This is another beautiful single from Los Angeles-based pop artist Jett Kwong. After having given fans a taste of her music with the release of her debut single ‘Away‘ back in April, Jett Kwong has returned with a single that not only explores the story of lusting over an idealised version of the past, but also showcases her continued growth and skills as an artist, as this single showcases more slow building instrumentals and guiding vocals that were prominent within her debut.
‘Cream‘ is essentially used as a platform to express her own culture’s history, Jett spoke on the creation of the single, explaining how she “was inspired by the realization that we all, including” herself “fall prey to the romanticization of history, and the exoticism of Asia and Asian people.”
“This to me is a legacy of colonialism, and that lens is particularly interesting when I apply them to my own family’s stories of surviving war, flourishing in post WWII Hong Kong, and immigrating to the US.”
This single stands out on its own as you could essentially close your eyes and feel at ease as Jett’s fantastic vocals beautiful instruments guide you along throughout this – just over – three minute piece of musical art.
