Jessica Winter returns with the new single ‘Funeral’ - a melancholic indie record traversed with electronic and r&b influences. Released today via Roya, there will be a music video directed by Roger Spy to follow later this month. The single was premiered by Kevin Cole on KEXP Drive Time yesterday.
In Jessica’s own words: “This was written at a dark point in a relationship where the end is clearly imminent but the thought of letting go feels too close to mourning. Realising that it’s better to live in happy memories; Not hold on until there’s nothing left.”
Jessica Winter sits outside genre, scene or group, defined not by sound but by song. Much of her childhood was spent in isolation, looking out of the window from her hospital bed, from which her vivid imagination grew into a universe. Jessica’s inspiration is drawn from robust daily experiences and spans across sounds from the 80s, trap, indie, chanteuse, and unadulterated pop.
Not only a gifted singer/songwriter, Jessica is also a producer who assembles her own solo music whilst also collaborating with other producers and musicians to realise her vision. Jessica Winter was heavily involved with the writing and production of Jazmin Bean’s debut album Worldwide Torture, which has amassed over 100M streams across all streaming platforms since it was released on November 11th 2020. The ‘Saccharine’ music video is currently on 41M views, also produced by Jessica.
Her other collaborations include producing Brodka’s recent single ‘Game Change’ (with the video accumulating over 1.5M views), Lauren Auder, Sundara Karma, Walt Disco, PREGOBLIN (Fat White Family’s Alex Sebley and Jessica Winter), Giungla, and LuckyMe artists CID RIM and S-Type.
