Creation is, of course, within any artist’s nature, but this notion holds perhaps even particularly true for Jordi Up Late. Having attended the Rhode Island School of Design, she shifted coasts to L.A. in hopes of pursuing her passions.
Music was not her first foray into the arts, as Jordi is already a successful animator, having worked with the likes of 6LACK. However, it’s risen as her great passion. With influences ranging from James Blake to Gorillaz, she’s already emerging as a unique, immediate voice within Electropop.
As she prepares her debut EP – along with an intended LP for 2021 – she’s released her latest single, “Wasting Away”, which we’re very pleased to premiere here at Beats Per Minute.
Befitting her locale, and biting its thumb boldly at the state of our dreary Earth, it’s a sun-drenched, bedroom-pop-like ballad, as charming as it is addicting. Forget earworm, this tune burrows far deeper.
Speaking on the song Jordi shares, “‘Wasting Away’ is about a flirtationship. Every once in a while we have a friend who gives us one too many lingering glances and a few too many compliments for platonics. Teasing can be fun but sometimes frustrating if you are waiting for the other shoe to drop but it never does and meanwhile, you are ‘Wasting Away‘.”
Check out “Wasting Away” below, and stay tuned for Jordi Up Late’s debut EP very soon.
