Considering the video took the title of JES’s “We Belong to the Night” quite literally, the twist should probably have been less surprising … but JES is not one to skimp on arresting hooks.
“We Belong to the Night” is an anthem of following your own path, but also of comfort to all those who might feel alone. “I know you will find your way,” JES sings, and as the melody catches, it’s easy to believe her. With rich vocals and a trip-hop flavoured breakdown that is impossible to sit still to, this is a pop gem with a gleam to it.
The accompanying video adds a unique twist. Sure, we see JES singing passionately among slatted lighting and with the city behind her — but the real stars of the clip have a more supernatural path. A dreamy summer park day turns into a costumed night as a woman dons a werewolf costume and heads out on the town. But she isn’t the only werewolf parading on this night. Talk about a meet-cute.
We’re moving into winter, but if you want to bring some joy along into these longer nights, look no further than JES’s “We Belong to the Night”. To hear more from JES, you can find her on her website, SoundCloud, and Facebook page. You can also follow her on Twitter.
