Jenny Stenger Views You Through Rose Colored Lenses

The sad girl singer-songwriter takes a leap of romantic faith in her new single.

Jenny Stenger gazes at love through Rose Colored Lenses in her hauntingly beautiful new single — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

Carrying listeners through the delicate dance of falling in love, the artist shares an all-too-familiar story that evokes the complex emotions of those who have experienced the simultaneous euphoria and apprehension of new love. Rose Colored Lenses reminds you of that feeling when you take off your love goggles and let the anxiety of love wash all over you. With chilling lines such as, “Are we just wasting our time putting off the inevitable?” and “Walking the very fine line between love and being comfortable,” Stenger spills her relatable thoughts onto paper.

“This song is about falling in love while being hyper-aware of everything that could go wrong. What I like about this song is that it shows that multiple things can be true at once,” Stenger explains. “Falling in love was one of the best things I’ve experienced, but it also sparked a lot of fears and unresolved issues I had within myself, and I’m glad I’m sharing the experience of starting a new relationship from the perspective of someone with a lot of anxiety and self-doubt.”

Produced by Seth Wentland and featuring Brady Sossaman on guitar, the music sets the perfect backdrop for the rollercoaster of emotions depicted in the lyrics. The melody rises and falls like the unpredictable tide of feelings, and the harmonies echo the complexity of love’s emotional terrain. As Stenger’s voice trembles with vulnerability, we are reminded that opening oneself to love requires an immense amount of courage, especially when battling the weight of internal struggles.

Stenger has recently made her way into the thriving “sad-girl pop” scene. Entering with her first single Better in January 2022, Stenger creates music that delves into the complicated and emotional human experience. By narrating her personal journey and opening up through music, she hopes to make others feel less alone. The essence of Stenger’s musical compositions is inspired by her stories of growing up as a small-town girl. Her first album, Trying My Best, released in November 2022, illuminates themes such as unreciprocated affection, envy, and psychological struggles. This release breathes life into her artistic vision and establishes her indelible presence within the industry.
