The beautiful video for ‘Feral Thing’ was shot in the awe-inspiring scenery of the Julian Alps in Slovenia, directed by both Josin (who also did the editing and post-production) and Marc Neckermann, camera man and drone pilot. “It has never been my plan to dance in front of a camera for one of my songs, but somehow this idea got its own way,” explains Josin. “Most of the movements were something I did spontaneously. Climbing was something I had already thought of while creating the concept, but the actual scenery in the canyon was so tempting it became real climbing – still I wanted everything look a bit strange, uncomfortable, restless, but also contemplative.” The result is an evocatively atmospheric and mesmerizing performance that really captures the essence of Josin.

Born in Cologne to a Korean mother and German father, both of whom are opera singers, Josin grew up in a household with music at its centre. It was while at medical school in Nice that the desire to make her own music became unavoidable. “I decided to follow the artistic path,” Josin explains. “I did my first year of medical school and this was what I wanted to do since I was a kid. Somehow I never really saw what was right in front of me the whole time – music. Maybe because my parents are musicians and it was so normal to be in an artistic surrounding. I quickly realized both music and medicine needed a 200% commitment and that was a long-time inner struggle. Music won! I think what brought me to this decision, was knowing that I could never listen to music again if I didn´t do it in this life or at least tried.”
.
Josin’s debut EP sees a dynamic blend of electronic jolts, enhanced by keyboards and haunting poetic vocals that draw on a variety of traditions, from classical to electronic. As a self-taught producer, Josin is always experimenting, incorporating the electronical world into her writing as well as composing string arrangements. There’s ultimately something quite arresting about Josin, and this debut EP marks an exciting start for a compelling new artist.
