London-based Australian, Grammy-credited singer & songwriter Jess Chalker is set to release her stunning debut solo full length album Hemispheres on November 5 via her own imprint 528 Records. Today, she shares her latest single, “Cynical.” The moody, alt-pop gem sees Chalker’s vocals blaze atop sultry guitars, with brooding piano lines that underpin themes of seduction and conflicted relationships.
Previous album release ‘Stupid Trick’ (along with its stunning video clip) is currently one of the most downloaded tracks on Australian community radio, with teaser single, ‘Don’t Fight It’ charting at #1 on Hype Machine. Both were called out by The Guardian in its list of best new Australian songs.
Jess is best known as the frontwoman for Australian new-wave duo We Are The Brave, and has been widely praised for her writing, production and vocals. She’s also a feted collaborator who has worked internationally with artists including Sam Fischer, Vintage Culture, Isamachine, Golden Kimono and Passenger.
Chalker was also part of a GRAMMY-winning team that wrote Lisa Loeb’s lead single on her kids record Feel What U Feel. Recently, she also composed the original track ‘Darkest Hour’ for the Amazon Original show Panic, performed by Tate McRae .
