The video was shot in the Highlands of Scotland, and features model Chris Millington. Girl Called Johnny’s Karen Anne directed the video, and she explains: “The song is about a guy who is disillusioned with the romantic notion of rock and roll, and so resorts to creating his own little world inside the tent.”
Here’s their bittersweet debut: ‘Heaven Knows’…
Girl Called Johnny is the flourishing and deeply personal new solo project of Brighton-born, London-based musician, Karen Anne.
Karen’s ongoing love affair with music has taken a more surreal journey than most. After moving to London from Brighton and forming a band called Ramona some years ago, she quickly found herself catapulted into a new found stardom, signing to a major record label, before going their separate ways a year later.
Karen told POP Magazine: “It was devastating but it did make me figure out what I really wanted to do. I suddenly understood that from now on the creative control was mine, so I could own and care about every single tiny detail.”
