GRETTA ZILLER Releases Beautiful Music Video For “QUEEN OF BOOMTOWN”

5 min read



Gretta Ziller has released the official music video for her latest single and title track of her debut album, Queen of Boomtown, out 1 September through independent record label, Social Family Records and available to pre-order now.

Filmed out at Dural in Sydney’s north-western outskirts, the video was produced and directed by Joyce Ong and Michael Tan of New Heights Media.  Beautifully shot, it paints a picture of isolation, standing tall in a metaphorically abandoned place, as the song implies.

When Joyce and I started talking about the video, it was an easy transition, with both of us having a similar idea about the sort of outdoor location we wanted to shoot, the grand piano…the crown…the whole lot.  On the day of filming, everything ran together seamlessly and I think that comes across in the clip, which I’m incredibly proud of,” says Ziller.

Ziller’s debut album, Queen of Boomtown, is threaded with a gentle fatalism, each song conveying an acceptance of the way things are and an openness to shifting circumstance.  “I draw on the emotion of needing change a lot when I write, I’m a person that likes and craves change,” Ziller explains.
Any pre-orders via iTunes receive the title track and Gretta’s previous single, Slaughterhouse Blues, instantly.  For CD pre-orders via Sanity and JB Hi-Fi, fans will receive a signed album slick and any pre-orders via the SFR Store will receive a signed album slick, the two singles instantly, as well as a full digital download of the album on release day.

One thing stands out clearly across Queen of Boomtown’s vital span: Ziller is an astute chronicler of experience. That she is uniquely able to translate her observations of the human condition into captivating vocal performance cements the album as one of the most uniquely penetrating in recent memory.”
