Shares new video "Friendless Necessity". EP 'Psychic Tears' out now!

London-based producer & singer/songwriter Esther Joy is sharing her new video for "Friendless Necessity", a standout track from her recent EP 'Psychic Tears', which is out now. 

Directed by Colin J Smith and edited by Steven Lang, Esther explains the video, "I really wanted the video to characterise the dark feelings the song describes, the fragmented sense of self, trauma, confusion and hurt. There is a simple and primal feel to it, it is stripped of anything material, or even physical, other than myself. I think ultimately the vision was attempting to have an honest and (hopefully) meaningful connection between the music and emotion, and the emotion and viewer."

Shares new single "Friendless Necessity"

Emerging London-based artist Esther Joy is sharing new single "Friendless Necessity" from her new EP. Having written, produced & recorded the entirety of the upcoming record, 'Pyschic Tears' is due out Aug 11th. 

In the words of Esther, "‘Friendless Necessity’ is about the emotional remnants left behind from a bad experience in my life. I’ve written it almost like a love song to the trauma - exploring how at times I can feel lost without it, even though it hurts but how at other times it totally suffocates me. 

The track is ultimately a plea for freedom - but not fully knowing whether it won’t let go of me or I can’t let go of it.”

SHARES NEW VIDEO 'SAMGEL'

After months of hard work we now have a bulletproof solution that gives our customers the best building platform.

oday emerging London-based singer/writer/producer Esther Joy is sharing a new video for her recent single 'Samgel'. Packed with dark, sonic, electronic textures, the track is taken from her upcoming EP 'Psychic Tears',which is due Aug 11th. 

Speaking about the video, Esther said "The track 'Samgel' is based on a dark and primal character that has been a recurring presence in my life. My initial idea was for it to feel like a hostage video where the captor and captive have some crazy invisible joust and transition into each other but in the end it turned out simply as a pure visual portrayal of the characters and myself as narrator in-between them."

Esther Joy doesn't stay in one place for long. Born in Leeds, she grew up in Edinburgh, and has since lived in London, Sheffield, Coventry & is now again in London. 

Having started making music as a teenager on a computer DJ programme, Esther sees music as a way of expressing the things that caused her much distress in her formative years. ‘Most of my teenage years and early 20s were super dysfunctional and I did a great job of royally fucking up" she explains "The thing that pieced me back together was rediscovering making music. I realised that you could build worlds of sound and textures in a computer without ever having to leave your bedroom (which is kind of mind blowing). From then on I taught myself how to produce and began writing electronic music.”
 
Written, recorded and produced by Esther Joy, new EP Psychic Tears, combines dynamic electronics, hard & heavy synth lines and bewitching lyrics, but somehow retains a certain feeling of weightlessness and ethereal emotion, showcasing a fresh sound that has clicked into place for this London-based artist.

She concludes "I couldn’t express myself musically in the way I wanted to for such a long time, and I just wanted someone to swoop in and make it all easy. Never finding those people was the best thing that could have happened because it forced me to get better on my own and now I am now I am just starting to feel like I am sounding like me."  And as Psychic Tears marks the sound of personal self-discovery for Esther Joy, for the London music scene, it also marks a rising star positioning herself firmly on the horizon.

INTRODUCING: ESTHER JOY.

 

Today we’re excited to introduce you to the infectious, dark, electronic sounds of emerging London-based artist Esther Joy, who will release her new EP Psychic Tears on August 11th. The first single from the record ‘Samgel', is streaming online now.
 
Speaking about the single, Esther says “Samgel is the name I use for the dark presence I experience and write about a lot in my music. It is a part of me that has overwhelmed me so much in my life and been the root to most of my darkest moments. I named this track after it because as soon as I wrote that first synth line (the big intense one at the beginning), it was like I had found Samgel”
