Description

Jesca Hoop returns with her sixth album, Order of Romance, a record

that fortifies her position as one of the most striking and original voices

in contemporary music. Order of Romance is Hoop's most intricate and

finely balanced album to date, one that draws on classic song writing,

recalling anything from Gershwin to Paul Simon, but creating something

that is unmistakably, indelibly Jesca Hoop. It is a deep dive into craft. As

Jesca says “I set out to mature as a writer, to further clarity my voice and

stance, through melodies and phrases only I can construct. Order of

Romance feels like every person, character, or artist, I ever was over the

many seasons of my life was handed an instrument to play across the

songs.”

In the summer of 2021, Hoop once again ventured south from her

adopted home of Manchester to Bristol to team up with producer John

Parish (PJ Harvey, Aldous Harding), her collaborator for 2019’s

Stonechild. This time additional assistance came from in Jess Vernon

(This is the Kit) to arrange for a four-piece horn and woodwind quintet.

Legendary drummer Seb Rochford lent his skills, John Thorne plays the

bass and Chloe Foy and Rachel Rimmer were enlisted to deliver Hoop’s

signature vocal arrangements. The result is a fruitful marriage of song

craft and arrangement, brimming with a cinematic charm and lyrical wit

that signify a new chapter full of new life for an artist who knows her

mind, her heart and voice well enough to trust them in uncharted

territory.

Order of Romance then is a complete work that demands close

attention, an active listen, a filagree that’s apparent lightness of touch

belies a serious intent. Themes of empathy and friendship, intertwine

with a clear eyed and moralistic poetry on subjects such as gun control,

religious and political cults, and climate change.

Order of Romance is perhaps ultimately an exploration of the endless

balance act of being a ‘Human Being’, an approach and examination of

some of the biggest theme and issues of our time through the doorway

of the personal, a way finding meaning and some kind of faith in a world

where so much is disconnected and discordant. As she states “I seek out

reflection and resolve in my songs. I find out who I am in a sense. For a

few minutes, I can exist in nature at my full potential, saying just what I

mean, in balance, in awe, in wonder and in full force. As a moral agent, a

mode I can’t seem to avoid, my writing is time taken to observe and ask

questions. I find humour in our predicament. I find danger in the

reckoning. I find faith despite our sorry state and I feel connection when I

draw it through my voice. I stand my ground and through the music and

point inevitably towards compassion”.
