London-based artist Brijs reinterprets Jai Paul’s 2012 demo “Jasmine” by adding his own disco flair to it. Shimmering like a blissful disco ball during the late vulnerable hours of the night, “Jasmine” takes you into a bittersweet dance with both love and anxiety. If you ever been in love with someone who was just too good to be true, this is it:
“I can’t speak for Jai,” said Brijs, “but for me this song came to represent insecurity in two relationships with people who were way out of my league. I wanted to frame that bittersweet place between the flattery of the attention from that person we are infatuated with and the anxiety of believing they deserve better. The song speaks to an underdog in love.”
The song is from Brij’s upcoming debut album, which is currently in the works. The 27-year-old Londoner broke into the scene with his debut EP Friends, which was released back in 2015. Since then his works have been featured in commercials and films.
