Discovery: Jade Empress

Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, Jade Empress is a singer songwriter in the mould of Lana Del Rey and Florence and the Machine. Meaningful, melancholic lyrics are delivered through beautiful vocals and atmospheric instrumentals in her new track Golden Hours.

By Graeme Smith

Golden Hours is something of an alternative take to a love story. It’s a story of love, but resistance to being in love, beautifully articulated through a personal narrative and brought to life through memory and imagery.

For Jade, music is an escape from the intensity of being a frontline doctor, but it’s clear that’s it’s not just a hobby for her. The professionalism shines through in Golden Hours’ composition. It’s a song that will grab you and stay with you. You can listen to it below.
