Jim Lawrie - Slacker of the Year

Jim Lawrie - Slacker of the Year
Melbourne’s finest purveyor of heartbroken folk-rock, Jim Lawrie, returns with the shimmering title track from his new album Slacker of the Year, which was premiered via triple j's Roots n' All.

Jim has also shared his simultaneously absurd, amusing and melancholy video for the song, directed & produced by James Ruse. It features a forlorn Lawrie travelling around Melbourne during peak-hour in nothing but a pair of pyjamas. It is strangely moving.

The song came as a result of writers block, muse-less musings and time spent poorly, …and the video encapsulates this perfectly. In Jim’s words, the clip shows him "waking to a world already moving without him, and like a salmon going upstream, he moves through his day waiting to be eaten by the metaphorical bear that is the world around him.”

Jim Lawrie’s upcoming album is a culmination of years of creative introspection. His own stunning take on the building blocks of classic rock and folk.

About this track...

'Slacker of the Year' is a gorgeously finger-picked daydream ballad which entertains the idea that a bedroom-bound slacker could somehow be celebrated as hero to the masses.
