French wonder woman Jain returned this week with a new song. Hurrah!
No, it’s not called Hurrah! It’s called Alright. But it’s better than just that.
On first listen Alright seems to be just a simple message of positivity to everyone: “Things gonna be alright, if love is around” Jain sings – it’s addictive and affecting, coming from a world where pop remains untainted. But once you take notice of the verse you’ll realise it’s a much more personal message to herself and an ex: “I got no time for you on board, I'm not angry with you boy, I just really want to move on.” Rooted in a joyful a tropical world-pop sound, Alright adds in a reggae like rhythm to make it as summery as a pina colada on the beach. If you've just come out of a relationship this is one for you to raise your head up high with.
Jain is on the road throughout the summer. Alas there’s no UK date (it seems that unless you are Christine & The Queens the UK isn’t interested in French pop, which is a real shame) but the shows she's playing are billed as a warm up tour, so hopefully there’s more dates to come once her second album is released.
Jain - Alright
