"“To me a track is only complete once I’ve paired it with a visual --
the way the two activate each other gives me a buzz, and it’s the high I’m chasing every day.”
Justin Swinburne (part of 18+ alongside Samia Mirza) has announced his first solo mixtape as jj18. jj's prayer will arrive on April 20th alongside a 48 minute visual via Houndstooth.
jj's prayer is as political as it is personal - spanning themes of disaster fantasy, the presence of avatars in today's social spheres, identity, and co-dependency and the realities of being alone.
While 18+ was a project that touched on the relationship between two people, jj18 is about an individual attempting to piece together their own narrative of identity in an increasingly fragmented world. To coincide with this announcement, jj18 is sharing the first single and visual from the mixtape. Check out better days.
