I’m not even sorry about the puns - this single’s a winner.
Jocelyn Alice debuted her music video for “Jackpot” recently. The singer/songwriter portrays a badass con artist working an underground gambling scene with her crew. I love that the theme is so cool, almost timeless - the plot could easily be happening in the present day or a few decades ago.
It’s a pop song with an intricate, upbeat rhythm, working perfectly with her slightly breathy, melodious vocals (and a refreshing bit of soul). The latter is the highlight here - the Canadian native’s voice shines in this song, and her sassy, confident scenes in the video are a great introduction to her personality for listeners who weren’t familiar with her before.

P.S. Catch Jocelyn at SXSW, which kicks off this Friday (March 11) in Austin. She’ll be performing at Bar 96 on March 16. For more on the event, check out the official details here.
