Nite Jewels' "Boo Hoo", the first single from upcoming LP Liquid Cool, is our Song Of The Day.
The Los Angeles native, née Ramona Gonzalez, has produced and performed the entire LP herself. “I put all my gear - including my 8 track - in a walk-in closet,” Gonzalez says of the creative process, “I had left my label and was back in my element. I felt like I had found my identity again.”
"Boo Hoo" is a sparkling three-and-a-half minutes of dark, alluring electro-pop. It's strewn with glorious melodic fragments and golden-plated vocal hooks - this is the kind of song that gets embedded in your noggin from the first listen - but also floats off into the stratosphere like classic Grimes cuts. Hypnotic, harmonic layers all congeal to form a shapeshifting track bursting with brilliance - it's an exciting look at Nite Jewel's next chapter.
Liquid Cool is out 10 June via hew own imprint Gloriette. It follows 2012's One Second Of Love.
