Exclusive Premiere: Watch Jessicka’s New Video For “Broke & Drunk”

We’re thrilled to be premiering Vancouver-based singer-songwriter Jessicka’s new video for “Broke & Drunk”. Check it out below!

The time-honoured admonition to “write what you know” might be a cliché, but there’s a lot of wisdom in it. The most powerful, emotionally resonant work usually comes from artists who pour details of their own lives into what they create. Such is the case with Jessicka, who describes the overarching themes of her new EP, Uh Oh (out Oct. 13th, 2017 via Light Organ Records) as “Coming of age mixed with coming to terms with reality.”

In spite of their sometimes heady and dark lyrical content, Jessicka’s songs are buoyed by propulsive rhythms and sharp hooks. Left-of-centre influences (think Fiona Apple and St. Vincent) rub up against Jessicka’s unabashed love of pop music, and the results are as visceral as they are cerebral.

Produced by Brad Ferguson, who also contributes limber bass lines throughout, Uh Oh features contributions from some of the Vancouver music scene’s top players, including violinist Jesse Zubot, drummer John Raham, keyboardist Chris Gestrin, and Mother Mother members Ryan Guldemond and Ali Siadat (on guitar and drums, respectively).
