SINGLE REVIEW: Secrets by JORDAN D’SENA

In 2021 Jordan D’Sena’s debut release, Silhouette, garnered unanimous praise and attracted a massive amount of playlist action and streams. The Adelaide based singer-songwriter’s acute pop sensibilities merged with piercing observations into modern relationships, transposing an accessible narrative into an unforgettable musical experience. His follow-up, Secrets, raises the stakes, revealing this emerging artist’s evolving depth and breadth. As Jordan says about the new single, ‘Sometimes it’s better to say something straight out and not let it linger, be open and honest just as you see it, instead of keeping it inside and bottling it up. This was me writing Secrets—a song about learning to open up in a relationship.’ Secrets unveils a new voice in contemporary Australian pop, a track with undeniable hooks, emotional power and break-out hit written all over it. Utilising a whole range of dynamics, from the introductory acoustic guitar to the steady rhythmic pulse of the first chorus, Secrets builds into a self-assured, passionate contemporary pop song that’s sure to connect with many. When asked about his plans, Jordan has said, ‘Now Secrets is out in the world, it’s the second single off my EP, so I’ve got a four track EP already recorded, so plans are to release that this year and put another song out around May 2022 followed by the EP after that. I think the next big creative goal is to write an album and get that out there. Long-term, I’d just love to tour and play shows and make music my career.’ With a sound reminiscent of Dean Lewis, Lewis Capaldi, Plested, and JC Stewart, Jordan D’Sena’s Secrets has the hooks, the faultless vocal performance and a lyric that exposes a relatable vulnerability yet affirm the music artist’s vision. As Jordan says, ‘I hope my music is quite raw and hope people can connect to it on a personal level and when you hear of on my songs, you know that it is a Jordan D’Sena song.’
