Jessica Winter release’s her hypnotic single ‘Let’s Keep This Shallow’, to follow her debut release ‘Sleep Forever’
The single opens up with a South East London brass section played by Alex White of Fat White Family and Warren Mansfield ofMeatraffle which gradually reduces into a mystic whir providing the backdrop for her electric vocal imprint.
Speaking on the track, Jessica says; “It seems to me that everything’s become a lot more individualist. There’s obvious reasons for that but we still engage with one another because we have to so it’s a song about navigating other people who are necessary in your life.”
Jessica Winter was born with hip dysplasia, at 2 years old, after a series of operations her legs were fixed in splits and cast, the only seat that she could sit at was a piano stool. Her grandmother bought her piano lessons and she has been playing ever since. Now, from her bedroom studio in Brixton where she has written and produced with the likes of CID RIM, The Horrors, Gorillaz, Ho99o9, Fat White Family and Pregoblin she releases as what she describes as an honest attempt to make pop music influenced by Barbara Streisand to Death Grips, she will be supporting Death Grips on 2nd June during her Scandinavian tour which ends with a main stage slot at Field Day Festival.
