London-based artist co-produced by BROOKFIELD (Charli XCX, Anne Marie) and electronic artist Sølv. ‘Jenny’ features lively electro-beats, buzzing bass-lines and sinister synths carefully aligned against a bright handclaps and a compelling vocal. Could this be the lead single for a bigger project ahead?
“Jenny is a song about being possessed by demons – literally or figuratively, it’s up for interpretation….in many ways it’s based on me.
Artist: Elaine Kristal
Elaine Kristal has oft been boxed in as many things: “the Puerto Rican girl who sings”, “that bisexual chick who wears baggy clothes”, “the loud, sensitive, insecure one“. It took years of self-growth and discovery for Elaine to find herself, but now her purpose has never been more clear: to break free from the noise and reclaim an identity that is no one else’s but her own.
At the age of 6, Elaine Kristal (born Elaine Colon) was introduced to the sounds of Boyz II Men, Blackstreet, and Prince by her father; bred into the music that would come to shape her life, Elaine is a true vocalist through and through. Her songs offer a healing component, striking a harmonious balance between soothing and fierce, pacifying yet rousing. Influenced by the likes of Usher, Brandy, (insert a rapper or modern R&B singer), Aaliyah, Justin Timberlake, and Def Poetry Jam performances, Elaine’s music possesses a classic-R&B quality infused with a modern bounce, crafted by a sensual individuality that shines through in every aspect of her personality.
“It’s a learning process”, Elaine says of her career trajectory. In the years since she began her career, Elaine Kristal has been tearing down popular New York City venues while being a steady hook-woman for various artists. Her live performances are noted for their captivating display of skill and charisma and her experienced vocals are ornate with a true sense of yearning. Roaring, remedying, and magnetic, Elaine Kristal is spirit come to life. https://open.spotify.com/track/3TjjmnJoYAd8bROgMAOM5U?si=9fee7c13350d487d
