I am so pleased to see the return of Toronto alternative-pop starlet Jayde. A finely crafted song with introspective melancholy at it’s core.
“When people ask you if you’re still together, or they ask you how your relationship is going – you just kind of brush it off and you don’t want to talk about it ’cause you don’t really have an answer for it other than being super upset about it.”
“Electricity” was born out of a heatwave, broken by a rainstorm like I had never seen before. I developed the song with my producer in Montreal, playing around on an old upright piano. At the time, I was going through a phase in my relationship that I wasn’t entirely conscious of. My subconscious took over my lyric writing and the words poured out of me. “Electricity” was the conduit to writing about my internalised emotions, which I could feel the weight of.
