■ 'Black Pearl' from My Heart Is an Elephant. 

A love story about a young rebellious son of a liberace, who owns a hair salon caught in a time warp and his forbidden love, the daughter of a mobster. 



▼個人比較喜歡的導演劇情版


最初認識Jihae是在首張專輯當中由Kevin Thomas執導的『Black Pearl』這首MV,Jihae可男可女的外型和低沉磁性的嗓音吸引了我的注意。細小的眼睛、高顴骨和凹陷的雙頰、豐唇,隨興的黑長髮,是亞洲模特的理想典型(ex.劉雯),也是我十分喜愛的風格。而Jihae又多了更多的中性氣息,不只音樂MV、在照片中也常見此類元素如裸露胸膛、蓄鬍等男性特質。



身兼模特、歌手、作曲家、影像藝術家多種角色於一身的Jihae,有著外交官父親以及專業歌劇演員暨鋼琴教師的母親,可謂家境優越,從小就輾轉各個都市:尼日利亞、瑞典、倫敦到紐約,這些成長背景造就了她複雜而豐富的音樂性。



2007年Jihae發行了出道專輯‘My Heart Is An Elephant’並獲得大眾的好評。 Trace Magazine 更是力讚她為 “具創造力的天才(A creative genius)” 。其後的remix EP “Afterthought”、2008年的 “Elvis Is Still Alive”也都獲得佳評。作為一個影像藝術家,Jihae將她的音樂與影像結合,並與多位影像工作者如 Michel Gondry,Marco Brambilla,Gerald Byrnes合作,她在音樂、藝術及短片的作品廣受好評並獲得與 IFC, NME, MTV, Pitchfork, ID, Vogue Germany, NY Press等合作的機會。 從她參與由42位導演合作的短片集合電影“ 42 One Dream Rush” 在坎城影展亮相,到墨西哥的 Hennessy 廣告以及“Anthology Film Archives” 40週年公演開場表演等,Jihae已迅速獲得世界的關注。 順帶一提,荒木經惟紀錄片‘迷色(Arakimentari)’中的 summer time就是她翻唱的。

2010年Jihae發行新作品“Fire Burning Rain” ,並致力於live的演出,如同以往獨特、低迴的聲線以及複雜又不失優雅的音樂層次,歌劇式迷人的聲光及視覺效果,帶給觀眾如幻夢般的體驗。



之前看過一篇訪問,節錄個人蠻喜歡的兩則:
Q:如果你能回到過去,你想對13歲的你說什麼?
“閱讀並學習,不要只是死記一切。”
“以你的民族自豪。“
“不要讓其他人成為你的阻礙。“
“漂亮的外貌是微不足道的。”

Q: 你的遺言會是甚麼?

在我第一張專輯有一首歌叫做
Lullaby for the Lonely People,它的歌詞是這樣的:
I don’t want and I don’t need other people’s measures to rise
我不奢望也不需要其他人的憐憫
We all sleep underground someday
因為我們有一天都終將死去
By then I will say
那時,我會說
I’ve seen all the beauty and the magic “我已經見過世上所有的美麗與神奇,
And darkness so tragic
以及悲慘的黑暗
Still with so many unanswered questions 卻仍有這麼多懸而未決的問題
In the end I’m glad I got to
最後很高興我將
Sing a lullaby for the lonely people
唱一首孤獨的搖籃曲 “

■The Model
she's a model and she's looking good
all the boys would like to take her home that's understood
she plays hard to get she smiles from time to time
it only takes a camera to change her mind


change her mind change her mind change her mind change her mind change her mind

she's going out tonight she likes to drink champaign
by the end of the night she'd be drinking all the men
oh she'll play her game you can hear them say
she's looking good she's looking good
for beauty we will pay
for beauty we will pay
we will pay we will pay we will pay we will pay we will pay
when she was a nobody nobody came around nobody came around
but now that she's a big star now that she's a big star
all the glitter hounds come around and they howl howl they howl


■ My Lovemy love my love where shall we make love
on top of the sun in a field of flowers
my love my love where shall we make love
deep in the jungle with lions and crocodiles
what do you like the most about me
my lips my breasts my slanted eyes
do you like my hips do you like my brain
for you a flower

my love my love don't care if the stars fall
you are my star and my sun
my love my love don't care where the wind blows
wanna give you my everything so here i am
my mouth my money my heart my hands
my imagination imagination my time

my everything everything my everything everything*2




■ Eyes Open Wide i wake up and turn my head
the clock keeps ticking
i rise up from my bed
but i'm still laying
wise up and live what i'm dreaming

it's good to dream
it's good to dream
with eyes open wide

look out cover your eyes
the sky is falling
we're not tied up but paralyzed
are we moving
mend up the lines that we've torn in

wake up but still sleeping



■ Hide
you're love is an empty vessel that glows on the outside with nothing on the inside
your heart is an abandoned castle full of ghosts that you try to hide
but they lay in your sheets they rattle your windows they won't let you be
they're on your shoulders behind your eyes all over your feet
so you run run away
you run run away
but you just can't seem to hide
so let me go while i got some fire to burn
let me go while i got some tricks to turn
that i learned from you



■ Lonely Fire

lonely fire lonely fire so far away from home
lonely fire lonely fire you can make it on your own
where will you go when it rains on a winters night
you got your mothers arms but now that you're the one singing lullabies
lonely fire lonely fire you've lived a thousand lives
God gave you so that you'd grow strong and wise
out your window pane under the shining stars is a stormy sky
pouring bitter rain, let the wind blow through your clouded eyes

■ By The Sea

what you hear is all you know
what you feel what about that
what you see is all you believe
but what's not seen by the naked eye what about that
down by the sea we can be running free

darkness come knocking at the earth's front steps
like a bad friend who needs you but will never see you to the end
people come and people go but there's too many going down now
too many going down too many going down now
down by the sea we all can be running free
