ASHA JANE RELEASES NEW EP

26th September 2017

BIMM Bristol graduate Asha Jane released her brand new three track EP entitled “Innocence | Experience | Reflection” this week, and celebrated with a sell-out release show in a top secret venue. 

The three-track release kicks off with the beautifully laid-back jazz vibes of “Sigh-Wren”, which recently received a glowing review on Adam Walton’s show on BBC Radio Wales. Speaking of the track, Walton said “I could listen to this all day, and very nearly did! Asha Jane’s voice is so warm and all-encompassing.”

We agree with his sentiments exactly and are extremely impressed by the Songwriting graduate’s latest studio efforts, which were recorded at Queens Road Studios, Bridgend. The opening track’s subject matter plays on ideas surrounding female sexuality and the myth of “sirens”, who are said to lure sailors to their doom by singing sweetly from the rocks.

Speaking about the release, Asha had this to say:

“Innocence | Experience | Reflection is a three track EP with themes around mythology that illustrate some of my own stories of realisation and maturing. I’m kind of obsessed with three’s so there are a lot of parallel three’s present in general. The artwork, especially the cool animated Gif version,  is a collaboration  between me and an illustrator called Charlotte O’hare who I went to school with and relates to imagery from the songs. I recorded the EP in Wales with another old friend for his uni project, and didn’t realise at the time it would end up being my first EP, but here we are!”
