Alfitude favourite Jany Green returns with an impressive blend of nostalgia-tinged punk, new wave and alternative pop.
Anthemic new single ‘Change’ is refreshingly raw in character, and treats listeners to a sound that is both bold and highly energising to experience.
“I was in my John Hughes bag when I was writing these songs, and thinking about Bender and Claire in The Breakfast Club; the tension of whether change has to come from within, or from the other person.”
While only releasing a handful of singles to date, Green has seen his momentum, grow rapidly thanks to praise and support from industry heavyweights like NME, Pigeons & Planes, FADER and The Line of Best Fit.
Alaskan talent Jany Green is one of my favourite American pop talents to emerge from 2020. It’s practically impossible not to feel good after listening to this jam, which is an uplifting medley of indie, soul and pop.
“Music has always been my way of expressing what’s going on in my head and a way to fight back against the demons that I’m facing, but when I started to be happier and focus on only positivity and spreading love and joy, something clicked and everything just worked in a way I hadn’t seen before. Everybody has their demons but everybody also has angels and all I hope to do with my music is help people express their positivity, joy and love.”
Track of the week. The balance between indie and pop on this song is pretty much perfection. The sound feels both playful and edgy in equal measures. Add to that Jany Green’s naturally entertaining flair and you have a pop star in the making.
