It’s about fleeing the city, driving all night and knowing that you’ll always have a home to come back to. “Call Me Home” has a rock side to it from the heart, but it’s also a very modern sound.

When I listened to music, I would jot down all the sweet, endearing love songs people could write about a person, and I thought that it was something that I would never be able to do in a way that I truly appreciate.

I shot the Your Love video in Tasmania with my friends James Robinson (director) and Amy Dellar (director of photography).
