Lenka (@lenka) is a multi-talented Australian singer-songwriter. Not too long ago, she released an appealing music video for her “Silhouette” single via Skipalong Records.
Lenka – “Silhouette” music video
“‘Silhouette’ is a delicious 1980s pop jam about being worn down by life to the point where you feel like you’re disappearing and becoming numb. Almost a nihilistic feeling, but in a joyful way. It’s fun to get creative with your more negative emotions and wear them like a costume, turning them into armor. Sonically, this track takes inspiration from soulful ‘80s synth-pop icons such as Eurythmics, The Pointer Sisters, and Pat Benatar.” – Lenka explained
‘Silhouette’ was written and recorded in Sydney and the Blue Mountains, with Josh Schuberth and Dave Jenkins Jr. on production. The emotive tune contains soft vocals and a relatable narrative that will resonate well with fans of Kylie Minogue, Pat Benatar, Regina Spektor, and Ingrid Michaelson. Also, “Silhouette” contains saturated drums and guitar-laden instrumentation flavored with contemporary and synthpop elements.
Lenka has been riding the rollercoaster of a worldwide music career for the past 15 years. From beginning as an actor in Australian film and TV; to her start in music with acclaimed popular Australian electronic-rock crossover band Decoder Ring; headlining festivals in Asia; to a whirlwind major label pop career with Epic Records (New York); and then launching her independent label, Skipalong Records.
With songs such as “The Show,” “Everything At Once,” “Heart Skips A Beat,” “Don’t Let Me Fall,” and “Blue Skies,” Lenka’s music has featured in movies such as “Moneyball” and “Easy A;” TV shows like “Ugly Betty” and “Grey’s Anatomy;” commercials for Microsoft and Coca Cola; and Billy Crystal even sang her song at the 2012 Oscars.
Lenka’s music has always offered a whimsical optimism, whether it is through her time with Decoder Ring or her whirlwind career as a solo artist. Lenka has toured the world, garnering a massively loyal fan base on every continent along the way. Also, she has millions of views on YouTube and over two million followers on Facebook.
Songwriting is Lenka’s lock and key to unpacking her feelings. Even when Lenka found herself unable to find the words for her music, she discovered how much she relies on the process to assess her own emotions. What has become crystal clear through her most recent writing and recording journey though, is that music is her therapy. And for many, Lenka’s music is their therapy.
