“Poison Fruit” is the first cut from Jojee’s forthcoming sophomore EP, following debut release Low Key last year. Teased on social media with a time-lapse video of a decaying banana (because, of course), it’s a confident slice of bass-heavy pop. The singer’s unmistakably rich vocal is punctuated throughout by an emphatic brass section. It’s quite a departure from the laid-back feel of its predecessors, but the sonic progression marks out a clear and determined path for what’s to come.

"I went through a bit of a rough patch in both my personal life and with my music,” Jojee explains, of the time the track came into being. “Writing ‘Poison Fruit’ was like turning over a new leaf. Not only was I able to get the sour emotions I'd been feeling out, but it brought me back to the roots of why I began songwriting. I would say this is Chapter One in my new book."

“Poison Fruit” is out now.
