Australian singer/songwriter Stella Donnelly is releasing her debut full-length album, Beware of the Dogs, on March 8 via Secretly Canadian. Now she has shared another song from it, “Tricks,” via a video for the song. Fellow Australian musician Julia Jacklin co-directed the video with her frequent collaborator Nick Mckk. The video was shot in Melbourne and features Donnelly being followed around by an over exuberant dancing man. Watch is below, followed by Donnelly’s upcoming tour dates.

A press release says: “‘Tricks’ is a deceptively catchy jab at racist Australian pride and the absurdity of the music industry.”

Donnelly had this to say about the song in the press release: “This song is a playful zoom-in on the ‘Australian Identity’ and a loose dig at the morons that used to yell sh*t at me when I played cover gigs on Sunday afternoons. It probably served me right for singing ‘Wonderwall’ every weekend.”

Previously Donnelly shared a video for Beware the Dogs’ first single “Old Man,” which was an honorable mention on our Songs of the Week list, but in retrospect definitely should’ve made the main list. Then she has shared another song from the album, “Lunch,” also via a video for the song, and that song did make our Songs of the Week list. Donnelly also performed a Tiny Desk Concert for NPR Music.
