Jenn Nucum Delivers “Monuments”

Navigating life as a diasporic queer woman of colour, Toronto-based singer-songwriter Jenn Nucum‘s music deconstructs the complex fabric of identity with dreamy and ambient Alt Rock melodies, honest lyrics, and emotive vocals. 

Reflecting and empowering, “Monuments” takes inspiration from post-rock. Strings and melodic guitar guide Jenn’s voice before the track bursts into catharsis. 

“Blessed are the oppressed fighting a broken system,” Nucum sings, reworking and subverting The Beatitudes from the Bible, reflective of her Catholic upbringing and the Philippines’ colonization by religion.
