Enigmatic UK indie-rocker Jon Doe has shared the video for his latest single, ‘In My Dreams’ via Odd Grove Records. The video was directed by Mike Musanu. For his previous release, the multi-instrumentalist crafted a 4 part story, in which he cleverly set the scene for his own universe of artistic vision. The first part of the story was revealed in his debut Summer Fling EP, which was released last year and the following expected releases will intertwine with this concept while delving into a more introspective direction.
Jon Doe was born and grew up in Hendon and he is currently based in Northampton, Northamptonshire after studying at the West Herts College in Watford. The self-taught multi-instrumentalist experiments with the guitar and the piano, as well as singing, writing and producing his own music, considering himself an explorer of an industry that none of his family has previously ventured into.
Drawing influences from numerous artists and genres, Jon Doe occasionally refers to the likes of The Weeknd, Tame Impala, The Neighbourhood, Dominic Fike and Tyler, The Creator as he creates his music. In turn, the alternative indie rock stylings call to mind the well-known likes of The Kooks, Tame Impala and MGMT.
Who was it that first spoke of the summer of love? Does it date back to the ’60s or is there an earlier origin story? For Jon Doe and his first music video, the origins are clearer, as we find ourselves drawn back into the warm dreamscapes of an ideal romance with an upbeat and cheerful indie soundtrack.
Jon Doe shares his excitement for the video: “This video was an absolute joy to make and being my first music video it’ll always have a special place in my heart. This is just the beginning. A new era has begun!”
