An upbeat, dreamy, pop-infused reflection on the nature of the image we project; Joviale has shared her latest single ‘Taste Of The Heavens’. Inspired by the Greek myth of Narcissus, the track is taken from her upcoming debut EP Crisis, which is set to be released via Blue Flowers on 6th September.
“It’s easy to get trapped in someone else’s projection of themselves based on what you’re looking for, or think you want and deserve” Joviale explains. “That feeling of obsessional focus becomes what you become dependent on, like whatever substance one needs to function be it: a social/professional situation or your morning routine. It’s easy to become so overtaken by certain habits you don’t realise they exist…until you relieve yourself from them”.
Joviale’s thoughtful lyricism and laid back melodies are what make tracks like ‘Taste Of The Heavens’ so enchanting. Influenced by cinema, the African music from her childhood, and great vocalists such as Billie Holiday and Janis Joplin, Joviale is able to cut and stitch these elements together to create her own intuitive sound.
