Jess Ribeiro LOVE HATEForget everything you thought you knew about Jess Ribeiro.

LOVE HATE, Ribeiro’s third album, sees the Melbourne musician renowned for her brooding folk-rock turning her attentions to plain spoken vignettes and synths in a move that has pushed her sound to exciting new places. Throughout it all, Ribeiro’s trademark husky vocal serves as the album’s anchor, taking on honeyed tones on tracks such as Cry Baby and Crawling Back To You, while commanding entirely on Dylan and Chair Stare.

LOVE HATE is an ambitious and honest album that chronicles love, from meeting an appealing stranger all the way through to the bitter end.

LOVE HATE is out April 12 via Barely Dressed/Remote Control.
