New Music Video: Shortstraw – JETLAG.

The idea for the song came about when Alastair experienced a bad case of jet lag on tour in Japan last year. For 6 days he would lie awake all night and only started dozing off when everyone else started waking up and getting ready for the day. He also often gets told that he looks tired in daily life, something he can’t do anything about. So during these nights of insomnia, he thought about how people will tell him how tired he looks the next day and decided he wanted a T-shirt that said ‘Yes, I know I fucking look tired’. This transpired into a song which he wrote a bunch of lines for while everyone around him was sleeping.

“I eventually got some sleep and became less grumpy about the whole thing and the song became more about how you have to communicate with your significant other via LCD screen whilst on tour than not getting any sleep, but the theme is still there.” says Alastair.
