Josef Salvat Speaks Without Filter On ‘modern anxiety’

It's his bold return...

Australian born songwriter Josef Salvat has shared his new single 'modern anxiety'.

The single marks his return to music, and it finds the pop auteur speaking with a filter.

He's looking directly at 2k19 life, at the information overload, FOMO-mania that seems to scream out of every computer screen.

Or as he puts it: “I think they call it modern anxiety…”

Out now, it's a potent, precocious pop burner, while the video – steered by Josef himself – is typically inventive.

It's the aftermath of a video shoot, an insight into the creative conversation that surrounds a shoot we will never see.

There are nods towards some iconic clips – think Amy Winehouse, Alanis Morisette, Coldplay, Madonna and Bjork – while the camera takes us on a merry dance around East London.

Designed to be watched on your mobile phone, it's a remarkable return from the Australia pop aesthete – tune in now.
