Jess Cornelius has spent the past two months at the Nes Artist Residency in Iceland working on new material. Originally recorded in Melbourne, ‘Cupcake’ was a bit of a trans-atlantic affair.
“The recording needed vocals and a few extra bits, but by that point I was in Skagastrond surrounded by miles of ice and snow, and my shared concrete work space wasn’t really appropriate for recording. I did a call-out to the Icelandic villagers for foam and cardboard, and managed to build a really ugly-looking vocal booth, then took over the residency assistant’s office for a few days to track the vocals and synths. Jade recorded her backing vocals at home in Melbourne and sent them to me in Skagastrond, and I sent the whole lot back to Melbourne to Gareth Parton for mixing”.

 

Most of the video for ‘Cupcake’ was shot out of car and bus windows while driving around North Iceland, in Skagastrond and at the residency.

“I met a Canadian graphic novelist there, and she’d taken some  similar footage, so we put it together and made projections of it. She set up her camera and filmed me with the projections against the wall of the studio one evening, with all the other artists doing their own work in the background as I mimed along. Then I sent a great pile of footage back to Sunny Leunig in Melbourne for editing”.
