This is the first time I’m writing about Jules Henny over on SOTB. I think the best way to describe her is Xhriiy-like. They both have hauntingly beautiful voices that discuss some of the realities of life. However, where Xhriiy uses her voice to talk about the sensuality and sexuality we experience on an almost daily basis, Jules Henny’s “PRESSURE” feels like a cry for help.
Thankfully, though, it’s not in a whiny sort of way.
In fact, there’s a ton of power in her pleas to escape/relieve the pressures life is giving her. When she sings “will it end when I die,” you empathize with her situation while also wonder about the things we do that bring pressure upon ourselves. Life is full of pressures. Some are brought on by extraneous factors, others are brought on by ourselves. For those we can aid ourselves with, we should do what we can do to alleviate them–healthily, of course. But sometimes we don’t have every answer right in front of us.
That’s the feeling that Jules’ song captures. Check it out below via song.link and remember to support dope music in all its forms.
