KAWALA have dropped their first new music of 2022, ‘Jesse C’mon’.
The track is the latest taster of the band’s debut album ‘Better With You’, which is set to arrive on 4th March.
“Jesse is a character we made up who represents and embodies all the people in the world who intentionally lie all the time” the band explains. “Everybody knows a Jesse.”
“When we first wrote the song, the thing that stood out about it was how it instinctively made you start bopping your head. And as we listened back to what we’d made, one of us would start bopping his head, and suddenly we were all doing it” they continue, speaking about the NYSU directed video that accompanies the song. “We wanted to showcase how infectious this was through the main characters’ consistent head motion throughout the video. Through the ingenious vision of NYSU, we were able to balance this with the constantly evolving chaos all around him. we wanted to make it hard to keep your eyes off it!”
‘Jesse C’Mon’ follows up on previously revealed album cuts ‘Searching’ and ‘Ticket To Ride’. “We’ve always been a little outsider-y,” says the band’s Jim Higson on the record. “We don’t fit the pop narrative; we don’t quite fit the usual band narrative. We’re really happy to be taking up that space, but I think this is our flag in the sand moment. The album really says: This is us, here we are!”
