JP Cooper brings back power pop in a very finessed way with this track.
“‘In These Arms’ is a song about addiction… through the perspective of being addicted to a person, knowing they’re not right for you and being in a prison by your own choice. It’s about constantly making excuses for the addiction and projecting romance on to it but ultimately knowing that it’s wrong. I think it’s something that most people would have been through at some point in their lives.. if not, it’s probably gonna happen…unless you’re one of the lucky ones. These are the relationships where you learn a hell of a lot about what is good for you, what you deserve and in turn, if we’re talking in the context of human relationships, what your partner deserves.”
Few talents have impressed more than Jessie Reyez over the last couple of years, and with the release her long-anticipated debut album on March 27, I can only imagine 2020 will be absolutely huge for this kid. And well deserved!
Another strong release from this kid… I’m so excited to see how Tia’s story unfolds in 2020.
“This video was a passion project for everyone on my team and was the most I’ve been involved in writing the treatment and creating the video. We used a sex doll to symbolise only being viewed for my sexuality rather than my character as a woman. In the beginning of the video it’s just me, symbolising how alone and uncomfortable I felt, and by the end I’m with all my friends who supported and uplifted me.”
“Papaya is just a fun track full of so much word play. I wonder if you caught all the puns?”
“Control is about meeting someone that makes you weak in your knees and never knowing how they actually feel about you. You make risky decisions, act irrationally and tolerate things you normally wouldn’t. You’re feeling nervous, insecure and are constantly afraid that they are gonna leave you. Oh and this is when you learn – the difference between love and obsession. For the video we wanted to target this hopeless feeling with a twisted sense of humour.”
“Undescribable Feeling is about pulling yourself out of a dark place. I came home after a bad day, sat at my piano and words began flowing out of me. I hope this song can help others who are feeling down in life the same way it helped me.”
