Jenna Kyle is lovesick on R&B-infused glitch-pop single "Lovelorn"

New York singer-songwriter Jenna Kyle follows up debut single "Dust" with the dark electronic draw of new track "Lovelorn".

Having already been likened to the upper echelons of dark-pop, BANKS, Tove Lo and Lana Del Rey, Kyle has a lot to live up to, but "Lovelorn" is certainly on its way. Citing Pink Floyd and Nina Simone as the backbone of her influences, with James Blake and Bonobo coming into play as her modern musical icons, Kyle's eclectic taste grounds her sound in a rich space of musical crossover.

Speaking about the track, Kyle tells us"[it] is the beautiful collision of falling in love. A fantasy about getting lost together on some gorgeous deserted island." On that path to falling in love, which is often not smooth or simple, Kyle explains "we try to let ourselves fall, let the world disappear and just be. This is texturally juxtaposed with the dissonance we feel as we teeter on codependence."

"Lovelorn" is out 17 February.
