Jamythyst’s Latest Single “Melt My Face” is a Hidden Pop Gem

Rachel: Quarantine life recently sent me down a late 1980s/early 1990s pop music rabbit hole to keep me distracted from the world at large. I think my Spotify plays were solid Madonna, Taylor Dayne, Debbie Gibson and Paula Abdul for the month of January.

Algorithms must have aligned because Instagram hit me with an ad for Jamythyst. Intrigued by the early ’90s neon and glitterific aesthetic of her profile, I tabbed over to her Spotify page. Tracks like “Witches in the Woods” and “Scary Movies” had a low-key creepy pop vibe while tracks like “Double Exposure” and “Flip Me Over” felt fashion runway ready (a la Betsey Johnson). I gave her an immediate follow.

This week, the self proclaimed DIY ElectroPop songwriter, producer, and vocalist dropped her latest single, “Melt My Face.” This ‘90s house music-inspired cut extols the joys of letting loose on the dance floor, marrying the glamour and ghostly of her previous singles for a hyperpop bop. Think Lady Gaga’s “Dance in the Dark” but make it a full-on confessional, fading out over shimmering synths with a longing-filled “I can get real lost…” She catches and crystallizes that feeling of being in the club perfectly, and it hits ten times harder in quarantine.

The likes of Kylie and Jessie Ware might be at the disco this album cycle, but I want more of this. Give me noisy, incessantly fun dance music of the late 1990s/early 2000s. It’ll keep me dancing till the clubs open again. We stan a rising pop star.

Those are our recommendations this week! What are yours? Let us know in the comments!
