Soft and soulful with touches of folk, “Saffron Yellow” is about the battle not to give in on the things that make us anxious but to instead take a moment to discover the excitement of everything again. On his remix, Fischerhighlights the blend of folk, soul, and jazz that drew him to the track, keeping subtle hints of old-school Afrobeat mixed in with contemporary Afrobeats sounds and New York grit; “I looped one of Bryony’s vocal ad-libs, filtered it and used it for the dance breakdown near the end”, he explains. With previous supporters including Gilles Peterson (BBC 6Music), Antony Valadez(KCRW), Jazz FM, Rich Medina, Soulection and Darker Than Wax, Jesse Fischer has previously worked with the likes of Jaime Woods and Sly5thAve.
Bridging the gap between New York and London, Steam Down’sWonky Logic, aka Dwayne Kilvington, puts an illuminating spin on the fiercely powerful “All About Life”.Blending Jarman-Pinto’s soulful vocals with jazzy electronics and crunk beats, Wonky Logic showcases his space-age synth skills to create an unsettled post-funk track that embodies the restlessness of the lyrics. Set against the current climate of political unease and increased tensions in society the track was written by Jarman-Pinto as a source of comfort; “there was a lot of negative news about immigration and tension in society,” she explains “I’d say I wrote it to reassure myself.” Famed for their Deptford residency, Steam Down has quickly become a household name in London’s music scene, recently receiving two Jazz FM Awards, selling out London’s Jazz Café and performing on Later With… Jools Holland.
“Saffron Yellow” and “All About Life” are taken from Bryony Jarman-Pinto’s debut album Cage and Aviary, released earlier this year. Written over the course of three years, the album ties personal reflection to wider social issues, giving an intimate insight into what it means to come of age in today’s world. Sophisticated songwriting is brought to life with Bryony’s harmonious vocals, layered with jazz, soul, and elements of folk, creating a melodic sound that has charmed major tastemakers across the board.
