Twelve Foot Ninja has released the music video for “Over and Out” which features a guest appearance by Jinjer vocalist Tatiana Shmayluk. Their new album Vengeance, out October 15th, will be the vessel for this new track.


Guitarist Stevic MacKay explains:

“A man covered in cow s**t wanders the Australian bush seeking clarity. Tortured by recurring dreams about having no face, meeting the ferryman in a Finnish swamp, old twitchy people with straw heads, vacuuming the forest, cradling a pike and squash playing goat people who spoil Christmas and drink everyone’s dregs…The only obvious thing to do is find a door Goblin to suck ‘dream gravy’ (aka Vegemite) off his fingers so he can teleport to a Ukrainian mechanical genie to blow his mind with Australian metaphors about being f**ked in the head.”

Lead singer Kin comments:

“We wanted someone who could represent the lyric ‘the devil in my blood’ – both the darkness and the light. Tatiana embodies this perfectly so asking her to feature on it was a no brainer.”

Tatiana adds: 

“When the Twelve Foot Ninja guys asked me to feature on one of their new tracks, I immediately said yes without even hearing it! The song and video were a lot of fun and very different from anything I’ve done with JINJER … it’s a great pleasure to be an honorary member of the Ninja clan now!”

Kin discusses the lyrics:

“The song is an ode to the complicated relationship we have with our own mortality and how death can seem like the arms of a lover beckoning us to an early demise. The French first coined the phrase l’appel du vide which is the feeling of wondering what it would be like to jump in front of a truck or to jump off a cliff. It translates into English as the ‘call of the void’. The phenomenon is actually a positive affirmation that by not answering the call you unequivocally choose life.”
