J3M has shared two new visuals for his single “Moonless.” today. The track is lifted from J3M’s forthcoming EP, AFRONAUT, due out in the summer of 2022. “MOONLESS is about the anxiety that can take place when strong feelings come up,” says J3M of the song, which he wrote on piano, and later co-produced with Mike Tompa. “In AFRONAUT’s case, the Alien he’s fallen in love with gets cold feet and disappears overnight. In a panicked whirlwind, the force and sudden speed of the Alien’s ship pulls the moon and stars right out of the sky. Alone and enveloped in the earth’s darkness, AFRONAUT climbs up onto his roof each night. He sings to the sky, hoping the alien will hear, return the stars and moon and come back to earth.” To follow and sing along, check out the Moonless lyric video, created by Gabriel Altrows and Gergana Peeva,
J3M describes AFRONAUT’s creation happening by accident, as he started another project that had a completely different sound, but it didn’t feel right.
“Super disappointed and confused, I put that project on hold. I went to the UK on a songwriting mission just before the pandemic. That didn’t work out either. But in a way it did, because I ended up writing several songs with some very talented friends while out there,” J3M expands.
J3M has shared the stage with Tanika Charles, TiKA, Zaki Ibrahim, Amaal, The OBGMs, James Baley and more, both locally and internationally. Sharing stages with Kehlani, Weezer, Brandy, July Talk and the Arkells. J3M is no stranger to the industry. He’s played everywhere from POP Montreal, Toronto Pride, Afropunk Paris, Osheaga, SXSW and more.
