Jessy Lanza returns with new single “Lick in Heaven”
Jessy Lanza is back with her long-awaited first official transmission since her brilliant 2016 record Oh No. "Lick in Heaven", out today on Hyperdub, was co-written with her regular collaborator/partner Jeremy Greenspan of Junior Boys, and it's an infectiously bouncy, bubbling pop banger that does a spectacular job of masking some frankly terrifying rage that Lanza is apparently hiding just below the surface. "This song is about being angry with people and not knowing what to do about it," Lanza says of the new track. "I find that when I’m a certain combo of sad and angry I reach a point of provocation where I can’t stop myself from going nuclear.” Yikes. Anyway, it's a damn bop, and it's accompanied by another dope video from another frequent Lanza collaborator, director Winston H Case.
