British Indian artist, Jasmine Thakral crafts dreamy, melancholic indie pop that acts as a soundtrack for a late-night journey home. Raised by the holy trinity of songwriters; Taylor Swift, Lorde and Lana Del Rey Jasmine takes inspiration from the poeticism of Joni Mitchell, the DIY origins of Dodie and the Hindi music her Indian-born parents played.
Jasmine has just released her latest single ‘Vampire,’ a horror-inspired track that serves as a reminder to avoid toxic people who drain our energy. She said,
“‘Vampire’ is a song about when you meet someone who’s an ‘energy vampire’ and drains you of all your energy. It’s an indie pop tune with horror movie lyrics. It’s set during my year abroad in Canada. Sonically I was inspired by indie pop songs by artists like BENEE, Remi Wolf and Still Woozy. I think it’s fun to have an upbeat production that contrasts with more downbeat lyrics.I had a great time collaborating on the song with Natti and Jack – who are both from a band I love called Fickle Friends.” Watch here:
With regular releases and a growing following, Jasmine’s music is becoming a go-to for those seeking a melodic escape from the mundane. Her previous singles have garnered attention from BBC Radio, Rolling Stone India, Jammerzine, and Kajal Magazine, and recently, she was invited to perform a ‘Live Lounge’ set at BBC Introducing Sussex and Surrey.
