Cassandra Jenkins Shares Beautiful New Song ‘Delphinium Blue’

It comes ahead of her new album...

Cassandra Jenkins has shared new song ‘Delphinium Blue’.

The songwriter’s stunning 2021 breakout album ‘An Overview On Phenomenal Nature’ was a very special release, one that was followed by an extensive two-year period of touring. Returning to the studio, Cassandra Jenkins was tasked with following up an album that had virtually consumed her.

Follow-up ‘My Light, My Destroyer’ is out on July 12th, sculpted with a close cast of collaborators, including producer, engineer, and mixer Andrew Lappin (L’Rain, Slauson Malone 1).

New single ‘Delphinium Blue’ is a beautiful offering – opulent in its approach to sound, it moves from wistful, almost Enya-esque layers of gossamer synths to something distorted, feral, and noisy.

Remarkable in its 3D rendering, ‘Delphinium Blue’ seems to encapsulate Cassandra Jenkins as a builder of worlds. In a note about the making of the song, she says…

Sometimes when I don’t know where to turn, I look for something reliably beautiful. Applying for a job at my local flower shop felt like survival instinct kicking in, and that job got me through one of the bluest periods in my life– being surrounded by flowers didn’t just make the weight easier to bear– it helped me understand it and myself better.

I began to dream in technicolour; flowers became the language of my subconscious. At times I felt like I was surrounded by a Greek Chorus while I went about my menial tasks– they took on an all knowing quality, like they held the keys if I was willing to listen, like they were porters of my grief, and delicate portals to awareness.

Tune in now.
