Jennah Barry Returns With New Single “Venus In Heat” – Out via Forward Music Group
The Halifax, Nova Scotia-based artist, Jennah Barry is making her return on Forward Music Group with the new single, “Venus in Heat” marking another glorious take on 70’s-inspired Americana. The track arrives as Barry’s first piece of new music since her critically acclaimed album, Holiday that found support last year from The Line of Best Fit, Exclaim, American Songwriter, Secret Meeting, GoldFlakePaint, CBC, Record Collector and more.
Venus in Heat carries this core essence that already establishes this ensemble as a timeless hit. The best of the warming ambiance of a 70’s vibrant creation is captured in this contemporary composition. Barry delivers this delicacy with their vocal tones, still emitting this comforting warmth and adding this emotively charming movement within their arrangement. This addictive swooning melody enforces the proceedings and becomes a bold hook for the audience to fixate on. Lyrically this contrast of hope and pain is captured within the words and the overall ambiance balances that twist of affection by reflecting the release into this more upbeat aura. Each track Jennah Barry produces and releases leaves us in awe of the artist’s expressive and endless range.
Arriving produced by Colin Nealis (Foxwarren, Andy Shauf), the new single maintains all of the woozy, intimate indie-folk synonymous with Barry’s sound. It arrives with gentle piano, swooning lap steel guitar and subtle bursts of violin and sax. Speaking about the new single, Jennah says: “This song is about the first few days of falling in love when you feel great and terrible all at the same time.”
Barry is one of Atlantic Canada’s surest sirens. Her beguiling voice was first captured on her 2012 debut album, Young Men, a record that caught the attention of the national Canadian press, as well as support from CBC radio. Vocal surgery halted Barry’s career between the years of 2015-2017 before a return in 2018 with the single, ‘Roller Disco’, her first release on Forward Music Group, and the full-length album, Holiday which arrived in spring of 2020. We’ll have more new music from Jennah Barry shortly.
