JENNA KYLE SEEKS OUT AND SEEKS TO CREATE MUSIC, EXPERIENCES, AND AESTHETICS THAT TRANSCEND THE DAY TO DAY. HER MUSIC IS NOT THE SOUNDTRACK TO YOUR DAILY ROUTINE, IT’S A PORTAL TO AN ALTERNATE REALITY, THE INVITATION TO THAT FEELING OF ECSTASY MANY OF US CHASE OR CURATE AFTER-HOURS, WHEN ‘REAL WORLD’ RESPONSIBILITIES RECEDE. THE SONGS THEMSELVES DO NOT NECESSARILY EXIST TO RELATE SPECIFIC STORIES OR EXPERIENCES, BUT TO CREATE A SPACE TO LET GO.

TELL ME IS A CAPSTONE OF THE FIRST ERA OF JENNA KYLE, OF HER TRYING ON DIFFERENT PERSONAS AND PROCESSES. JENNA CO-PRODUCED TELL ME WITH BAILE (ANJUNADEEP) AND GRANT ZUBRITSKY (VERITE) MOSTLY REMOTELY, IN THEIR RESPECTIVE BROOKLYN STUDIOS.

THE RELEASE IS ACCOMPANIED BY A MUSIC VIDEO + INTERACTIVE EXPERIENCE THAT EXPLORE THE WAY WE PRESENT OURSELVES TO THE WORLD.

“TELL ME REPRESENTS REJECTING THIS IDEA OF TAKING A BUNCH OF FEEDBACK FROM EVERYONE ELSE AROUND YOU ABOUT WHAT YOU SHOULD DO. AFTER SEVERAL PROJECTS FAILED, AND I WAS WORKING WITH SOMEBODY WHO ALWAYS HAD TO HAVE THE FINAL SAY, I FINALLY ASKED MYSELF, “HOW IS THIS GUY TRYING TO TELL ME WHAT TO DO WHEN HE HATES HIS OWN LIFE?” AT THAT POINT, I STARTED REALLY RE-FOCUSING ON WHAT I WANTED TO SAY, AND MY PERSONAL GROWTH WHICH LED TO THIS EXPLORATIONAL DANCE VIDEO THAT PUSHED MY BOUNDARIES OF COMFORT IN MY OWN SKIN. IN HINDSIGHT, THE PROCESS OF THIS SONG AND VIDEO ACTUALLY FORCED ME TO LOOK AT MY NEED FOR EXTERNAL VALIDATION, WHICH WAS WHAT THE INITIAL CONCEPT WAS ASKING OF ME ALL ALONG. I HOPE PEOPLE COME AWAY FROM THIS SONG AND PROJECT FEELING LIKE ‘IF JENNA CAN DO IT, SO CAN I.’”              LINK TO SOUNDCLOUD // LINK TO MUSIC VIDEO

JENNA_KYLE_OJOS.jpg

OJOS IS THE BEGINNING OF A NEW ERA — JENNA’S FORTHCOMING EP IS INFLUENCED BY HER TRAVELS OVER THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS AND HER LONG TIME PARTNERSHIP AND COLLABORATION WITH BRAZILIAN / ARGENTINE DRUMMER BRUNO ESRUBILSKY (MITSKI, HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH, THE BAND JOSEPH) WHICH CONTRIBUTED TO A GLOBALLY MINDED SOUND AND AN INFLUX OF SPANISH AND PORTUGUESE LYRICS.

 

“OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS WE TOURED THROUGH SOUTHEAST ASIA, EUROPE, AND VISITED SOUTH AMERICA EVERY FEW MONTHS TO BE WITH FAMILY. I WAS IMMERSED IN THE MUSIC AND RHYTHMS WHILE MEETING SO MANY WONDERFUL PEOPLE. LANGUAGE BARRIERS CAN PROVIDE A NEW OPPORTUNITY TO COMMUNICATE. YOU DON’T NEED TO UNDERSTAND EVERY WORD I SAY TO KNOW WHAT I MEAN. EXPLORING WRITING LYRICS AND POEMS IN SPANISH AND PORTUGUESE OPENED UP A MORE CREATIVE PROCESS FOR ME; THERE’S MORE ROOM FOR EXPERIMENTATION WITHIN THE NEW RHYME SCHEMES. I DON’T GET AS CAUGHT UP ON A WORD BEING CLICHE. THE FREEDOM FROM SELF-IMPOSED CONSTRAINTS, AND DEEPENING MY SKILLS AS A PRODUCER HAS LED MY SOUND AND MIND TO BE MORE OPEN.”  LINK TO SOUNDCLOUD
