Winnipeg-based singer-songwriter Taylor Janzen returns with a peppy new tune “Push It Down.” The new track embraces authenticity through lyrics that are delivered by sweet honeyed vocals.
In a press release Janzen discussed the new song saying:
“Writing ‘Push It Down’ felt like the mental reset I’ve long needed. Although in hindsight I wasn’t ready for one at the time. It came together by myself in my room — about my rapidly declining mental health amidst my quarantine-induced brain fog — then immediately put it away and forgot about it.”
“The song is about grasping at anything to feel better, and in the process enabling all my unhealthy tendencies… things like not taking accountability when I’m wrong, impulsive behaviours, isolating myself, refusing to do things that are good for me. A behavior that is unsustainable.”

“Push It Down” explores her own story and feelings. Released alongside a music video, the clip sees Janzen rolling down the street in a bathtub, strolling along the beach and rocking blue tear-like makeup.
With no full-length LPs just yet, Taylor Janzen has garnered praise from her two EPs Interpersonal and Shouting Matches. Right before the pandemic, Janzen toured with JUNO Award winning band Half Moon Run.
More recently, she has announced that she will be performing a Lollapalooza after party show with Orville Peck as well as supporting X Ambassadors across their North American tour.
