Courtney Barnett has released the devastatingly beautiful and poignant video for ‘Kim’s Caravan’ from her debut album Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit, an album which recently debuted at number #10 on the US Billboard album sales charts and #4 on the ARIA charts at home in Australia . ‘Kim’s Caravan’ will be released as a special Record Store Day 12″ and is paired with a gorgeous and intimate recording of John Cale’s ‘Close Watch’ as the B-Side.

Courtney tells us some background about the track which is written in part about environmental concerns for the Great Barrier Reef saying ‘Kim’s Caravan‘ is an apocalyptic tale of our world painted black with oil and soot, painted red with blood and greed. The song was born when blessed with time to reflect, feeling the frustration and helplessness of the destruction of my environment and the litter of humans within it. It was partly inspired by watching Black Rain Falls, a documentary about Midnight Oil’s concerts out the front of the Exxon building in NYC in 1990″. These issues and concerns are also depicted in the cover art drawn by Courtney especially for this release.

Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit is out now in Australia via Milk! Records / Remote Control Records.
