Label: Self Released
Indie artist Jzzy released their latest single, “Helmet,” and it’s… incredibly catchy. The pop-track that has an early 2000s vibe sounds like a label-funded project. I could “see” this being played on the radio when I was in the car with my mom on the way to school “back in the day.” The cocky-lyrics matched with the infectious beat is a pop fans’ dream.
Sweet sweet sweet
With a candy cane face
One, two, three
Let them all eat cake
The self-proclaimed “Baby gaga” glides through this track with the ease of a seasoned-pro. It’s pretty clear to see if someone has “it” early in their career; Is there a vision? Is there promise? In Jzzy’s case… yes. Their melodies paired with their film-based (think Gossip Girl, Clueless, Legally Blonde) inspiration transports you back to the early Y2K days. This track should be listened to in a translucent inflatable chair while you absorb the confidence Jzzy is throwing your way.
Get a helmet
Indie artists‘ are making some of the most exciting music as of late; without the financing they are free to just create. Once your art is monetized, you are forced to answer to someone. Jzzy is one of the artists I think we should keep our eye on; it’s a unique sounds with a clear vision.
