Friday is official release day, and today Anjunabeats presents to us ‘Shape Of Your Heart’. The track is the latest single from JODA, aka Jono Grant and Darren Tate. The buoyant, floor-filling straight out of an ‘80s workout video (or the director’s cut of Flashdance) is featured on JODA’s forthcoming self-titled album, out August 26.
JODA is a musical pairing between Jono Grant (one-third of Above & Beyond) and Darren Tate who on this latest track decided to bring back the vintage synth gear. ‘Shape Of Your Heart’ is the first track the duo worked on under the JODA moniker, an optimistic reflection of their frame of mind approaching this new project.
“It absolutely is a passion project…The other thing was, of course, we’ve done this over the pandemic. So it was cathartic. We were lucky enough to be able to work. And this was therapy of the best kind.”Jono Grant
JODA’s self-titled debut album is out on August 26. Pre-order on 2×12” vinyl and digitally via the Anjuna Music Store.
