Watch the graceful new video...

Rising Australian sisterly duo CLEWS have this wistful feel to their immaculately conceived pop songwriting.

Calling it a nagging melancholy, but their bittersweet confection certainly makes them stand out from the crowd.

Take new single 'Hollywood'. Out this week, it's an ode to growing pains, and that sort of no-mans-land between adolescence and adulthood.

It's a period of exploring without a map, refining your life before you're entirely certainly where the final destination will be - in short, it's a fascinating mess.

We've got first play of the new video, and it was filmed in the New South Wales coastal town of Newcastle with director Maya Luana at the helm.

Describing the video, Grace comments: “We filmed the fight sequences on a bitterly cold winter's day getting flogged by rain. Everyone was soaked to the bone by the time we'd run the song once, but morale was sky high. We got to pay homage to a few of our favourite Hollywood motifs; the angel wings from Baz Luhrmann's Romeo and Juliet and the female anti-heroes from Kill Bill.”

Lily adds: “I wrote 'Hollywood' in the time between teenage-hood and adulthood, so the video dramatises that limbo by taking people through purgatory."
