With little more than a cheap microphone, a laptop and a second hand piano, she began to make the songs that would be featured on her debut EP, launching early 2019. It’s a piece of work that smashes the modern beats and lackadaisical vocals of US cloud rap with techno, grime and at least three decades of pop. It’s music to make you feel uncomfortable and provoke serious anxiety in those with a desire to neatly categorise their listening habits.
Following Jessica’s genre hopping series of mixtapes, released to coincide with editions of her club night Hate The Haus, she releases her first single, ‘Sleep Forever’. It’s a haunting piece of trap-laced gothic pop music and an enchanting introduction to the perverse world of Ms Winter.
Sleep Forever precedes Jessica’s debut EP, Let’s Keep This Shallow, due September 2019.
