about

After releasing their debut single ‘Happy Sad’ in March, Kochi-based band The Derelicts have released their second single ‘Jennifer’. The track is the second single from the band’s upcoming EP, that will be released through Overfeed Records, run by Bangalore’s alternative rock band Black Letters.


"The embracing of fake social media personas by youngsters as reality inspired the song “Jennifer”. Pop Culture has influenced people so much that sometimes good looking is more valued than being talented & insightful."
-- The Derelicts on Earbuddy


" "Jennifer" is a breezy listen with lush and tuneful synth-pop influence.
-- A Humming Heart."

"The song is commentary on pop culture and the reality of youngsters scrambling to create a fake persona and social life in a shallow pursuit of success."
-- The Orijinal

lyrics

Lyrics:

Was lost in wonder
When i saw this girl online
Name was Jennifer
Desired by every man
A million followers
Famous on Instagram
Nothing spectacular
Just pics in underpants

She is just lost in this sea
Applauded even when nothings achieved
Plenty of wasted brain capacity
Not the only one to be trapped by this disease

Living on virtual likes
Open your discerning eye
Time to say goodbye
And let your imagination fly

Why keep living a lie
Why keep living a lie
Why keep living a lie
Let screens dictate your life

Has the perfect wall
She likes being advertised
Typical barbie doll
Only cares about her guise
Parties, gyms and malls
Night walks in a tight Levis
Social media gull
The one kids idolize

She is just lost in this sea
Applauded even when nothings achieved
Plenty of wasted brain capacity
Not the only one to be trapped by this disease

Living on virtual lives
Open your discerning eye
Time to say goodbye
And let your imagination fly

Why keep living a lie
Why keep living a lie
Why keep living a lie
And let screens dictate your life
