Joesef – Fire

One of the UK’s most impressive soul talents returns with a release that is just so sublime to experience. ‘Fire’ is a song that was created from a negative space, and yet Joesef has managed to create something truly quite beautiful.

“I always write shit down when I’m feeling shite. It’s just something I’ve always done to try and see what it is that I’m screaming in my head. This song stemmed from something I’d written about wanting to burn all my stuff and move away.  I always have this image in my head that if bad things happen in one space it stays there and covers everything surrounding it. ‘Fire’ is about trying to escape the emotional weight that places and people sometimes carry after too much has happened, but realising nothing ever really leaves you in the end anyway.”
