If you haven’t heard Jessy Lanza’s 2013 debut album Pull My Hair Back then you might have just wasted the last three years of your life. Easily one of the best independent debuts in recent memory it rarely drops off my playlists. Lanza’s sound is a curious mix of electronica and soul topped off with silky, ethereal vocals – although my description doesn’t really do it justice.
She released a much anticipated follow up this year entitled Oh No and it quickly became one of my albums of the year so far. A few days ago Jessy dropped the title track as a single and the video is stunning. Great music videos are a dying art but Oh No perfectly captures Lanza’s quirky enigmatic spirit in visual form. She’s also riding a really sweet bike in it. Like, really sweet. Check it out, you can thank me later.
