JESSICKA PREMIERE’S “EVE OF YOUR LEAVE” VIDEO AT CANADIANBEATS
DEBUT EP UH OH DUE OCTOBER 13 VIA LIGHT ORGAN RECORDS
(Toronto, ON – September 29, 2017) – Vancouver based singer, songwriter and pianist Jessicka releases the third single from her upcoming EP Uh Oh due October 13 via Light Organ Records. Watch the video for “Eve of Your Leave” HERE.
The new video connects with the previous two singles “Wake Up” and “Uh Oh” and Jessicka had this to say about it: “From “Uh Oh” to “Wake Up” you see a few familiar things; the palms, the disco ball. We go from a dark semi reality to a total dream state that I, ironically, wake up from in “Eve Of Your Leave”. As I make my way through the house, flashes of that alternate existence come back to me and the blurring of real and dream becomes even harder to distinguish.”
The time-honoured admonition to “write what you know” might be a cliché, but there’s a lot of wisdom in it. The most powerful, emotionally resonant work usually comes from artists who pour details of their own lives into what they create. Such is the case with Jessicka, who describes the overarching themes of her upcoming album as “coming of age mixed with coming to terms with reality.” In spite of their sometimes heady and dark lyrical content, Jessicka’s songs are buoyed by propulsive rhythms and sharp hooks. Left-of-centre influences rub up against an unabashed love of pop music, and the results are as visceral as they are cerebral.
Produced by Bradley Ferguson, who also contributes limber bass lines throughout, her upcoming EP features contributions from some of the Vancouver music scene’s top players, including Juno Award-winning violinist Jesse Zubot and members of Mother Mother.
