Lupa J is the creative project of Sydney based artist and musician Imogen Jones. At age 15, Jones posted her first three tracks under the Lupa J moniker on Soundcloud and immediately gained attention from tastemakers at DIY who wrote, ‘there’s something in the way she makes predominantly electronic, gadgety things seem like they’ve come straight out of some pagan cave of organic sounds.’ In Australia, national radio station Triple J nominated her as finalist for an unprecedented two years running in their Unearthed High competitions of 2014 and 2015.
Inspired by artists such as Grimes (who she has supported live) and FKA twigs she sees her work as multi-dimensional and includes film, graphic art, and live events. Jones is outspoken on issues of gender and femininity and these themes are often explored in her music & film. Of her most recent release, 'A House I Don’t Remember', Jones said ‘I wrote these tracks while thinking a lot about memory; what people remember from their younger years, what they’ve unconsciously forgotten or buried, and why. For the most part this EP is about the realisation that we are helpless to heal others from these aspects of their past, and can only really help ourselves.’ She recently commented to media that, ‘I would like to get to a point where I’m essentially making pop music that's a little bit twisted.’ A long form collection of tracks is being planned for 2018 which may be released in the form of an album.
