PREMIERE: Jovel ‘The Void’ EP

Life can be rough. And sometimes Blink 182 isn’t exactly the solution to cheer you up. Sometimes you just need to go deeper into that struggle to come out through the other side. The new EP from London artist Jovel will help you through that journey.

The Void is a 13 minute project that served as a journal for Jovel while he was attempting to find himself while others brushed him off. He felt a type of emptiness that afforded him the opportunity to put his pain to paper and free himself. He sings and raps about depression, drug addiction, single mothers, and the way so many of us get sucked into social media. While you might not be juggling the same issues, the sentiments shouldn’t be foreign. The production from Neil Comber (M.I.A., Django Django) ranges from wispy R&B to acoustic guitar power chords to cover the range of dark emotions you might be going through.

Stay tuned for a music video from Jovel coming sooner than later. If you can’t wait until then, check out his Instagram for short visual clips that culminate into a short film.
