|Jebediah singles chronology|
"She's Like a Comet" is the first single from Kosciuszko, the fifth studio album from Australian alternative rock band, Jebediah; the single was released on 2 February 2011. The song debuted at number 11 on the Australian ARIA Charts and was eventually certified gold.
Lead singer and lyricist, Kevin Mitchell, has revealed that the song was written in a very short timespan, with identical chords for both the verses and chorus. In an interview with Hit List TV, Mitchell disclosed that he had only become aware of the unchanging song structure following the recording process.
The music video was filmed in Sydney, and is a homage to both manga and giant monster films. The video features a female superhero who is played by Alycia Debnam-Carey (in contrast to the male from the "Leaving Home" music video), who eventually prevails over a giant monster within a miniature cityscape. The video was directed by Alex Ryan and produced Jiao Chen.
The song was the "First Prize" winner in the "Rock Category" for the International Songwriting Contest (ISC).
"She's Like A Comet" was nominated for the "Most Played Australian Work" and "Rock Work of the Year" at the 2012 APRA (Australasian Performing Right Association) Music Awards.
