Chilli Jesson shares new track ‘Harness’

Chilli Jesson has shared another new track.

‘Harness’ completes the former Palma Violets frontman’s EP, ‘Carolina Reaper’, alongside previously-released numbers ‘Gucci Wants Their Suit Back’, ‘Thick Skin’ and the record’s title track.

“Harness is an unashamed gift to my long-term musical partner,” explains Chilli. “It was written immediately after Rupert [Greaves, collaborator] had recorded a beautiful piano piece during a visit to his parents’ dusty old upright. The composition reminds me of early Lana Del Rey, and also modern elements of the Succession theme song. The lyrics quickly bled onto the page and live violins were added, which was a first for us. I was so inspired by the original piano piece that Rupert sent over and thought it held so much magic within it that I felt that magic needed to make it onto the record. At the end of the track, where all the other instruments drop out and the piano is left bare, if you listen closely you can hear him competing with the swirling sound of the end of a washing machine cycle, which in turn felt like it should be the closing track to the Carolina Reaper EP.”
