Melbourne trio Jade Imagine have shared a single from their first album in three years.
Penned by songwriter and frontperson Jade McInally, the title track to Cold Memory was inspired after a winter swim in a Victorian coastal town. McInally explains in a statement.
“What started as a very simple almost childlike joke idea for a song became something far richer, full of light and shade,”
She adds –
“And now I feel it represents so much, which is why we named the album after the song too. I love how songs can gain more and more meaning over time; the memory of the coldness we’ve been through over the past couple years and depending on one another when life feels dark.”
Co-directed by McInally and Nick Mckk, Jade Imagine’s designative first song for the year is companioned by a temperamental music video that draws attention to its musical swirl.

Cold Memory will be released on Friday, 21st October via Milk! Records/Remote Control.
