Jenny Lee? Ultra babe from Warpaint? Solo stuff? Uhhh, YES PLEASE!. Debut album Right On offers that funky, albeit sultry tone that Warpaint fans will love and enjoy, while honing in on the bassist’s individual creativity and concepts.
‘He Fresh’ steers more towards the sultry side. It’s a chilled-out number draped in light vocals, with a sensual ambiance that you just can’t help but be turned on by. This track is the perfect melodic interpretation of pining after another, someone “smooth like butter”, a description that also happens to fit the nature of the song itself.
The lyrics are mainly taken up by repeated lines of “he so fresh” that will stick in your head for days, but you try obsessing over someone, (or something for that matter) without going on and on about it. Kinda hard right?
Not only is this song pleasing for the ears, it just makes a whole lotta sense, and with Warpaint’s ‘Disco//Very’ being the first of many NotW entries by yours truly, it only seems fitting that I close with some Jenny Lee.
