JSOUL and B.Jamelle are ready. United together as JSOUL x B.Jamelle aka The Mellowdisiac, the multitalented pair of DMV artists have been working on their collaborative EP entitled Mellowdisiac for some time, and its release is imminent. The project landed on our radar with its first single “Really Love” this past spring with a feature from rapper Jamil Honesty. Now the duo are dropping their second taste of the collection with the song “To Flower” and its accompanying visual in a SoulBounce exclusive world premiere.
“To Flower” sounds like a soothing summer breeze and is just as tranquil. B.Jamelle’s voice floats on JSOUL’s dreamy production blending live instruments with a sample. She sings, “Know that I’ll get along, I can journey alone / Just help me find my way / I know that I’ll have it all, I can find my own song / Just help me find my pace.” Jamelle seeks a peaceful journey as she grows and realizes her full potential.
“[‘To Flower’] taps into the human experience, which is surrounded by doubts, fear and uncertainty. Ultimately to overcome these things is the true measure of our growth,” JSOUL x B.Jamelle stated about the track. “With growth comes new perspective and the ability to finally bloom in some of the most beautiful and abstract ways.”
For the “To Flower” music video, director/animator Shawn Johnson uses mixed media to make the single’s cover art come alive. Overlapping circles of colorful flowers move in opposite directions and expand on screen to mimic growth with a human heart in the center. The vibrant background is in constant motion behind footage of B.Jamelle singing, photos of JSOUL and other animated imagery making for a dazzling display.
JSOUL x B.Jamelle’s numerious talents blend together flawlessly on “To Flower.” The single drops on Friday, August 5th, but you can luxuriate in the audio and get mesmerized by the visual right now with our exlusive first listen and look below.
“To Flower” and “Really Love” will be included on JSOUL x B.Jamelle’s Mellowdisiac, which is shaping up to be quite an exciting collection of music. The nine-song EP will be released on Friday, August 19th and be available for purchase on JSOUL’s Bandcamp page.
