Heartworms Unveils New Song ‘Jacked’

    Heartworms is back with a new single, ‘Jacked’. It’s the first taste of an upcoming larger project that will be announced later this year. Give it a listen below.

    Produced by Dan Carey, ‘Jacked’ explores ‘“a darkness or entity which you are running away from… but it is really you that holds it,” Heartworms explained. It arrives with a video by longtime collaborator Gilbert Trejo, who shared:

    To me, ‘Jacked’ is the soundtrack to a paranoid fever dream. There’s a movement and energy to the song that Jojo and I knew we needed to convey when we were writing the video. We wanted her in flight, but she had to be alone in the world, so I went through and scratched everyone else’s face off of the film emulsion with a safety pin. That feeling of loneliness and the unknown. Scary and hilarious.

    We figured if I jumped in the van on their US tour and shot it on an old 35mm camera I’d recently built, we could utilise all the free foreign locations. Pulling over if we saw something sick, and time allowed. Then we finished it out with help from (DP) Max Flick and (PD) Frankie Latina at the abandoned zoo in LA after the tour was over.

    Heartworms’ debut EP, A Comforting Notion, came out last year and made our best EPs of 2023 list.
