Jezzy & The Belles - "Does It Make You Feel Like a Man?" (PopMatters Premiere)

by PopMatters Staff

7 December 2012

You can hear classical music in the symphonic waves of atmospheric melody in Jezzy's tunes, mixed with bits from Britpop, dream pop, folk, and electronic music.
 

Jezzy has classical music in her bones, beginning her artistic life as an orchestral violinist and growing up in a home steeped in the Old Masters as her father shared his love of the music with his family. Meanwhile, Jezzy’s Cuban mother played Latin music and those warm, rhythmic sounds led her to a love of all sorts of music and created a true cultural omnivore. Jeezy moved on to rock, playing guitar and violin in a host of NYC bands before emerging as a solo performer with her own band, Jezzy & The Belles. You can hear the classical in the symphonic waves of atmospheric melody in her tunes, mixed with bits from Britpop, dream pop, folk, and electronic music. Fans of diverse artists such as Portishead, PJ Harvey, Lily Allen will enjoy the band’s sound. Today, we bring you Jezzy & The Belles’ latest video that incorporates all of the above-mentioned reference points.
