Following the success of his ‘Theft And The Flight’ EP released earlier this year, JJ Draper is back with another new single, the electrifying ‘Part Of A Piece Of This’. Making a name for himself as an indie folk artist often compared to the likes of Bon Iver and Sufjan Stevens, the new single see’s JJ leaning on his love of Indie Rock, bringing a fresh energy and drive to his sound whilst still retaining the emotional complexity of his other work.
Speaking on the new single JJ Said:
“I have played this track live for nearly 3 years. Always a firm favourite with audiences, I often joke that it proves to my band that I am in fact a “Rockstar” and not a mopey alternative artist. No one is convinced. It is, though, a song that sticks out for its defiant and heavy dynamic.
I felt I had to put it on record as it was such an important song for me in moving on from a period of frustration and confusion. After years of what I felt was chronic mismanagement, the song is a scalding reproach of, well, everything around me and myself. The title refers to my wish to elude expectation, to contradict myself and make music I want to make in the moment.“!
