Jess Ribeiro has cemented herself as one of the Australian underground’s most engaging and unpredictable creative forces and her evolution is only just beginning.
A shape-shifting musical enigma, the near-untouchable quality of Ribeiro’s recorded output is astonishingly consistent and the wait for new music is always worthwhile.
Ribeiro’s new single, ‘In Love With This Place’, is a Synth doom pop song written in the Otways on the Great Ocean Road at the start of 2020 before Melbourne went into its first lockdown.
“Deeply disturbed by the state of our world I sat by the water and imagined politicians “doing time” in nature. What if decisions were made only after you had conversed with the natural world? What if re-entering into a sincere relationship with the land would support making thoughtful and lasting choices? I tripped out imagining Donald Trump and Scott Morrison getting naked, walking around barefoot on the green grass together, holding hands, feet dangling in the water, blissing out changing their ways.”
