Hayley Jensen started in country music but took a detour via Australian Idol before returning to country and embracing it with gusto. In recent times she has released an EP, Past Tense & Present Peace, and now has a new single, ‘Summertime Soundtrack’, from her forthcoming album.
The song is feel-good country rock of the sort that will be played out of car windows and in back gardens. It’s also a really tightly written, produced and played piece of music. Jensen has a great voice, and she knows how to entertain. She sounds like she’s having fun on the track, and consequently it’s easy to have fun listening to her.
