“Combining bright, pop-centric hooks with sun-soaked, guitar-driven instrumentals, the Brisbane group aren’t too far off being the next Last Dinosaurs” – Pilerats“When the rock band remembers they’re also psych band and we reap the resulting bite of swirly whirly
good shit.” – Dave Ruby Howe, Triple J
“the best that indie and alternative rock has to offer” – the AU review
Still pinching themselves from their Splendour In The Grass debut, not to mention their wins at the prestigious QUBE Effect,taking home the ‘Telstra Innovation’ and ‘JMC Best Original Song’ awards the weeks prior, much loved Brisbane bunch The Jensens waste no time, back with the celestial ‘Four Chambers’ (premiered via HighClouds) – the final taste of their debut album due next week!
Expanding upon the fresh, reinvigorated sound flexed on previous singles ‘Coma’ and ‘Mt. Mura’, The Jensens’ divergent art rock flair comes to fruition and shines brighter than ever on ‘Four Chambers’. Glistening with an array of grooving rhythms, blistering guitar riffs and even an astronomical saxophone solo, the single is a fittingly powerful indie rock finale to the trio of single releases.
Lyrically more optimistic than past, the single delves into deeper themes of human history and our place in time. “Four Chambers is a celebration of flow, as ancient mythology and cutting-edge technologies all coexist during a very strange and transitory period for humans. It’s a push-pull of old and new, emotion and logic, belief and science. The music on this track mirrors these same ideas, encompassing elements of our sound both past and present,” vocalist and guitarist Nathan Kendall explains.
Set for release next week, the anticipated, long awaited debut LP Hyacinth Hazeis the result of The Jensens locking themselves away in the studio, experimenting and recording for the better part of a year.Pushing the boundaries of their sound like never before, the seven-track album incorporates aspects of prog rock, disco and electronic to the group’s signature indie rock sound, a mesmerising mix which keeps things refreshing from start to end.
Prior singles ‘Coma’ and ‘Mt. Mura’ have seen spins on triple j and triple j Unearthed, racking up over 30,000 streams between them, having landed in Apple Music‘s ‘The New Rock‘ playlist along with Spotify‘s ‘New Music Friday AU & NZ‘, ‘Indie Arrivals‘ and ‘Chords + Cardigans‘ playlists.
With two EP’s already released, the youthful Everybody Talks (2016) and the melancholic Sexless (2017), The Jensens have since gone on to share the stage with the likes of The Vaccines, Last Dinosaurs,Spiderbait and Twin Peaks. Adept festival stage rockers too, The Jensens have performed at tastemaker events such as Splendour In The Grass, The Blurst of Times, Mountain Goat Valley Crawl, Valley Fiesta, Jungle Love, Grampians Music Festival.
