100% Joviale: the otherworldly singer about to take off

The North Londoner takes inspiration from Greek mythology for new track Taste Of The Heavens.

Joviale is the celestial musician with a fresh take on pop. Her beguiling aesthetic and matching whimsical sound (drawn from her love of meditation, botanicals and dance) is slowly building the London artist a loyal fan base – one that will no doubt increase following the release of her upcoming, Bullion-produced EP Crisis.

In anticipation, Joviale has just dropped another single from the project. A Taste Of The Heavens is an intoxicating mix of electronic beats, drawn-out synth sounds and mythological lyricism. Taking its inspiration from the Greek legend of Narcissus, the rising singer croons about people’s obsessions with their own reflection, dancing ethereally against a meadow backdrop in the video.
