Today we’re excited to bring you New York indie rock band Elephant Jake’s newest single “Kjerstin.” If you’re a fan of bands like Modern Baseball or Nervous Dater, you’ll want to check out this ear worm of a track. Guitarist/vocalist Sal Fratto had this today about the song:
The song’s about the melancholic feelings associated with a troubled relationship. Disagreements, distance, and dissension take a toll on both parties, and both must move forward with a positive mindset and aspirations for the future. I needed a two syllable name for the chorus, and thought of a woman I consider to be another mother to me, Kjerstin. She is the mother of my high school best friends, my mother’s best friend, and the amount of love that she spreads is incomparable. Thank you for everything that you do for me. I realized that the song expresses a sense of distaste and anger, but those are the opposite of what anyone can feel toward Kjerstin. I think that’s funny.
