Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Jenny Kern has just released her vulnerable new single “Are We Still Falling in Love?” via Snafu Records. This dreamy pop song will serve as an anthem for all those who tend to overthink and question everything as they’re falling in love with someone new.
The song starts off slowly with a short instrumental intro before Kern’s soft vocals kick in. The vulnerable lyrics combined with a minimalist musical background serve to set the scene before some drums are added to the pre-chorus.
The chorus picks up the pace with more insistent drums and some distortion on Kern’s voice as she poses the heartbreaking question “is there still room for us?”. The ethereal background vocals and echoey effects add to the airy feeling of song as we float in uncertainty along with Kern.
After the second verse, we’re treated to a stripped down bridge with repetition of the lyrics from the pre-chorus as she asks “how did we end up here?”. The following chorus is even more powerful, and muffled vocals show us to the end of the song as the instrumentals wind down.
Anyone who’s ever felt an ounce of uncertainty in a new relationship will deeply relate to this single, as it expresses the blend of fear and the excitement that comes with falling in love. Check it out here.
Jenny Kern has gained a loyal following due to her dreamy sound and emotional lyrics. She plans to release more music soon, so be sure to keep your ear out.
