New Find: Jesse Saint John's 'Move'
Pop and queercore collide on Jesse Saint John's debut single 'Move.'

After writing songs for artists as diverse as Britney Spears (Glory highlight “Love Me Down”), LIZ (the trippy “Super Duper Nova”) and LAUV (streaming hit “Easy Love”), Jesse Saint John finally dropped one of his own in February. “Move” is rollicking alt-dance/pop hybrid that evokes the raw energy of early Le Tigre and Electric Six. The visual arrives today (May 2) and it pays tribute to cult movies of the ’90s. For starters, it was shot in the garage where they filmed GO and evokes the grittiness of Gregg Araki’s The Doom Generation and Nowhere.

While the video, which was shot in one-take, was only just released, Jesse is already moving on to his next single. “Fake It” drops on May 16, ahead of his appearance at LA Pride on June 9 where he will share the stage with the likes of Icona Pop, Kim Petras, Superfruit and Kehlani. As well as dropping new music of his own, the hitmaker is also flexing his songwriting muscle with new songs on the way for Brooke Candy, Charlotte Lawrence and Big Freedia. Watch “Move” up top.

you can take my ideas. I'll never run out 💦
