JVCK JAMES RELEASES VIDEO FOR 'WINE'
Today sees teenage prodigy JVCK JAMES release the new video for his single 'WINE', the third track revealed by the hotly tipped R&B newcomer this year following previous releases 'On My Way' and 'Fears' earlier in the summer. Working with Toronto-based collaborator LordQuest (SZA, ScHoolboy Q) for the first time, 'Wine' finds Jvck in imperious form and further cements his position as one of the rising stars of UK R&B. The new psychedelia tinged visuals continue the narrative from Jvck's previous video 'Fears', once again directed by upcoming talent Elliot Smith. You can watch the video for 'Wine' HERE.
Explaining his inspiration while writing 'Wine', Jvck articulates "At such a young age we all make mistakes. Sometimes that's a good thing and just part of growing up; over time we age like a fine wine!". Jvck's stock has been steadily rising in recent months, picking up spins at radio from the likes of Mistajam, Jamz Supernova, Julie Adenuga and Phil Taggart, while also recording an incredible Spotlight Session for BBC 1Xtra's DJ Target at the legendary Maida Vale studios. Jvck has also picked up love from artists such as Ella Mai & Chronixx, not to mention the likes of i-D, Noisey and MTV too.
Jvck debuted his live show in late July at Dalston's Servant Jazz Quarters, impressing the sold-out crowd with his remarkable vocal range. He is now set to support James Vickery at The Jazz Cafe in September before joining rising star Mahalia on her nationwide UK tour in October, including a date at Brixton Electric.
