Jess Ball – “Upside Down” single
“You don’t wanna hear it, you just wanna tell. Not even for a minute, it could give you hell. But even if you tried, I would not have believed. ‘Cause, it’s clear in your eyes that your words aren’t what you mean. You don’t wanna know it, about what’s going on. Your smiles only show that there’s something going wrong. Keeping up your act and fooling all your friends because you can distract them with what’s only pretend.” – lyrics
‘Upside Down’ tells an intriguing tale about a young woman who shares a challenging relationship with her significant other. Apparently, she sees things for what they are, but her companion sees things for what they aren’t. Therefore, they are not on the same page. Later, she reveals that she’s tired of the tricks, façade, and mind games that her partner is playing.
“You just undermine, it’s getting to the point of exhausting.”
“This song is basically about gaslighting and those who refuse to acknowledge the good in others for their own benefit. A person should never feel like they must compromise their own accomplishments in order to make other people feel comfortable with themselves.” – Jess Ball explained
Jessica Ball started to explore her musical interests in 2009 at the age of 11. Since then, she has developed a pop-inspired style. Raised in a rather musical family, Ball had been influenced by artists such as Jack Johnson and Missy Higgins, listened to by the family on road trips. However, during her schooling, Ball was inspired by her singing coach to explore different styles of music that allowed her to find her attraction to pop music.
Now, Ball has connected with 1&2 Productions out of Melbourne and has already made her presence felt in the international EDM world. Not too long ago, she hit the ground running with collaboration with Swiss DJ/producer, EDX.
