Today, Indie-electronic artist Jai Wolf shares his debut album, The Cure To Loneliness, via Mom + Pop MusicThe story of Jai Wolf is more than his hits, packed dance floors, or co-signs by mega-stars. There's a message within his music. "In my heart, this album is me,"Sajeeb Saha, AKA Jai Wolf, explains. "From the sounds to the lyrics, it's everything that I've always wanted to do."
The Cure To Loneliness finds Jai Wolf completing his evolution from upstart bedroom remixer to future bass DJ to dream-pop artist and builder of lush musical worlds. While still very much a dance floor-focused endeavor, some tracks on thedebut,such as his first double single release, "Lose My Mind" feat. Mr. Gabriel, a transformative alt-pop leaning track, and "Telepathy," a thundering tune that progresses his trademark sound to new heights, conjure the angular songs of The Strokes and Phoenix. For the next single, Jai Wolf collaborated with rising indie-rock artist Day Wave and created "Your Way." "Jackson [Day Wave] was noodling on his guitar and somehow spilled out exactly what I was feeling at the time,"shares Jai Wolf. Weaving melodies through inspiration from the sugary happysad of M83 and CHVRCHES, he wrote his rousing instrumental single "This Song Reminds Me Of You," capturing a summed-together personal journey. "I started this song at an airport at 5 am. I was about to head out on a bus tour and felt really excited, so I wanted the song to capture that exact feeling." The latest track release, "Better Apart" feat. Dresage, is his most exceptionally catchy, danceable, yet personal to date. "It's about accepting that the person you want to be with might not be right for you, and how coming to that conclusion is a difficult process."
Born in Bangladesh, raised in New York City, and inspired by everything from indie-punk to hip-hop, orchestral symphonies, and the Bollywood classics of his parents, Jai Wolf's life and music have been defined by a liminal quality that only a third-culture kid could understand. It's that quality that takes center stage on The Cure To Loneliness, as he slips between references to cultural moments with an ephemeral quality tinged with nostalgia. The sunny melodies and bombastic hooks bely subject matter that often ruminates on loneliness, distance, and a lack of place. This all converges to create an emotional complexity to the music that cuts deeper than the average festival fare. The fact that Jai Wolf never quite fit in used to be fuel for his daydreams; now, it's what makes him one of the most exciting electronic artists of his generation.
Jai Wolf starts his North American tour on April 10, with seven shows, including a night at The Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles, already sold out. Tickets are available to the public now at jaiwolf.co/TCTLtour.
