JASMINE THAKRAL: British Indian indie singer-songwriter shares “Running in a Haze” single
Hear Jasmine Thakral’s “Running in a Haze”
British Indian singer-songwriter Jasmine Thakral presents her debut single, “Running in a Haze,” available now on digital/streaming platforms. The dreamy indie pop number delineates the longing and loneliness Jasmine felt during the lockdown.
Jasmine comments: “I wrote ‘Running in a Haze’ about feeling a bit lost and confused during lockdown. It felt like I was living the same day over and over again and living in a bit of blur. Sonically and lyrically at the same time I was very inspired by artists who make dreamy indie pop like Holly Humberstone, Gracie Abrams and Clairo. I also wanted to make the kind of song that can be a soundtrack for a long late night walk home.”
Premiered at Jammerzine (read full feature HERE), the track is currently available on all major DSPs.
Jasmine Thakral crafts dreamy, melancholic indie pop that acts as a soundtrack for a late-night walk back home. Jasmine was raised by the holy trinity of songwriters — Taylor Swift, Lorde and Lana Del Rey. She also takes inspiration from the poeticism of Joni Mitchell and the DIY origins of Dodie, as well as the Hindi music her Indian-born parents played. She likes to write about her friendships, her state of mind and about her favorite fictional characters from TV shows and books.
Jasmine grew up in a small coastal town in East Sussex, England. She studied English Literature at university but caught up in her artistic endeavours, decided to pursue music after all. At the age of 18, she wrote her first little song on the ukulele outside a cold and empty train station. The song was about the desire to belong — a theme that continues throughout the rest of her music. Jasmine can also be found hosting The Jasmine Show on Bexhill Radio, where she talks about her favorite albums and interviews local and international artists on their creative processes.
Jasmine’s upcoming single, “Running in a Haze,” deals with the melancholy she felt during lockdown. With her strong but soothing vocals and rich harmonies, the track conjures Jasmine’s sense of longing to find her way back from a hazy state of mind.
Jasmine has a lot more tunes lined up to be released and can be found in her home studio writing and recording new music.
