We caught up with LA alt-pop artist Jenna Isn't Famous following the release of her passion-filled new offering 'Too Romantic'. We wanted to find out a bit more about the music that inspires her original sound, so check out her 5 picks below to find out if you'd also be a fan! Remember to check out 'Too Romantic' which is out now!
1. Most Men by Amber Mark
I love this song because it takes you on such a journey. It starts out with these powerful long organ chords, and leads to a groovy dancy beat. The message of knowing your worth and trying to convince your friend to not settle for a man who doesn’t treat you right really resonates with me. I love that the song’s about wanting what’s best for yourself and others.
2. Falling in Love by Julia Wolf
I love that Julia made a song literally to say she’s not prioritizing looking for love. That she says she went to the club to dance with her friends, not to meet other people, and calling men who don’t even know her out for thinking they are entitled to her time. I think it’s so refreshing to hear that level of independence.
3. Love It If We Made It by The 1975
This song feels like your heart bursting out your chest. Most of the verses are on the “re” note in the scale so it pulls your ear to want to have it resolve to the “do”, but it never does, leaving you craving more. It also stays in the minor key until about halfway through the song, and when it shifts to major it feels like the heavens are opening and good things are possible. Not to mention the lyrics highlighting all the injustices in our world, but the chorus offering a glimmer of hope.
4. Hope Is A Heartbreak by Léon
This is a song that feels like pure yearning. Like the most authentic representation of passion and unrequited love. It always makes my heart feel broken and whole all at once.
Garden (Say It Like Dat) by SZA
I love sza’s honesty and vulnerability in her lyrics. My favorite line is “Hoping I'll never find out that you're anyone else, Cause I love you just how you are, And hope you never find out who I really am” She’s dealing with her insecurities and also perfectly vocalizes the fragile state of the honeymoon phase, where you are trying to show a person an idealized version of yourself.
