Maddy Jane’s playful new video brings together an all-star cast of Australian female music talent

Words by Tom Parker

The clip comes in support of her new single, ‘You’re Not Mine (But I Think You Should Be)’.

One of Australia’s most exciting artists Maddy Jane has just dropped the music video for her new track, ‘You’re Not Mine (But I Think You Should Be)’, and it’s a huge bundle of fun.

Shot in a barn alongside a bunch of her closest music mates, the clip is a rodeo-like jaunt that celebrates the chaos and frivolity that comes with riding a bucking bull. Some stay on, some fall off, and as the rest of the team surround the chosen bull-rider clapping and laughing their way along, Jane wears her heart on her sleeve in a soul-baring lyrical moment.

“This song was one that was trying to tell me something,” Jane says of the song’s inspiration. “It came together so quickly when I wrote it and recorded it in the middle of the pandemic. I spend so much time in my head coming from an insecure place and this was about realising I need to balance out those negative and insecure thoughts more often.

“It’s about coming from a place of confidence and reminding myself that I do love myself and I’ve grown so much,” Jane continues. “Something that I feel like we were all forced to look at this year. After I wrote this, I looked back and felt like I just taught myself a lesson. It’s a feel-good reminder that you are awesome and are just supposed to be doing, you!”

The fun-filled clip features appearances from Ruby Fields, Odette, Annie Hamilton, Lily Richardson (CLEWS), Rosie Fitzgerald (I Know Leopard) and Lucy Smith (triple j).
