South London artist Heartworms—aka Jojo Orme—is back with her brand new single “May I Comply” on Speedy Wunderground. Produced by Speedy Wunderground head Dan Carey, “May I Comply” is the first Heartworms release since her acclaimed debut EP A Comforting Notion arrived in March this year

Heartworms will play her biggest headline show to date at Village Underground on 21st November and will tour the U.S. with The Kills in 2024.

Speaking about “May I Comply’” and its accompanying video by Gilbert Trejo (who also directed Heartworms’ previous video “24 Hours”), Heartworms says: “When I wrote this track I just wanted to get over an ex and to tell my little brother he’s good enough… turned out to be a lot darker than I thought.”

Gilbert Trejo adds: “For ‘May I Comply’ Jojo and I wanted to lean harder into the stark black and white world that Heartworms is building, washing everything but the band out in a sea of emptiness. Between shooting ‘24 Hours’ and ‘May I Comply’ I’ve had the chance to photograph Heartworms on tour and was excited about capturing a bit more of the energy of Jojo’s performance at this stage.”
