YOU DON'T OWN IT

The second single 'You Don't Own it' is an unapologetic telling of situations where Kendall has been objectified as a woman. It's a firm call out and empowering stand against it.

 

Sara Kendall is a Massachusetts born, Brooklyn based dark-pop songwriter who's haunting and introspective lyrics explore themes of empowerment and self preservation. Taking inspiration from both female artists and novels alike, Kendall’s lyrics are reflective on her life experience, and delivers them with a powerful voice that Vanyaland described as a "portal to her soul". Following her debut EP "Delicate", her forthcoming EP "Comply" tackles the concept of taking ownership of one's own perception in an emboldened tone backed by sparse but often heavy and cinematic production.

Beyond her own music, Kendall's artistry and aesthetic can be seen in Vogue and other collaborations in the fashion world, as well as a featured vocalist on Mom + Pop artist CRNKN's single "The Grip". On the road, Kendall has opened for national touring acts Bayonne, Zealyn, and Eliot Sumner.

Lyrics

 

My skin, you feel it in your head

Thinking I peel in violet reds

 

Well you’re too quick to take your grip

Offer it like a gift

You say you insist

 

And you're studying inch by inch

With a tremor in your lips

You cannot resist

 

You don’t own it

Like you thought you did

Not you, God forbid

You don’t own it

You don’t understand

Prey that you be damned

 

Tangling up through the curves and bends

Watching through your perverse lens

 

Well you’re too quick to take your grip

Offer it like a gift

You say you insist

 

Studying inch by inch

With a tremor in your lips

You cannot resist

 

You don’t own it

Like you thought you did

Not you, God forbid

You don’t own it

You don’t understand

Prey that you be damned

 

You don't own it

Own it

You don't own it

Own it, own it

You don't own it
