Hannah Jadagu

Today, Thursday, September 22nd, 2022 marks the release of Hannah Jadagu’s (pron. juh-dah-goo) “Say It Now,” a new single and official video directed by Jade De Brito.  The song was written and arranged by Hannah, co-produced by Max Robert Baby and Hannah, and mixed by Marcus Linon in Paris.

Hannah says of the song and video, which was shot in Paris this past summer, “‘Say It Now’ is my sort of inner reflection on where things have gone wrong in my past interactions and relationships with other people. Sonically and lyrically, I feel as though this song signifies me venturing into a new world that is even more intense and vulnerable.” She continues, “Making this video was so special because I got to make it during my first visit to Paris. We shot it in about 2 days, showcasing a sort of “day in the life” where I do studio work and get to go around the city. It’s a nice contrast to the lyrical content because there’s truly no time to be sad in Paris.”

“Say It Now“ is Hannah’s lone release for 2022, but keep an eye out for an as-yet-to-be-titled full length LP, due out sometime in 2023.

Hannah is also announcing a run of UK and EU support and festival dates for November 2022.

In July Jillian Medford aka Ian Sweet released her newest EP Star Stuff on Polyvinyl. Star Stuff has four tracks including the title track “Star Stuff”, “Fight”, “Fight (DAGR Remix)”, and “Die A Million Times.”

“‘DIE A MILLION TIMES’ is about being stuck in a negative thought loop that you know you could escape from if you really tried but you’re not willing to let go yet,” says Medford. “A thought loop that is so painful and destructive to your brain but yet you want to keep replaying certain memories over and over. I was living in a fantasy world about a relationship that didn’t end up working out and kept inviting in the thoughts and memories that I knew would continue to destroy me but I wasn’t ready to move on from them yet in order to help myself.”

Star Stuff follows Sweet’s 2021 full length album Show Me How You Disappear. Ian Sweet has previously released Shapeshifter & Crush Crusher. Ian Sweet has a buzzy, light sound mixed with thought provoking lyrics about the pain of relationships.

Ian Sweet is wrapping up her tour with a Denver date. She has been on the road since late July. 2021’s FEMMUSIC Best Indie Artist Bnny is opener.

IAN SWEET (the project of LA artist Jilian Medford) presents a new single/video, “FIGHT,” today via Polyvinyl.

It’s her second standalone release following “f*ckthat” and her critically acclaimed album Show Me How You Disappear, and precedes her North American and EU/UK tour.

Medford elaborates on the track: “Spending everyday with someone, doing everything together, not knowing if the world was going to end. Leaning on someone with such heaviness, putting our entire weight and being onto each other because it’s all we had. The song plays into both the monotony of the relationship and the catastrophe that I went through after it ended. I felt so content in the relationship but then my entire world fell apart when it ended and I didn’t know how to pick myself back up and move forward.”

September 29th, 2021

On the heels of what’s already been a banner year, IAN SWEET (the project of LA artist Jilian Medford) releases a new single/video, “f*ckthat,” via Polyvinyl, and announces a North American tour.

Medford elaborates on the track: “My phone causes me a lot of anxiety! I really only like to use it to take videos and pictures of my dog. This song is about not wanting to answer calls anymore and wishing I could just throw it out the window and disassociate from its evil/stress inducing technology.” The self-directed video was edited by previous collaborator Will Duncan.

Earlier this year, IAN SWEET released her latest album, the triumphant Show Me How You Disappear. In spring 2022, IAN SWEET will hit the road in support of Show Me How You Disappear.
