Influenced by a multitude of artistic expressions; choir works, contemporary art and performance, jazz standards, experimental music, film, literature and classical music, Darkness Falls and former JaConfetti, Favelachic and Dullen & Dyken member, Josephine Philip, has just released her debut solo single “Call My Name”.
Speaking about the importance of the song to her, Josephine explains: “Call My Name” is a song about love and longing. The longing to be together, to be important, to be held, to be adored, to be missed and ultimately, the burning longing for somebody ready to make sacrifices to save you. It’s also a song about standing up for yourself and taking responsibility. One must stay strong even under unbearable conditions and find strength in loss.”
To celebrate the release of her mesmerizing debut track, Josephine is premiering this wonderful live performance of the song with us right here.
Explaining her reason for celebrating the release of her debut solo single with a live performance video, Josephine told us “I decided that I wanted to make a live video because I wanted to show a little something of what I come from. It’s recorded in my studio in Copenhagen with my fantastic producer Lasse Martinussen on sampler and organ and Anders Christensen, who in my opinion is one of the best jazz bass players. The video is made by amazing director Andreas Koefoed and cinematographer Adam Jandrup and I think they caught the feeling of me and who I am.”
Josephine began working on her forthcoming album during the winter of 2019 and the process accelerated in the pandemic year of 2020. The mutual isolation that many of us shared, became a catalyst for the process and both compositions and lyrics resonate the personal and communal experiences of this period – cycles of intense being, joy, despair, love, frustration and careful optimism, shattered by pessimism, and then briefly relieved by hope.
Written and produced in collaboration with Copenhagen based producer and musician Lasse Martinussen, expect further news on the release of the album shortly.
