"But I Don't" is one of six tracks featured on JESSIA's EP "How Are You?" from Republic Records. The six tracks combine to produce a cinematic record about relationships in technicolor. The singer/songwriter describes her writing style as having a sit down conversation over tea. In "But I Don't," she converses with her pleading lover with "I hope you found what you've been looking for I pray to God it's not me!" The verse is cold but truthful as she recalls every intimacy of a failed relationship. Over acoustic instrumentation and foot stomping bass, JESSIA's angelic tone carries a heart-rendering relief of not wanting no parts in the relationship. There's no begging, no bartering: It's a wan confirmation of moving on and feeling good about it. Good for her.
JESSIA's music video for the song was shot in a vintage thrift store and directed by Nina Kramer. It features JESSIA rummaging and wearing nostalgic outfits to express her new found freedom. Check out the video on YouTube and be sure to listen to this fun track below.
