Alexz Johnson’s songs are going to be all over the soundtrack of The Wasting. But they also feature big in the soundtrack of so many people’s lives. That’s why there’s a lot of excitement this week over the release of her gorgeous new music video for Heart Like That.
Like the songs that punctuated the coming of age of countless Canadian teenagers when she sang them as the eponymous lead in the hit TV series Instant Star, the Heart Like That video tells a story about leaping from one stage of life to another.
The leap isn’t just a metaphor – Alexz hurls herself off a pier and into one frigid looking ocean. That’s not some stuntwoman making the jump, it’s Alexz, true to her trademark, going at this story full tilt with passion and soul and that voice that melts like a chocolate chip in a blob of hot batter.
Remember what I said in March about badass?
I'm the writer-director and more or less the mother of this film.
