The video for the track “All of These Igloos” was released earlier this week. Directed by Matthew Robinson (whose credits include videos for the duo JOGGER), it features a synchronized dance routine by avant dancer/choreographer Jasmine Albuquerque. The pace of the routine is synchronized with the melancholy rhythm of the song. The continuous piano plucks amidst the sweet melodies induce a state of hypnosis.

In American Songwriter, Talon described the single as a “breakup lullaby inspired by the imagery of the Canadian North, where I am from… ‘All of These Igloos’ is a song about self sabotage, heartbreak and isolation.”

A live band assembled for JAN’S upcoming shows feature Chloe Saavedra (Smoosh) and Melinda Parks (Har Mar Superstar). Stay posted for North American tour dates here.
