Video: JMSN, “Love Myself”

Songwriter JMSN sings with pain and plays guitar in space.

April 18, 2014


Clocking in at just under two minutes, JMSN's "Love Myself" plays like a hastily pecked 3AM text that may or may not get sent. Can't you see that I'm crazy? And I don't want you to hate me, but you know I can't stick around, the Albanian singer/songwriter vents with an airy yet pained tone—imagine if Frank Ocean wrote a deep cut for Justin Timberlake. "I think a lot of people have felt and/or are still feeling this way," JMSN (pronounced like the drink) told us of the interlude from his self-produced Pllajë EP, out now. As for the visuals, which find him lurking through an old west desert and needling a solo through the cosmos, JMSN's treatment is more trippy than tragic: "I always had a dream of playing guitar in space. Just never thought I was good enough," he says. "Then I thought fuck that shit. Just do it.” JMSN's Blue Album is on the way.
