Heartworms - A Comforting Notion EP
A mesmerising set of dark and driving dystopian bangers. We can’t rave about Heartworms enough.
Backed by a full live band, Heartworms’ performances are a masterclass in poise. Jojo describes the theatre brought to her shows - punctuated by her intense stare - as a kick back against preconceived notions of ‘smallness’ and fragility as a female musician. On stage, her projection is the very antithesis: we see an artist who is big, powerful, in total control. Uniformity plays a huge role in all things Heartworms, too. The metronomic music and meticulous fashion of bands like Interpol and Kraftwerk greatly inspires Jojo, as does PJ Harvey, whose dark sense of humour and lyrical dexterity permeates Heartworms’ songwriting.
All of these facets of Jojo’s personality bear fruit on A Comforting Notion – the debut EP from Heartworms and the first release for iconic indie label Speedy Wunderground.
A Comforting Notion finds Jojo working with the label’s founder - and a long term influence of hers - Dan Carey across four tracks of mesmeric, gothic-sounding post-rock and punk. The tracks were written by Jojo on guitar and synths, with drums programmed on a MIDI controller before being brought to life in Carey’s studio in his own signature, live takes-only style.

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.
Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
