30 seconds interview: J L F E

jfle music

Joey Edwards has been releasing home brewed electronics and wonky tape experiments under the J L F E moniker since 2015, aided by a £10 Yamaha keyboard and a decent set of lungs.

The London noisenik beefs up his weird strain of outsider pop with a greedy smattering of sub bass and warped tin can beats.

It all adds an unsavoury waft of clubby excitement to his vocal acrobatics and brings an ominous new angle to his hooky melodies.

On latest track Shy Lovers, the ex-guitarist from indie troupe Casimir is obviously in his element, letting loose the full might of his junk shop studio for an almighty crescendo. It’s thrilling, chilling and utterly addictive.

Hooked from about 10 seconds in, we thought we’d better catch up with the fella to find out what’s going on in that overactive brain of his…

I first started making music because…
My dad bought me some rad music gear a long time ago.

I have been making music since…
I were a nipper.

My music is…
Flavoursome.

You’ll like my music if you listen to…
It.

My favourite venue is…
The Louisiana, Bristol.

It colours everything in.

A drum kit.

Richard Osman.

To try me out, listen to my track…
Winter Rain, my biggest banger from way back when (or Shy Lovers for some hot newness).

Better friends with my neighbours.

In 10 years’ time I want to be…
An astronaut.
