Indie-pop singer-songwriter Jett Jenkins just released a music video for her debut single, “City in Anger.” Jenkins wrote the melancholic anthem late-night on New Year's Day in Malibu. For her, this moment was characterized as a time of distress in which she craved stability and comfort, despite feeling like the world was spinning around her. Inspired by Wolf Alice, Jenkins set out to create a visual representation of “City in Anger” that encapsulates the raw emotion of the track. Written after her father died by suicide, the “City in Anger” music video was a cathartic release for Jenkins, in which she finally confronts her feelings surrounding the tragedy. In the music video, viewers will see a man - presumably her father - to whom she expresses how the choices he made left her feeling and affected her life.

Oozing with personality, charisma, and invigorated by Jenkin’s buttery vocals, “City in Anger” served as the perfect introduction for this female powerhouse. Reminiscent of songs from artists like Clairo and Billie Eilish, Jenkins does an outstanding job of articulating her authentic story in relatable terms (and intensely danceable beats). This track is a catchy bedroom pop vibe kissed with a subtle pop-punk edge that perfectly captures Jenkin’s artistic identity. “City in Anger” showcases undeniable finesse, while never once allowing the emotion behind Jenkin’s performance to feign. The emerging artist had no problem demanding the listener's full attention on this track; hypnotic verses unfold into a harmonically decadent chorus impossible not to dance along to. Jenkins found, through writing “City in Anger”, that embracing chaos is sometimes the best way to find peace.


Jett Jenkins is a Texas-based indie pop artist who layers dreamy, colorful production behind heavy lyricism. With stylings residing somewhere between Billie Eilish and Blondie, this poignant singer-songwriter leaned into her passions after having an inspirational experience at a Clairo concert. Years of playing the guitar and performing in musical theater prepared this emerging artist to dive into her music career; her debut E.P. is described as relatable, emotional, and delivering “lyrics beyond her years.” Alongside her debut in music, Jenkins is preparing to make the transition into young adulthood as she anticipates the move from home to college. This promising powerhouse makes a show-stopping introduction in her first single, “City in Anger,” in which she captivates listeners with passionate vocals, invigorating instrumentation, and lyrics steeped in melancholy. Jett Jenkins, with her spellbinding charisma, is on track to finding a home on the playlist of indie-pop lovers for years to come.
