We have been Jocelyn & Chris Arndt fans for several years now. We first ran into them at SXSW 2016 with their "Jam in The Van" session. Jocelyn's blues swagger and huge voice grabbed us in the first minutes, and we had to have them into our studio for own session. Her distinct voice will grab you by the collar, bang your head on the table make you pay attention. They obliged and we filmed them in studio a couple months later. At the time they were both balancing being full time students at Harvard and playing a couple hundred gigs per year around the country. In the last couple of years, the siblings have both graduated from college and hit the road with even more dedication to hone their craft.
We are pleased today to showcase the exclusive premiere of their new video for "Outta My Head."
Jocelyn has this to say about the song: "We've all got that something that we can't get out of our heads—a person, a dream, a wish or a goal. For us, it's the idea that we'll be able to continue to share our music with as many people as possible. Chris and I wrote ‘Outta My Head' at a particularly vulnerable time in our lives. He was finishing college, and it was my first year as a post-grad, out in the real world. This was the first song we wrote for the new record. And I remember us finishing it and looking at each other and thinking, ‘Yep, we can do this.' It was such an important moment, because afterward I felt this huge sense of relief, like we'd proven to ourselves that, yes, while transitions are hard, music is always something we can count on to remind us of who we are."
"As independent artists, we've been lucky to have had the support of so many since we first began writing our own music. And to us, this song feels like the beginning of a crazy, awesome, wonderful chapter, one we've been thinking about since we were middle schoolers scribbling down lyrics in composition notebooks."
