Listen to JESSA on She Makes Music



Guitarist, koto player and singer-songwriter Jessica Stuart has become JESSA, smashing layers of playful strings and vocals into a sometimes dancy, sometimes moody indie-pop package, singing about trying to keep the joy in daily life while navigating this weird world and all it’s curve-balls. “I’m new to dating again after a long relationship, so I’m having a bunch of unfamiliar feelings, like becoming fixated on my phone when I’m hoping to hear back from someone I’m into, even though I know better. My new single is about figuring out how to get over our own bad tendencies, even if it seems silly – in this case, just put the phone on ‘Airplane Mode.'” The song is taken from Simple Songs, JESSA’s debut indie-pop album out on September 11. With lots of fun guitar layers and dreamy vocals, producer Devon Henderson helped give the song a summertime chill vibe. JESSA continues: “Although this song might seem like it’s about pining for someone, ‘Airplane Mode’ is actually about learning how to overcome our own shit, with whatever tricks we need to play on ourselves to do it, and reclaiming our peace of mind.”
