Jillian Steins’ latest release, the remnants., emerges as a poignant and introspective concept album, delving fearlessly into the often-uncomfortable realms of human experience. With a commitment to connecting and inspiring, Steins weaves together a collection of songs that explore the depths of loneliness, body insecurity, personal growth, the nuances of fading friendships, and the questioning of self-beliefs.
Steins expresses the album’s dual nature, acknowledging that while it serves as a vessel for healing, it does not shy away from the realities of pain. The opening track, “remnants of beauty – will it ever be enough?” sets the tone by unmasking the complexities surrounding body image and the cyclical pursuit of an elusive perfection.
In her own words,
“The ideas of loneliness, grief, insecurity, searching for who we are or if we made the right decision—all of these things can leave us feeling like we have ‘remnants’ left of ourselves.”
the remnants. is not just a collection of individual songs; it is a concept album with a profound overarching meaning. Steins invites listeners to explore these interconnected themes and the quest for identity. In a world where we often feel like we have “remnants” left of ourselves, Steins’ music serves as a guiding force, helping us pick up the pieces and reassuring us that we are not alone.
