Review: "Your Karma" - Jessica Brett

After a relationship dies, there are many ways that exes can learn to move on. They can cut contact, they can turn to their friends, or they can spiral through the hardships while wishing their partner well (or unwell). Jessica Brett’s new song “Your Karma” details her experience post-breakup, and how she assumes it will affect her ex. She has come to realize that her ex was the problem, not her, and that she would be so much better without them. Now, she is working on moving on, and knowing that they will regret losing her. Their breakup is certainly for the better, and his karma for the pain she has been put through is now having to watch her thrive on her own.

This song is a simple track: an acoustic guitar instrumental tied with light electronic pulsations separating the verses from the rest of the song. She sings hard hitting lyrics throughout, such as “I know this might sound cruel / But the problem here was you” and “Broke my own heart loving you after all you put me through”. The pain she has been through is all worth it now, because she knows she is better off. The most powerful part of the song is certainly the bridge, in which the background swells to a release of emotions, where Brett sings, “So I respect the dead and I'll move on / I’ll relearn all our love songs / And your karma will be that you love me still”. She has no negative karma left over from the relationship, but he certainly does, and his time will certainly come.

Born and raised in Tipperary, Ireland, Jessica Brett is a singer - songwriter who has been working toward this career since she was twelve years old. Growing up, she performed in big-name venues such as the National Concert Hall, and Helix in Ireland. Her music style is a compilation of the genres she grew up on, but has now mostly shaken out to be mainly pop, with similar vibes to Taylor Swift and Olivia Rodrigo. Her past singles “I’ll Come Back Better” and “Sleep At Night” were praised by various radio stations and producers, and she has gained almost 4,000 monthly Spotify streamers.
