July Jones Reveals New Single, ‘Switch It Off’

The British-Slovene artist has also announced that she’ll be supporting GIRLI at her ‘Don’t call me a Ho Ho Ho Xmas Extravaganza’ at The Post Bar, London, this Sunday (15th December).

Speaking on the release, July says: “The single is about waking up from a one-night-stand and constantly thinking about the person you were with the night before. This is exactly what happened to my boyfriend and I, I became obsessed with fantasying about him to the point I couldn’t switch it (my mind) off.”

As a champion of all things LGBTQ+ and a fiercely independent artist with a rebellious streak, July aims to empower young women through her music and has talked openly about mental health issues in the past. Her previous single ‘Liar Liar’ saw tastemaker support from the likes of Notion, Gay Times & Hunger Magazine. July will also appear in the forthcoming Noctis Magaazine print edition.

With previous support shows for the likes of Shakka, Professor Green & Rita Ora – not forgetting performances at The Great Escape, Leeds, London, Manchester & Helsinki Pride – July Jones continues to step into her own space as a songwriter, singer, style influencer and sought after live performer.
