Jess Novak and The Jess Novak Band are gearing up for a big year with the release of their new music video, “The key.” Written and recorded by The Jess Novak Band at Hobin Studios, the second track from their 2021 album release, “A Thousand Lives”, seeks to inspire listeners around the world.
In its lyricism and upbeat instrumentation, “The Key” tackles themes such as baggage, trauma, and moving on. lyrics like “If the ground keeps crashing, then take wings / You gotta get up to survive this thing” metaphorically expressing how the world can be a cruel and unjust place, however, we have the power to let go of the things that weigh us down and achieve our goals.
This song is about choosing to let go of the things that hold you back and embrace your own power. It’s a statement that “you can do it” – and you can. Whatever IT is, hopefully 2022 will be your year to make it happen.
The video itself, recorded and produced by Lights on La Fayette, delivers brilliant colors in up to 4k resolution. Novak previously worked with the studio while filming his music video for “The Joke.”
