Indie pop singer-songwriter Jess Locke has inked a deal with Melbourne label Dot Dash.
The Victorian artist joins the likes of Methyl Ethel, Donny Benét, Gena Rose Bruce and more on the label’s roster and has dropped new track Fool to celebrate.
“I'm so excited to be signing with Dot Dash,” Locke told The Music.
“I'm a big fan of the artists on the label and I couldn't be happier about becoming part of the family.”
Sweetie Zamora, Head of Label & Promotions at Dot Dash Recordings/Remote Control Records, added: "It’s an absolute joy to officially welcome Jess to the Dot Dash Recordings family.
“She’s been part of the extended Remote Control family since 2017 and we’ve long admired her dedication to songwriting, art and gluten-free vegan baked goods.

“The forthcoming music from Jess, Chris and Jim floored us and we’re immensely proud that they’ve trusted us to share it with the world."
On the new track, Locke noted: “I originally imagined the chorus being sung by the Earth, or some other omniscient entity, to humans, like a loving parent to a wayward teenager - not angry, just disappointed.
“Although I wrote the song more than a year ago, I feel like it could have been written as a soundtrack to 2020.”
