Jessica Morale | deadbeat generation

Alt-Pop Songstress Jessica Morale delivers her anthemic new single, ’deadbeat generation’.

Setting herself apart from others in the genre with her eclectic and edgy style and electric stage presense, Jessica Morale’s voice isn’t the only thing that makes her the bold and unique artist that she has come to be.

The haunting and anthemic ‘deadbeat generation’ showcases Jessica’s stand out, rich and sultry voice, starting out with captivating synths and bursting into dramatic life over the sing-along chorus. Dark electro-pop production consists of glistening synth lines and atmospheric, heavy hitting percussion creating a perfect backdrop for edgy and catchy lyricism as she chronicles how young people feel the need to numb themselves with substance in order to feel alive. The track is accompanied by a cinematic and neon soaked video.

Speaking on the song, she notes:


"There's so much pressure from society and from everyone else to have our lives figured out, when all we truly want is to feel something. I wrote 'deadbeat generation' for my fellow rejects. The twenty-somethings who are dead broke, feel like they don't fit in anywhere and are lost in their own reckless abandon. It's about being young and feeling the need to numb yourself with substances, whether it's sex or drugs in order to feel alive. It works for a while, until reality and the pressure of responsibility come crashing down on you, so you do it all over again and circle the drain. It's a somewhat smug and defiant anthem for reckless youth, and a subtle reminder that no matter how messed up and incomplete we sometimes feel, we're all a work in progress and perfectly flawed."
