Today – 15th November – Jessica Winter announces her new EP ‘Limerence’, out February 10th 2023 via Lucky Number on both digital and physical formats. Pre-order/Pre-save the EP using the link below. The EP announcement is accompanied by the release of new single, ‘Funk This Up’, the second track to be taken from ‘Limerence’ after the acclaimed “Choreograph”.
On ‘Funk This Up’, Winter shows her versatility as an artist as she pivots from the more cinematic aesthetics present in her previous single release, ‘Choreograph’, and favours a more raucous, dance-heavy approach. Grounded within her unique, unmistakable style, Winter delves into everything from synth-pop, punk, and 80’s glam.
Limerence was written during a time when I was trying to understand my relationship to love and my behaviours around it.” says Jessica; “Love confuses me so much and I think this EP demonstrates that.”
Directed by Ella Margolin and shot on VHS, the ‘Funk This Up’ music video is an extension of Winter’s artistic vision and is testimony to her ability to create art that speaks for itself.
Speaking about ‘Funk This Up’, Jessica Winter said: “This song began as a conversation with myself… the verses being in the present and reacting to the choruses where I embody the more deranged temptress luring me into the depths of addiction and chaos.
The video captures two versions of the addict, the version that tries to stay balanced and together and the version that falls from the centre. We used different forms of distortion on the face and body and more extreme performance to capture the temptress.”
Following a raft of UK festival and headline shows in this year, Winter will close out 2022 with a handful of London live shows, with further dates to be announced soon. Currently announced live dates are listed below.
In October, Winter released a cover of Metronomy’s ‘I Lost My Mind’ taken from Small World (Special Edition), the upcoming Metronomy covers album. The album will be released on 29th November. Listen to the ‘I Lost My Mind’ single HERE.
Born and raised in Portsmouth, Jessica’s first introduction into music came from an unconventional avenue. Born with Hip Dysplasia, she had her first major hip operation at 11-months old, a consequence of which meant the only seat she could adequately sit in was her family’s piano stool. Confined to this space, the subsequent years saw her cultivate a gift in music and begin to develop into the artist she is today, with little to do but gaze out the window and explore her imagination.
Jessica not only self-produces and writes all of her own music, but also lends her talents to a host of other high-calibre artists too including The Big Moon, Jazmin Bean, Phoebe Green, Sundara Karma, Walt Disco and Brodka. More music and further news on Jessica Winter will follow soon.
