Nothing More have debuted the music video for the track “Jenny” off their self-titled album via Billboard. The song is very personal for frontman Jonny Hawkins – who makes his directorial debut with the video – as it is about his sister who suffers from mental illness. The frontman says:
“The story of ‘Jenny’ is an ongoing struggle that my family and I are battling with. It continues to be one of the most confusing situations I’ve ever had to navigate in life. The topic is something that I think many of us can relate to, but not many of us talk about … We all know a ‘Jenny’, whether it is a family member or a friend.
My sister is dealing with this day to day, and it’s not only affecting her, but our entire family. It affects every minute of every day. It also affects the tax payer in all these different ways with how she’s in and out of the system with hospitals and jails.
It’s very tricky and very strange when people have something wrong with their brain. When someone’s in a wheelchair, everyone in the room will open the door for them and treat them differently. But if someone has something wrong with their brain, [other people] immediately just think they’re an asshole.”
The band launched a Tumblr page dedicated to informing people on mental illness and have partnered up with organizations such as To Write Love on Her Arms, Young Minds and The Jed Foundation to further spread awareness.
