Tobias Jesso Jr. is the latest signing to Matador label True Panther Sounds.

His unassuming piano-led tracks have been cropping up on youtube here and there for around a year, and a couple of month’s back he launched a flexi disc subscription service, giving away 5 unprocessed demos to fans for $5.

A few weeks ago, ahead of his first official live performance at the Pitchfork Paris festival, the Canadian played three showcases in an East London flat, and we were lucky enough to have been at one of them. The highlight from that evening was ‘Hollywood’, which Jesso Jr. has now shared with the world. It’s his first studio produced track, recorded with Chet ‘JR’ White, who has produced some of Jesso Jr.’s Spring 2015 debut LP, alongside Black Keys’ Patrick Carney and Ariel Rechtshaid.
