Interview With Jennifer Left
SMIRK, SMOKE, SWAGGER AND SOUL
Fresh from the critical and audience entrancing success that was Black Dog and the single’s subsequent shows, Jennifer Left returns with a brand new offering – Diggory (video below). A succinct and infectious shuffle of a tune, it is a dejected ode to a workaholic soul whose inordinate social life and unbounded substance abuse unwittingly begin to take its toll. Although lyrically awash with a heavy heart, Diggory brims with melodic invention and what’s fast becoming Jennifer’s seemingly effortless way of imbuing a song with a wry swagger.
Jennifer Left possesses an imperious musical sensibility that belies her tender age and Diggory is testament to her ever-progressing songcraft. Complimenting the single and Jennifer’s musical ideology is a neo-folk reworking of New Order’s Temptation, which flaunts her ever-intriguing vocal stylings to grand effect and was previously available for downloaded here for a limited time period only. Unfortunately you’ve now missed that boat, but don’t let that put you off checking out Jennifer’s other material.
