Perhaps best-known for being one-half of Australian new-wave duo We Are The Brave, renowned singer-songwriter Jess Chalker is now going solo and will release her debut full-length solo album Hemispheres on November 5th via her own imprint, 528 Records.

The LP follows in the footsteps of her single Cynical which dropped on October 21st, after the brilliant Don't Fight It which went to number one on Hype Machine and was named in The Guardian's list of Best New Australian Music.

Chalker said of Cynical: "Musically, this song feels like being in a dark ocean in a storm. There's a yearning in it that's super familiar, like the drama of being in one of those relationships you know won't last the distance but hurts so good."

Hemispheres received funding from the prestigious Australia Council for the Arts, and dives into lyrical themes that explores the dichotomy between depression and hopefulness; self-doubt and self-love; and more.
