This week's hottest brand new act.
KEY TRACK: Dreamboat
LABEL/MANAGEMENT: Blue Flowers
WHO: Joviale is a brand new singer and songwriter signed to Blue Flowers.
WHAT: Joviale is a dab hand at a whooshing ballad. New song Dreamboat is soaked in pain, daubed in despair.
WHERE: Joviale is from London and plays the last date of a residency at Laylow this week (May 29).
TELL ME MORE…
Joviale has described her music, rather poetically, as her “method of weathering a crisis”. While we hope she’s not beset by too much upset, it sure makes for some moving output. Best of all is the modern sheen she applies to compositions rooted in the African music she grew up listening to and timeless singers such as Billie Holiday and Nina Simone.
I LOVE A MODERN SHEEN…
Don’t we all? Joviale has found a kindred spirit in producer Bullion (Westerman, Sampha), who weaves hushed silences, gaps and many more sonic tricks in between the vivid stories that make up her debut EP.
Quite. Look out for the EP soon.
