Subsequent month, Jennifer Vanilla — the alter ego of New York-based efficiency artist Becca Kauffman — is releasing their debut album, Fortress In The Sky. It consists of the beforehand shared “Physique Music” and “Take Me For A Experience,” and at this time Kauffman is placing out one other single, an attractive, svelte, sinister earworm known as “Humility’s Illness.” Its Luca Venter-directed music video introduces one other alter ego: Johnnifer Vanillo, a devilish determine affected by two angels. Test it out alongside an announcement beneath.

Right here’s Jennifer Vanilla’s assertion:

Have you ever ever frightened that there was one thing actually and completely fallacious with you, deep down inside and from each doable angle? Sat on a secret feeling that you simply have been an unlovable monster, an enormous disappointment to the world, completely rotten at your core? Feared that your instincts have been utterly fucked, that your anger made you evil, that your thoughts was an inhospitable entice you’ll by no means escape, that your individual physique would by no means do, that you simply must be ashamed of your self, that the world wasn’t meant for you? Don’t be so humble! Johnnifer Vanillo is right here to speak you out of all of it.

Johnnifer Vanillo is my alter ego’s alter ego— Jennifer Vanilla with the pores and skin off, on the verge of spontaneous combustion because of intense inner friction. Poisonous sludge is effervescent up, the guck caught below the floor of the burning nether areas we condemn. Their monologue is an eruption, a confrontation, a coach’s pep discuss to let the ego sing— if solely to quell the irritation after which settle right into a balanced peace.

On this world, the sides round “good” and “evil” dissolve right into a puddle of damp, sputtering flames, angels and devil-figure swirling the weather of their supposedly oppositional poles right into a perverse remodeling of no matter you thought proper and fallacious ever have been. There’s nothing fallacious with humility— it’s simply that an excessive amount of of it could possibly destroy you want a illness.

Fortress In The Sky is out 8/5 by way of Sinderlyn.
