Scottish singer-songwriter and producer JORDAN. has announced his brand new EP Echoes: Volume One set for release on 12th March 2021 on Spotify and Apple Music/iTunes. Featuring the hauntingly beautiful lead single Anything Can Happen, JORDAN. explores his intimate and unapologetically honest song-writing with this release. He spoke with The Fountain about the EP in more depth as well as the venues he is keen to play live again.
TF: You have a new EP coming out, Echoes : Volume One, what has the reception been like to the announcement so far?
To the select few I’ve played the project to, the reception has been amazing thus far. More so than anything I’ve put out previously. It’s really helped me find my footing on where I am artistically and what seems to be working both in terms of “public consumption” and what I’m 100% confident in. I’ve let a few of my friends, family and my partner hear it and they really like it. I’m pretty proud of that.
TF: How would you sum up the record in one sentence?
It’s my most melancholic and intimate material to date.
TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, after this release?
I’ve got a few other projects in the pipeline that I’m readying for release. I’ve got an EP with my close friend and collaborator, Mastaki. We’ve been working on a joint project under the name “WARDRUMS” which is all loud, abrasive, melodic, experimental hip-hop. I’m also in the demo stages of working on the next two Echoes instalments so I’m hoping to have Volume Two out by the end of the year. A few singles coming within the next couple of months. Oh and doing a couple of livestream events which I’m looking forward to. But mainly focusing right now on spending time with my partner and our newborn daughter.
TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live, where is the next place you look most forward to gigging?
There’s this small cafe tucked away in Leith, Edinburgh called Sketchy Beats that’s always a blast to play at. You can fill the venue area downstairs with literally 10-15 people and it’s always a blast playing there. The staff there are so nice and the atmosphere is a means for a night to remember. In terms of the next place, I’m really eager to do some shows in Glasgow whenever that chance arrives. One venue off the top of my head, The Hug & Pint.
