Track Of The Day: Joviale – ‘Dreamboat’

Instinctive, hypnotic sounds permeate London-based songwriter Joviale‘s new single ‘Dreamboat’. As the title suggests, it’s a hazy blur of beguiling vocals and avant-pop sounds that’ll have you drifting through feelings of pleasure and pain.

Joviale’s music is informed by the tone and emotion in the songs of Billie Holiday and Janis Joplin, the rhythms of 60’s girl groups like The Marvelettes and The Ronnettes, and the timbre of the percussion and brass in the African music she listened to growing up.

While writing and recording ‘Dreamboat’, Joviale collected material for a scrapbook comprised of various fabrics, cutouts from fashion editorials, alongside religious imagery. She surrounds herself with “soundscapes and treasures from different cultures”, often exploring how movement and nature can be connected to her music. ”It’s my method of weathering a crisis” Joviale explains, “because every experience is a gift whether it’s bad or good”.

‘Dreamboat’ is a disarming, harmonious fusion of charming vocals and sultry sounds, and we can’t wait to her more of the tracks on Joviale’s upcoming EP. listen to the track below and follow Joviale on Facebook for more updates.
