With a brilliantly powerful style of sound, Chicago newcomer Kara Jackson presents one of the most impressive releases of the week.

‘no fun/party’ is enriched with character and intrigue. While the production feels warm, emotive and soft in tone, the song’s honest and thoughtful lyricism makes for an interesting contrast.

Jackson served as the National Youth Poet Laureate in 2019, and cites prominent Black feminist poets like Gwendolyn Brooks and Lucille Clifton as inspiration.
