With a magnetic vocal style and emotively piercing lyricism, Jenny Kern’s music has been amassing plenty of attention around the globe. After impressing fans and critics alike with her sound, she's now revealed the stunning EP, 'Your Heart Knows', available now.
Drawing on personal experiences, her songs unfold through a confessional-style delivery revealing the strength that can only come through vulnerability. Exploring what it means to be human and everything from anxiety, depression, getting older, interpersonal relationships, gratitude, love and loss, Jenny confides, ”I think most people assume that my music skews toward lyrical sadness but I always try to inject a hopeful undercurrent to it. I want people to feel like there’s hope and just because something feels heavy doesn’t mean that it’s going to be that way forever.”
Taking profound inspiration from the likes of The 1975, Chelsea Cutler, and Maggie Rogers, Jenny is back and unveiling her highly anticipated five-track EP 'Your Heart Knows'.Exploring love from a multitude of angles, including the desire to let go and create distance, Jenny adds, “It’s about being open and honest with yourself, trusting how you feel and looking inward at what you really need. Mostly I wanted to create a record that looks at the beauty and the heartbreak of a failing relationship. The ups and downs of that process. Even though you experience heartache you can also recognize the special moments and see how you evolve as a person throughout it all.”
Opening impactfully with 'I Need You' and 'Feel It Again', blissful vocality rises above soaring synthesisers and charismatic choruses to create the dreamy pop soundscapes that she has been known to possess. Paired with vibrant lyricism, Jenny’s resonating fables are brought to life. She continues, “Creating this EP really helped ground me in understanding who I am and what I need from a relationship. It was also such an amazing experience to explore more pop-oriented sounds with my producer Carson Cody and create something with a more hopeful undercurrent. Ultimately, I want to be proud of the music I’m making and I want it to be meaningful to people. I hope listeners hear the EP, feel understood and are encouraged to be more present in their life.”
