Jackie Cohen / Shares One-Shot Video For New Single 'Chico Chico'
Jackie Cohen has released an official video for her brand new single, 'Chico Chico’. The track is the third to be taken from her debut album, ‘Zagg’, which is set for release on 10th May 2019 via Spacebomb. Directed by Ori Ravid, choreographed by Erin Murray (Charli XCX & Troye Sivan, John Legend), and filmed in one shot in a shopping center in the San Fernando Valley, the video for 'Chico Chico' is as fun as the song itself.
Director Ori Ravid says about making the video: “’Chico Chico’ to me is breezy and cheeky and just makes you smile. Jackie and I bounced some ideas off each other, and when the opportunity came up to shoot in my friend's dad's parking lot I knew we would capture something special.”

The forthcoming release of ‘Zagg’ follows Jackie’s two introductory EPs ‘Tacoma Night Terror Parts 1 & 2’, which were released last year, also on Spacebomb, and were called "utterly spellbinding" (The Line of Best Fit), "a stunning and complete debut" (Vinyl Me, Please), and "sleazy-listening glam" (The Guardian).
Taking its title from one of Jackie’s many, many nicknames, ‘Zagg’ was co-produced by Jonathan Rado (Foxygen) & Matthew E. White and features the Spacebomb House Band, with horns & strings arranged by Trey Pollard, whilst artwork for the album comes courtesy of The Moldy Peaches’ Adam Green.
Speaking about this full-length debut, Jackie herself shares: “‘Zagg’ is me, my name, and this record is my first real, intentional, nearly unabashed step toward being myself confidently out in the world. Here I am! Here are my songs. Making this record was truly a “life zagg” for me. I quit my marketing job. I quit my teaching job. I quit my sausage sampling at the mall job. I started taking my meds as directed. I’m reflecting instead of spiraling. Got my egg cracked a few times but I’m landing sunny side up.”
The album was announced alongside lead single ‘FMK’ which is still available to stream and share online, here.
Having toured with the likes of Mac DeMarco, Alex Cameron, and The Lemon Twigs as well as playing her own headline shows on both sides of the Atlantic throughout 2018, Jackie recently made a return to the stage with her SXSW debut. Next up, she’ll embark on a lengthy North American tour supporting Weyes Blood throughout May and June, whilst details of UK shows will to be announced later in the year.
