*The Following Press Release Was Issued By a girl named jaen*
a girl named jaen announces the release of her new single “We Are The Chorus”
Release date: Friday, October 30th, 2020
When did you first feel it; that growing tension, the shift from comfortable and “normal” to uncomfortable and not normal at all? We all think we won’t get desensitized, but it happens over time and then something shakes us and we either react, make a change or the change makes us. The last four years has shown, more than ever, that we need to stay together, to research, to listen, to stay awake, to rise again and keep rising like those who came before us.
a girl named jaen (also known as agnj) was inspired by all the movements past and especially present, wherein we the people organize and effect change! She continues to feel like she must do her part and like her single “Resist,” which was released before the 2016 midterms election, she wrote “We Are The Chorus” as another battle cry. She says, “ I want this to inspire others the way I’ve been inspired, to get out there where you can, to never give up the fight for causes that we feel passionate about and to realize that our voice matters and collectively is so powerful!”
agnj’s Popternative song, “We Are The Chorus” (WATC) (Produced by Dennis Coronel & Co-Produced by agnj) takes you on a journey with the musical soundscape having been inspired by its serious and poignant lyric. The attention-grabbing, loud knock at the door and juxtaposing whispered intro makes you want to know what comes next. The deftly written verse moves quickly into a headbopping pre-chorus to a halftime and then danceable march-like cadence before surrounding the listener with richly stacked vocals chanting the familiar “no justice, no peace.” WATC builds intensity leading up to a haunting bridge release which harkens to social movements past and present reminding the listener that, “We’re just getting started,” only to be disrupted by a quick peppering of words warning, “Don’t get it twisted.” We, the majority of the people are not fooled.
A portion of net proceeds from the downloads/streams of “We Are The Chorus” from agnj’s website and/or your favorite platforms will be donated to organizations that care about making sure all our votes matter and environmental causes.
agnj has garnered many accolades for her music including top writing awards from songwriting contests like John Lennon, USA, Unisong, Australian, Broadjam and others.
