Young Adelaide artist Jess Kent has already got some major radio air play with her debut single Get Down. Get Down is a party anthem with strong hip-hop/pop influences which has awarded her comparisons to the likes of M.I.A, Santigold and coined her the next Tkay Maidza (that’s right, you heard it here first).
The track has a wicked catchy chorus that would instantly inspire you to Get Down. With a very tight production and strong reggae vibes, Kent’s single is an absolute summer party tune. According to her Triple J Unearthed page, Get Down is about Kent growing up as a teenager in the suburbs of Radelaide. Lyrically the track is pure teenage rebellion and follows her being chased by the Police, dancing and doing shots all night and not worrying about being poor. It has a really positive, party vibe that will instantly get you dancing.
Kent has also released the official ‘lyric’ video for the track which is entirely emojis and is the first of its kind, it even got retweeted by Coldplay! Kent says originally the video was going to have the lyrics with the emojis in the background, but then realised that the emojis said everything that she wanted to say. Kent says, ‘The language of “emojis” is so global and so intertwined in our everyday conversations that it just seemed integral to the overall message of the song.’
The very talented, self-taught Kent has also won the Triple J Unearthed Field Day competition which has given her a debut spot on the Sydney’s New Year’s Day festival. I am sure you’ll be getting down to Get Down this summer, so treat yourself to a free download of the track on Kent’s Triple J Unearthed page here and check out the lyric video below.
