Here at NYCountry Swag, we love championing new artists and especially love empowering female artists in the industry. Jill and Kate are a talented female country duo that have been in the industry since 2015, best known as former background singers for superstar, Kelly Clarkson but are just now breaking into the more mainstream music scene. With a successful podcast, ‘Girls Just Pod to Have Fun,’ a creative blog, and an impressive Twitter following, the women are primed for success at anything they set their hearts and minds to.
Their new single, “Better” is an intriguing departure from their last single, “Nashville.” While “Nashville” was a heartbreakingly beautiful ballad, “Better” is a more sassy country song laced with pop influences, showing off another side of the duo’s talents and impressive harmonies. Jill and Kate’s new single encourages partnership and community, which is something they tend to preach via their social media account. The ladies believe that life is “better’ together.
On their Instagram, Jill and Kate shared a picture of their single’s cover art, captioning it, “Doing life alone is not how we think it’s supposed to be. You guys know we are big on community and connection, and we are so pumped to finally be releasing this song “BETTER” about how life is “BETTER” when we do it together! […] Our hope is it brings you joy, hope, and connection….oh and that you can drive around with your windows down while singing along at the top of your lungs!”
The songstresses definitely succeeded with their expectations for the song. It’s definitely a track with catchy lyrics and an upbeat sound that is sure to make you want to turn up the volume and sing along.
“Do it, do it alone / We could do it together / Don’t you think that would be better / Don’t you think that would be better / We’ll do it, do it alone / We could do it together / Don’t you think that would be better / Don’t you think that would be better / Better than being alone / Better than being alone.”
Stay tuned for our Swag Session with Jill and Kate on Monday! Also, the ladies will be performing tonight at Rockwood Music Hall. Grab your tickets here.
