Back and ready to make waves this week is Jesse Jo Stark with her visual accompaniment to symphonic single ‘Die Young’. An evocative track full of love and loss, the video is equally as emphatic, taking us inside Jesse Jo’s world.
A cinematic new song, evoking wonder as well as pain, tranquility on top of intensity, ‘Die Young’ is a stream-of-consciousness following the trials and tribulations of our human existence. On her new track, Jesse Jo tells us:
“i usually don’t like to explain my songs. but with the heaviness and discomfort in the world, i want to be clear. die young is about all of the personal deaths and rebirths i’ve been through in my life. love and loss. times when i’ve felt like an alien and had to fly away. or accept that i am an alien sometimes. this song is me looking back and realising that these times made me who i am. i am grateful for every moment i breathe in and i fuck with the future.”
An artful creator, Jesse Jo Stark’s sound is all consuming, immersing the listener into her universe. So take a step into the carefully crafted 70s-inspired Hollywood dreamscape in the new visuals from director Daniel Regan, and you surely won’t want to leave.
Following the artist’s recent rendition of John Prine’s ‘Angel from Montgomery’ and the year’s second single ‘Tangerine’ off Jesse Jo Stark’s forthcoming full-length album, tmrw can’t wait for what’s to come, notably track ‘Billie Don’t Be So Mad’ out later this year.
