Scorching Southern California artist Jesse Jo Stark returns with a brand new single titled “Fire Of Love.” Watch here
Driven by an ominous percussive march and guitars drenched in cheeky B-horror charm, her smoky croon enchants as she admits, “I wanna burn in the fire of love.” Co-produced by Dan Taylor of The Heavy and Stark’s guitarist Thomas Hunter, it paves the way for a series of upcoming releases from the glam ghoul goddess.
Once again, she upends any and all expectations… “I wanted to write an anthem with a lady stomp,” she explains. “It tells the story of loss, but it’s empowering & fearless. The woman knows just what she wants from it. Musically, it represents the moment everything clicked between myself, Dan, and Tom. It’s magic.”
Over the past six months, Stark wrote alongside Taylor (from the UK band The Heavy) and Hunter inside of a tiny Bath, UK cabin. Touching back down at home in Los Angeles, she then holed up at Vox Studios for two sessions to record the fruits of these writing trips. Next up, she’ll unveil a yet to be titled 5 track EP on June 1, 2018, with a full-length album dropping in the Fall. Once again, she expands her sound, while sharing a story worthy of a pulp novel — or the big screen.
“It’s a continuous love story, each one a different feeling, a movement of our hearts” she continues. “Some are sweeter, and some a bit more grim.”
Catch her this June as she hits the road with Sunflower Bean on her first domestic tour.
