Emerging indie-pop star Jeline brand new single ‘Are You Over Jer?’

Emerging indie-pop star Jeline brand new single ‘Are You Over Jer?’

Following the success of her 2023 single ‘Time Stops’ (Juice TV, Tearaway, R1, Radio Control, The Most FM), Jeline and longtime collaborator/producer Jack Hegarty are showing no signs of slowing down with today’s release. ‘Are You Over Her?’ is a powerhouse track that paints a vivid picture of being young, jealous, and in love.

“I wrote the song to purge all my thoughts and feelings after a long time of obsessing over my partner’s ex,” explains Jeline. “It’s about the utter confusion over the mystery of her, but also that really common insecurity surrounding exes.” This is a track full of ‘mood swings’, illustrated both lyrically and instrumentally with huge dynamic shifts, swelling backing vocals, and an epic gritty guitar solo.

Also released today is a new music video directed by Francesca Sewell and Kerry Pulham (DOP), alongside the same team as the impressively moving indie music video for ‘Time Stops’. This new video follows Jeline and her boyfriend through the whirlwind of bumping into an ex, and all the baggage that arises – with transitions from sweet memories to an angsty present, and a not-so-subtle ‘stalker wall’ – which add layers to the song that make it harder to place blame.

“Francesca asked if the boyfriend should be portrayed as the villain,” says Jeline, “but personally, I think everyone sucks in this story. The boyfriend isn’t being straight up about his feelings, the ex wasn’t a good partner, and I’m digging it all up and being obsessive.”

Perfectly capturing the visceral and complicated feelings of young love, ‘Are You Over Her?’ was recorded last year during Jeline’s final year studying commercial music at Wellington’s Massey University. Once again working alongside producer Jack Hegarty, the track was also mixed and mastered by Jpec.
