The latest EP release from Jessye DeSilva, Hover is a triumphant exploration of identity and what it means to simply be human.
Blending whimsical indie folk tunes with strikingly vulnerable lyrics, DeSilva offers a refreshing take on the human condition that is so honest, it’s radical.
Specifically, the tracks Drifter and Worry focus on anxiety patterns and the challenges that come with striving to remain emotionally present through mental health hardships.
Another single, Queen If The Backyard, is a musically beautiful portrayal of the magic of youth and the feeling of invincibility that comes with being young and naive.
Through their openness and authenticity, DeSilva can make listeners feel less alone in their struggles and create a sense of community.
