ARTIST ON THE RISE JOSEPHINA RELEASES FIERY NEW SONG ‘PLEASURE AND PAIN’
Los Angeles, CA (December 8th, 2017) – Alt-pop singer/songwriter, Josephina, releases the official music video and audio for her new song “Pleasure and Pain” today – watch HERE; listen on Spotify / iTunes worldwide (links below). The track was co-written by Josephina and GRAMMY-nominated songwriter and producer Steve Daly, who has previously worked with Pink, Christina Aguilera, and Charlie Wilson. Daly also produced the song. The trippy visual for “Pleasure and Pain” showcases Josephina’s dark pop style. Alluring and transfixing, the video follows the cryptic dissolution of the songstress’ relationship as her romance slowly fizzles out. Dreamy clips of Josephina and her love interest are weaved between edgy, hypnotic shots of the singer on her own, as she experiences the ups and downs of her relationship.
The song is an intense piece of pop laced with beautifully detailed lyrics that showcase her captivating vocals. “It’s a breakup song but it’s about the yin and yang, the happiness and the sadness of the relationship,” says Josephina. “I believe in telling the whole story of whatever’s affecting me, whether it’s positive or negative, and trying to find those moments that people can genuinely connect with.” The song “Pleasure and Pain” gives listeners a taste of what’s to come. Her debut EP, out early 2018, features Josephina’s original songwriting and intertwines in elements of electronic music, hip-hop, and R&B with her alt-pop sound.
