The track is the third solo single from the rapidly emerging artist.
At just 22, Melbourne pop star Jess Ball is someone that has found herself firmly on our radar and rapidly on the rise. Since 2020 the artist has been letting us in on her melodic, often heartbreaking world of instantly memorable tunes, and her latest release ‘Spent’ has proven to be more of both.
The track builds towards a huge, instantly classic chorus that exemplifies everything that is cool and cutting edge about Jess Ball. From its razor sharp instrumental to Jess’s pinpoint vocal performance, to the relatable lyrics about regrets and failed relationships, ‘Spent’ has all of the potential to be another breakout success for the artist.
“Spent is about being reminded of someone you still love but are no longer with,” explains Jess. “I think in the absence of someone, you are more drawn to things about them; the car they drive passing you in the street, their favourite song on the radio, people wearing their perfume, etc. In turn, you remember everything you loved about being with that person, and question why you ever broke up in the first place, hence the lyric “I’ve been wishing, I still had you”. Essentially, ‘Spent’ is drawing on the inner turmoil and mental hurdles one goes through during a breakup, the battle in your own head. You find yourself constantly questioning your decisions and wondering whether you’ve made the right decision.”
