Joesef - Does It Make You Feel Good EP
Published: 1:57 pm, October 29, 2020Words: Martyn Young.

On Joesef’s latest EP the soulful heartthrob cements his potential as one of our most exciting new talents as he subtly and intoxicatingly fleshes his tender lovelorn laments out into glorious pieces of pop perfection.

Tracks like ‘The Sun Is Up Forever’ are full of joyous hope and positivity while a similar ebullience carries through the horn flecked summer rays of ‘Does It Make You Feel Good’. Loyle Carner adds his languid charm to ‘I Wonder Why’ while the skipping effortless bop of ‘Think That I Don’t Need Your Life’ is another example of how Joesef is beating away the blues with carefree exuberance as his falsetto flutters, swoops and soars around an easy-going melody.

There’s a compelling quality to the happy-sad dynamic that drives all of Joesef’s work. There’s longing and desire rippling through his songs that often cuts deep but this collection tempers that sadness with a blossoming hopeful confidence and fearlessness that lifts his music to another level. Joesef’s rise is gathering pace.
