With the events of the last year and a half feeling inescapable, Jenny Kern poses an all to relatable question with her latest singe ‘Where Did The Time Go’.
Written quite literally in the midst of the pandemic and as the result of an existential crisis, Kern explores confusion and the search for meaning within the framework of a lush and layered synth pop ballad. Kern’s vocal style and delivery recall the intimate fragility of Imogen Heap while the chorus reaches for the heart-on-sleeve emotionality of Carly Rae Jepsen.
The build from the first verse onwards inspires a sense of hope with the final, pounding chorus pointing towards a light in the darkness. With each single Kern is steadily establishing herself as an artist on the brink of a breakthrough.
