Human People – “Jenny”

Human People are releasing their debut album, Butterflies Drink Turtle Tears, next month. The Brooklyn-based band splits guitar and vocal duties between Hayley Livingston and Marisa Gershenhorn, and since Livingston got to claim its lead single “California,” that means Gershenhorn gets to take lead on the next song we’re hearing from the album, “Jenny.”

Both songs deal with wanting to be somewhere or someone else, and on “Jenny” Gershenhorn builds up a persona for herself that feels stronger and more stable than reality. “I can’t fake it if you want me to/ I look like you and act like you but I’m nothing like you,” she sings. “Don’t touch me/ I could crush you/ You think I’m hollow, I’m full of blood and bile.”
