Indie Pop Dynamo Jenn Vix Premieres Sassy Music Video for Feminist-Themed “Mr. Strange”
Indie Pop Dynamo Jenn Vix has announced the release of explosive new feminist-themed single “Mr. Strange”, due October 7 via Umbrella Music Co. “Mr. Strange” continues her fearlessly outspoken lyricism and hunger for musical experimentation, as it fuses Indie Pop with Trap while detailing adventures with a male blow up doll. As if to answer Jim Morrison’s timeless question “Where’s your will to be weird?”, Jenn Vix embraces the strange in order to communicate her powerful, original vision.
Vix herself is a multi-instrumentalist, adept at bass, lead guitar, synth, programming and vocals. She’s also collaborated with legendary musicians such as Reeves Gabrels (David Bowie, Tin Machine, The Cure) Andy Anderson (Iggy Pop, The Cure) and John Ashton (The Psychedelic Furs). Her voice is sublime, razor sharp like Annie Lennox (Eurhythmics), along with the edgy spirit of Shirley Manson (Garbage), Florence Welch (Florence + The Machine), Halsey, Pink, and a few other musicians and singers who are not women.
“Mr. Strange is an Indie Pop/Trap banger, about a woman who has a lot of fun with a male blow-up doll. You can leave the rest up to your imagination.” – Jenn Vix
“Alone in the night, nothing felt right, then he arrived in a cardboard box. His plastic skin, sinking in, sinking in, take me away from reality. Mr. Strange, Mr. Strange, we’ve got a thing, we’ve got a thing. Honey watch me slippin’! Mr. Strange, Mr. Strange, oh you’re so debonair. Your cold fingers in my hair.” – Jenn Vix (Mr. Strange)
“Mr. Strange” is due October 7 and will feature an accompanying music video.
