It’s about time I properly introduce you to JORDY.
I haven’t properly written about the Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter on here just yet, but you most definitely have heard him on a few of my Queer Necessities playlists over the past few years. So, let’s change that now shall we…
JORDY makes infectious, propulsive pop loaded with big hooks, stomping pop beats and heart-on-your-sleeve lyricism, seated somewhere at the table alongside Troye Sivan, Carly Rae Jepsen, LAUV, Astrid S and Betty Who. You know, somewhere right in there.
After dropping his Psycho EP earlier this year, the rising po -prince wasted no time hopping right back in the studio to record a follow-up – and the just released “Lip Locked” is our first taste of what’s to come from his next chapter.
“I chose this as the first single off of the next project because of the huge pop energy and happy sounding production,” JORDY said in a statement to Jon Ali. “Especially during times like right now, I want to make people smile and dance. So I figured this would be the perfect intro to the next era.”
The song is a blissful, pop rush of JORDY‘s signature swooning, full of earnest and heartfelt melodies all about trying to get someone you’re dating to open up a bit more; getting past the surface level stuff.
“‘Lip Locked’ was inspired by a guy I was dating who just wouldn’t open up. Anyone who knows me knows that I am the queen of oversharing; I wanna get past the surface level conversations,” JORDY said about the single. “So when I wrote this, I was explaining how much I liked this guy to my co-writers, but if it was going to turn into anything serious, I needed him to let loose a bit. I thrive off of intimate and deep connections and conversations, so if your lips are locked, it’s not gonna work for me.”
Like the best of JORDY‘s catalog, the song is slickly produced and filled with sweet, addictive hooks. I’m done being Lip Locked! He’s got the goods and it’s time y’all took notice.
JORDY’s new single “Lip Locked” is available on all streaming platforms now!
