MP3 At 3PM: Jess Clinton

Jess Clinton is a Brooklyn singer/songwriter with a raspy voice and a pure rock rhythm. On new single “Sleeping Woman” (off Real Glass Heart, out July 26), she shows us her mysterious side, inspired by an imagined scene of supernatural women coming together in unity to join feministic forces. Guitar riffs repeat a common theme, while the transparent vocals creep together in harmony. The curious-yet-mystical theme the lyrics are devoted to match the ominous feeling produced by the sounds. Clinton is interested in making music that relates to human emotions, and she wants to dig deeper into the psyche. Her upcoming album will explore this more, but for now, “Sleeping Woman” gives us a preview of what’s to come.
