Goodridge, Minnesota-duo The Jensen Sisters (Kendra and Kansas Jensen) praise good times and bad decisions on “Beat of a Bad Habit,” the debut single from their forthcoming album Yellow Frames (out October 2).
Kansas Jensen says the song is so perfect for the duo that the title came to them in a dream.
“The story behind ‘Beat of a Bad Habit’ is so cosmic that if it didn’t happen to us, we’re not even sure we’d believe it,” Kansas tells Wide Open Country. “One night we were in our hotel room after a show and Kendra had this crazy dream.”
Kendra Jensen says the hook of the song came to her while dreaming about playing a show.
“The dream started off with us performing on stage, but not the kind we were used to. At this point in our careers we hadn’t set foot on a stage bigger than six feet wide, but the one we were playing on in this dream was huge. Halfway through the dream I froze, realizing I had forgotten the entire setlist, so I turn to Kansas and frantically ask ‘What’s next??’ To which she replies, ‘Beat of a Bad Habit’ — a song that didn’t exist!”
