. “The jury represents not only people who are being told a one-sided story, but the intrusive thoughts that can follow you when you are constantly being painted as the bad guy.
