Melbourne based singer-songwriter Jess Locke has dropped another tantalising glimpse of the forthcoming album Don’t Ask Yourself Why. Following on from recent grunge-fuelled release “Fool“, sad-pop anthem “Destroy Everything” is melancholy in all the right ways, with a wonderfully ethereal edge.
Of the new track, Locke says:
“The song ‘Destroy Everything’ is about destruction as both a positive and negative force. Destruction of the old can be necessary in order to make way for new and better things. It can be strategic, revolutionary, inspired by a vision of what is to come next. But destruction can also be reactionary and misdirected, born out of chaos and fear and not really conducive to real change. The song is a kind of meditation on whether destruction is useful or futile or part of a natural and unavoidable cycle.”
