For a while now we’ve sung the praises of Los Angeles’ Jess Cornelius. The singer songwriter struck a nerve when we were first introduced to her music, and now with her debut album Distance coming in July, it’s easy for us to get more amped. On her new single “Body Memory” she incorporates electronic touches to deliver a soulful and enigmatic tone that’s hard to shake as soon as you hear it.
The song hits immediately. The beat and the synths play perfectly underneath Cornelius’ voice. With dual vocals she delivers plenty of heartfelt tones before keys and a catchy stride roll the track from your ears to your heart. The video has this real futuristic feel that offers a look that’s like a mix of workout video or even a dreamscape. However, the msuic is a bop that outshines and stays with you before it even ends.
You can watch the video above or on YouTube. The single can be streamed wherever you stream music. Distance can be preordered directly from Loantaka Records before its July 24 release.
