“She’s got a knack for writing about simple ideas in interesting ways.”
– Tommy Faith, triple j
After cementing her arrival with her sophomore single Jess Day now returns with the snarling indie-pop gem ‘Rabbit Hole’ before heading on the road with Boy & Bear.
Jess’s powerful and melancholic songwriting
Jess explains further saying “It’s about becoming utterly fed up with being in a turbulent relationship with somebody toxic for you. Feeling trapped – biting your tongue out of fear that standing up for yourself might entice another destructive emotional blow. The fear keeps you silent and stuck, decaying every day until you eventually get so beyond sick of it all and say “Screw you! I’m out”. “
Emerging from the constraints of Adelaide equipped with an arsenal of candid and moody life lessons penned in her bedroom, her breakout single ‘Why Is She So Beautiful?’ introduced Jess’s honest storytelling to audiences around the nation with her securing Feature Artist on triple j Unearthed and airplay on triple j. The tale of heartbreak also featured in a bevvy of playlists including Breaking Singer Songwriters on Apple Music US and Best of the Week on Apple Music AU, alongside Front Left, New Music Friday AU/NZ and Lazy Sunday on Spotify.
Writing and recording all the instruments on her releases (albeit enlisting a professional drummer to play the parts she writes) she truly inhabits the DIY approach and puts her talents on the map of truly up and coming songwriters.
Hand picked as a support for Boy & Bear’s upcoming national tour, her growing legion of fans will have the chance to catch her empowered honesty in the flesh this August.
