Our Golden Friend and Four Tone Artists Presents:

Jess Ribeiro - Love Is The Score Of Nothing - Single Tour

7:00pm, Thu 7 February, 2019

Event Details

Jess Ribeiro has today released her new track 'Love Is The Score Of Nothing'. Out now via Barely Dressed / Remote Control Record, it's the first taste of new music in more than 3 years from one of Melbourne's most beloved and acclaimed musicians.  

Premiered last night on X, the new single is something of an indie rock banger from Ribeiro, signalling a new sound for an artist whose previous albums explored a kind of intricate folk-noire.

This time round Ribeiro recalls the nonchalant coolness of the great French female vocalists of the 1960's. Her vocal performance is detached while a delightful jangle of guitars, drums, keys and percussion swirls happily underneath.  

Listen / share here:  

Produced by Ben Edwards (Marlon Williams/Julia Jacklin) and recorded as an all-star 3-piece (Dave Mudie of Courtney Barnett fame and Jade Imagine), Love Is the Score Of Nothing features lyrics despairing about love at its most nihilistic. This is a song about love - but most definitely not a love song.  

Jess suggests, "Love is like tennis. You win, you lose, you work up a sweat, the game ends. You go home, take a shower then go outside and keep playing. "  

Also released today is Jess's new video for the single - directed by Nick McKinlay and shot around Collingwood's famous Ginger Hair Salon. As Jess explains, "Hair stylist Ginger Light is well known for her love of Brigitte Bardot, Jane Birkin, and all things sixties fashion and hair." As Nick goes on to say "It ended up being a celebration of Ginger's life, shooting at her salon, in her car, and on her roof. We aspired to reflect her life on film.... with tennis racquets."

Love Is The Score Of Nothing is the first music out from Jess Ribeiro since her 2015 triumph 'Kill it Yourself'. That album was shortlisted in the top 10 for the Australian Music Prize, received Album of the Week on multiple community radio stations and received impressive reviews across the board. Jess Ribeiro is undoubtedly a shape-shifting musical enigma. She's never been prolific (each of her albums have been separated by 3-4 years) but the near-untouchable quality of her recorded output is astonishingly consistent and the wait for new music is always worthwhile.
