Directed by Nickii Kane, Jamaican newcomer Jaz Elise unleashes a visualizer for “Straying,” one of her personal favorites from her debut EP The Golden Hour. She lays it all on the line in this push and pull game of love.
“Straying touches on those vulnerable inner feelings that we may not have the courage to say to someone we love – that we don’t want to lose them and that we notice there’s distance. It’s never easy to put yourself in the position to have someone reject you or accept you and that’s what this song is. I’m putting my feelings on the line. Here I am. Do you love me?”The other side is that I acknowledge that this is something I want and I’m being clear about that but I’m not going to wait around if things nuh shape up likkle and strengthen up. And that’s the lesson – be clear about what you want but don’t be afraid to have to bounce just in case you can’t get it.”

The single is produced by Ziah .Push and Protoje and is a standout gem from Jaz Elise’s The Golden Hour EP. Throughout the 7-track release, Jaz delivers breezy confident melodies whether it be the self-loving opener “Elevated” or her recently released hit “Fresh & Clean” feat. Govana.
The singer also practices a positive mindset in order to execute the vision on “Good Over Evil.” The latter part of The Golden Hour is filled with slow burns, allowing her soft sultry vocals and honest songwriting to float over spacious and thoughtful instrumentation.
“Breathe” soothes the soul over light jazz and dub grooves. The EP’s infectious mix of beats are composed by a variety of In.Digg.Nation Collective’s go-to producers including IzyBeats, Natural High, J.L.L., iotosh, Ziah .Push and Protoje.
