Talking about the track, Jade Vincent said:
“It’s about the devastation of a kind of struggle that brings you to your knees, feeling the waves crashing, the tide of emotional distress pulling, pulling you under to the point where you think you’ll drown, against the will, against all reason — but I didn’t. Surrender – Jay Bellerose traced a staggering heart; Acceptance, forgiveness. Strength – rendered in the force of musical ingenuity by Keefus, by David, Jimmy had a key, into some kind of wonder woman facing adversity, braced – BOOM – Overcome – BANG! And now I like to think of it as a reassurance, cause it happens, yes? – but it’ll be alright. Scars to prove it, but it’ll be alright”
A rich, deep album possessing a sound at once hauled out of the silty depths of the past, and simultaneously wholly modern, the heart of the songs lie in Vincent’s sublime voice and lyrics, both possessed of an aching, rich-smoked tone. Very much about love, Heartbreak is more emotionally exposed, more musically, lyrically, and vocally audacious than it’s predecessor “There’s a maturity to Jade’s voice and a maturity to the songs that sounds like this is someone who’s lived, and properly had her heart broken, and is full of love,” says Holmes.
“I felt a little more confident in my stride with this album,” Vincent adds. “I let myself completely go lyrically — and vocally as well. I would sometimes laugh at myself, about where I would go. I’d go high into the world of opera and come back in low. I just threw myself into it and felt uninhibited. It was freeing. And I kept layering, to get to as many emotions as possible. It was like painting: I was layering to add to the immense, vastly wild landscape of music given me from Keefus and David.”
“They’re real feelings and real experiences that I had the guts to finally say, but always ambiguous, this is very important to me.” she explains, “and always about love, one way or another.”
Unloved will be performing ‘Heartbreak’ & a selection of tracks from their previous record at two special Hoxton Hall shows on December 3rd & 5th.
In the meantime the band have provided the songs for Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s acclaimed new series Killing Eve, which started airing on the BBC on September 15th this year. The series has already aired in the U.S. where Sandra Oh has received an Emmy nomination for her lead role.
