JASMYN – ” Crystal Ball “

Posted: February 4, 2022 in MUSIC

Former Weaves frontperson Jasmyn is back with another new solo single, “Crystal Ball.” “Crystal Ball” is a unique, texturally lush anthem. The accompanying video is full of animations of two statues floating in the water, kissing to the driven tune. “I was writing about being afraid of moving into the future but also getting excited by it,” Jasmyn explains of “Crystal Ball.” “I knew that I had to change my life and follow my heart in order to evolve and be happy. I think I leaned on nature to do that. Staring at the sun go down, watching birds just float. Nature seems to move without regret or worry. I wanted to write about leaning on my intuition and charging forward into the future with what felt right. I was hit with fresh love and fresh air and a new beginning — it was exciting. The song was co-written with Los Angeles-based producer John Congleton, Burke has teamed with synth player Zac Rae and the amazingly impeccable drummer Joey Waronker on the track.

I think this song is about the concept of having a personal renaissance. Looking inward and finding that consistency for yourself even if it means letting go sometimes. Happiness is on the other side.”

Jasmyn is the new solo project created by Jasmyn Burke, former singer-songwriter and frontwoman of the critically acclaimed Canadian band Weaves. Having received two Polaris Music Prize shortlists, two JUNO nominations for Alternative Album of the Year and two SOCAN Song writing Prize nominations, Burke has established herself as one of Canada’s most exciting and fresh voices.
