Emerging singer-composer Jye brings forth his indie-pop musicality into his intimate moments of his personal life with break-up celebration anthem ‘On My Own’.
Indonesia-based Australian artist Jye peels back the layers of heartbreak with new single ‘On My Own’.
Written from the perspective of making it through a failed relationship, the song is a celebration for someone who has happily moved on.
“For brief moments, I dwelled on the past, but I always circled back to how good I felt, how better off I was ‘On my Own’. The whole ‘now I’m sleeping on my own’ thing isn’t me being upset by the fact I was alone – the last thing you can do comfortably when going through something emotional is getting a good night’s sleep, and now I do be sleeping on my own.
At first glance, it comes across as a sad breakup song, (and if anyone connects with it as that then that’s cool with me!). I wrote this when I was feeling really f***ing good, when I had fully moved on from a relationship”.
In the Levi Cranston-directed music video, Jye comments,
“I wanted to achieve something new in a visual canon, to refresh some imagination, and create a reflection. I wanted to funnel the artist’s intentions, affinities and desires through a looking glass, and the Surrealists are the best for this. This piece could not exist without the backing to hire a team of young professionals who came onboard, desensitised my neurotic vision, and excelled. I owe that to Jye, who allowed me to dream and trusted me.“
The song, first premiered on triple j Unearthed, follows mellow banger ‘Sleeping In’. Both singles are taken from his upcoming debut album, due for release next year (2022).
Jye gained attention for his bedroom productions found within his 2017 EP, Disposable Love. The five-track record is home to his best known viral hits ‘Beachy Girl’ and ‘A Shitty Love Song’.
He maintains a steady fanbase throughout Southeast Asia, namely Indonesia, Singapore and Thailand.
