Jaxxee Wants You Gone

Trip-hop and soul get close in the Victoria artist's darkly cathartic single & video.


Jaxxee distances herself from the past in her impactful and cathartic new single and video Gone — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

Blending elements of trip-hop and soul in just the right proportions, the Victoria singer-songwriter’s debut release pays homage to ’90s Bristol trip-hop and classic soul — while adding contemporary electronic elements an aura of empowerment. With lyrics that tackle the intricate emotions of frustration, love, and sorrow, Jaxxee poses a poignant question in a voice as deep as the emotions evoked: “Have you ever felt so fragile?”

“This musical journey is about finding my voice,” she says. “Having an opinion and not just being a people pleaser. Pushing myself to be out of my comfort zone and vulnerable. Gone was the first song I ever shared with anyone.”

Mixed and mastered in San Francisco by Grammy-nominated Count (aka Mikael Eldridge) and engineered and produced by award winner Neil James Cooke-Dallin, Gone conveys an empowering message, urging individuals to release relationships that have completed their chapters and no longer contribute positively to their journey:

“Face to face 20 years later
Girl he’s the one who made you small
I won’t excuse your indiscretions
Won’t give you any piece of me
Hey diddler, lock your door.”

The official video unveils a mesmerizing contemporary dance performance, showcasing the artistry of her 14-year-old daughter. This representation is Jaxxee’s ode to her inner child, offering a glimpse into the shadows of her early years. Drawing inspiration from iconic figures like Carole King, Aretha Franklin and Erykah Badu, as well as the resonances of Portishead, En Vogue and Black Pumas, Jaxxee exudes an entrancing blend of moodiness and sensuality.
