Joesef will release his debut album ‘Permanent Damage’ on January 13th.
Glasgow-based pop voice Joesef has built a vastly individual voice across a flurry of projects, fusing an incredible thirst for melody with a profound sense of lyrical honesty.
His debut album ‘Permanent Damage’ offers a full widescreen panorama of his life, with Joesef digging deep into his own experiences. A musical autobiography, it’s intended as the work of a spirit in motion, continually seeking out fresh ideas.
I’ve always found it quite difficult to find peace in myself. Always moving, always thinking, always dreaming, always searching. Until I started making music it was the more destructive aspects of my personality that took over in order to cope with an ever changing landscape of feeling I couldn’t maintain control of.
‘Permanent Damage’ is about fighting in the street on the way home, kissing in the taxi, having nothing to say in the morning. holding grief in your hands and carrying it with you indefinitely. There is a permanence in what we went through together and it’s affected the way I carry myself and the way I see the world. It’s about grieving for a version of myself that I don’t think I’ll ever be able to get back.
New song ‘Joe’ is out now, a powerful return with a moving video that deceits a queer love story – tune in now.
