"Make War" is Jenna Putnam's debut single
A respected photographer and poet, 'Make War' marks Putnam's first official release as a musician. With its slinking bass line and electric tension, "Make War" is drenched in the poetic, grimy energy of forbears like Patti Smith and PJ Harvey. It's the first of several songs recorded in Los Angeles at Ultrasound Studios with Calvin Love and members of Los Angeles rock band Warbly Jets.
The video for "Make War" inspired by David Lynch and surrealism, was also directed by Putnam and shot by Cameron Holland. Moody, sensual, and visually driven, it reflects the tone of the song through an intriguing cast of characters. "I wanted it to feel like this weird dream world," explains Putnam. "The rock 'n' roll cowboy, the angel poet, the cult director. Like a creepy talent show of misfits."
