Jaz speaks on the inspiration behind the song: “Sometimes during this time period when we can’t be around someone who we have that emotional or intimate connection with, it can be frustrating. ‘Radio’ was my way of channeling those feelings. When push comes to shove we have to just let people know how we feel and what we want. It’s a fun and freeing song.”
In addition to “Radio,” Jaz delivers breezy confident melodies throughout her 7-track EP, whether it be the self-loving opener “Elevated” or her recently released hit “Fresh & Clean” feat. Govana. The singer also practices a positive mindset in order to execute the vision on “Good Over Evil.” The latter part of The Golden Hour is filled with slow burns, allowing her soft sultry vocals and honest songwriting to float over spacious and thoughtful instrumentation. “After 3” is a cosmic exchange between her and rising singer Mortimer, and “Breathe” soothes the soul over light jazz and dub grooves. The EP’s infectious mix of beats are composed by a variety of In.Digg.Nation Collective’s go-to producers including IzyBeats, Natural High, J.L.L., iotosh, Ziah .Push and Protoje.
Jaz Elise explains the deeper meaning behind The Golden Hour: “Photographers speak of this peak, magical moment at sunrise and sunset where the sun casts a golden hue in the sky. Almost like earth and sky is just washed in this mood and feeling- this magic. This is known as the golden hour. The feelings and emotions that manifest for me when I’m looking at the sky during the golden hour is how I feel when listening to this EP and I want people to feel when listening to this body of work. To me it’s like this beautiful collection of feelings and moments. A mood, a meditation, a reflection and a vibe all in one. I have put my all in it. My dreams, my hopes, my feelings, my experiences, my vulnerabilities, my pain. Everything. I am looking forward to sharing these feelings and stories with people. You’re gonna hear the most personal music so far from me and none of it was possible without the other creative hands that came together to make this project possible.”
Jaz Elise is the newest member of In.Digg.Nation Collective’s roster, the record label and management company founded by Grammy-nominated artist Protoje. She joins Lila Iké, Sevana, and Protoje in the label’s joint venture with Six Course Music and RCA Records.
