Indie-pop singer-songwriter Jett Jenkins released her debut single, “City In Anger,” on November 14. This track – oozing with personality, charisma, and invigorated by Jenkin’s buttery vocals – serves as the perfect introduction for this female powerhouse. Reminiscent of songs from artists like Clairo and Billie Eilish, Jenkins does an outstanding job of articulating her authentic story in relatable terms (and intensely danceable beats). This track is a catchy bedroom pop vibe kissed with a subtle pop-punk edge that perfectly captures Jenkin’s artistic identity. “City In Anger” showcases undeniable finesse, while never once allowing the raw emotion behind Jenkin’s performance to feign.
She wrote this melancholic anthem late-night on New Year’s Day in Malibu. For Jenkins, this moment was characterized as a time of distress in which she craved stability and comfort, despite feeling like the world was spinning around her. The emerging artist had no problem demanding the listener’s full attention on this track; hypnotic verses unfold into a harmonically decadent chorus impossible not to dance along to. Jenkins found, through writing “City In Anger,” that embracing chaos is sometimes the best way to find peace. Fans can look forward to a limited edition 45rpm vinyl available only on Jenkins’ website, with “City In Anger” on side A and her version of “Silent Night” on Side B.
