“I’m Sorry” is a multi-hued chronicle, showcasing Jalle’s brooding and genreless prowess; influenced by emo rock that his older siblings love that soundtracked his youth, as well as delving into his love of alternative hip hop that has influenced his sound today.
The opening track “Hate Me’ serves as a stellar introduction, addressing scars and the breakdown of a relationship in vivid colour, fusing into “Lazy Bones” which shines vibrantly in a nostalgic alt-R&B meets emo ditty, looking back on the emotions you feel after a break-up. The confessional “Punk” follows, supported by commanding drums and euphoric singalong lyrics that discuss never being good enough. The EP culminates with the poignant “Blame Myself” that showcases Jalle’s vulnerable lyricism, addressing the guilt he felt around losing his step-dad.
The EP was produced by The Nocturns except ‘Blame Myself’ which was produced by Siba. it’s a sonic apology for the things he is most sorry about, it is emotions in their rawest yet simplest form. An insight into his world and how he navigates it.

Jalle quickly secured support from BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac and Jack Saunders who has championed the singer since his debut, with Jalle also performing at Jack Saunders’ club night ‘HopScotch.’
