Joviale creates music which is a physical assemblage of her cultural soundscape. Creating a scrapbook during the project's writing and recording process, these high fashion editorials and plumes of yarn and brightly coloured threads have manifested themselves into her musicianship.


Injecting her music with the gospel tones of Nina Simone and Aretha Franklin, “Taste Of The Heavens” was transformed from an early demo version of the track, sweeping the musical soundscape with rolling drum patterns, the twinkling of wind chimes floating buoyantly in the gentle wind.

Inspired by the Myth of Narcissus and his enchanting beauty, the single analyses the dangers inflicted by lust and desire: “It’s easy to get trapped in someone else’s projection of themselves based on what you’re looking for or think you want and deserve,” Joviale explains.

“That feeling of obsessional focus becomes what you become dependent on, like whatever substance one needs to function be it: a social/professional situation or your morning routine. It’s easy to become so overtaken by certain habits you don’t realise they exist...until you relieve yourself from them.”

As the breeze rustles by, Joviale is harmonious with the natural landscape in the track's accompanying visuals. Her monochromatic design is punctured with flashes of red, their ornamental beauty blazing beneath the blue skies.

“Taste Of The Heavens” is out today via Blue Flowers, with her debut EP Crisis available from 6 September. Find Joviale on Instagram.
