Are you sitting comfortably? Strap in and prepare to be launched into the cosmos with The Jensens and their new jet propelled single ‘Coma’. ‘Coma’ is a glimpse into the latest musical chapter from the Brisbane five-piece’s ever-evolving tale.
Locking themselves away in the studio, experimenting and recording for the better part of a year, this new sound is a bold and daring progression for the once boppy indie rockers. Continuing to journey towards a more mature and eclectic sound similar to last year’s disco art-rock release ‘Emotion’, each track from the project shares a wonderfully cinematic and charming characteristic. By fusing funk, disco and indie rock elements the quintet have managed to craft a sound that is wildly futuristic yet familiar, and still entirely their own.
Sonically quite mysterious and moody, the lyrical themes reflect this too with themes of isolation, anxiety, fear and control. “The song’s lyrics detail someone in an argument with themselves” they explain, “repeatedly committing to making changes and move forward, then getting extremely frustrated when this doesn’t happen, letting their feelings of disappointment show.”
Having released two EP’s, 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 TwinPeaks. Adept festival stage rockers too, The Jensens have performed at tastemaker events such as The Blurst of Times, ValleyFiesta, JungleLove and the inauguralGrampiansMusicFestival.
With a number of singles still set to drop before the anticipated release of the EP, there’s no doubt The Jensens will be a name on everyone’s mind thanks to their undisputed individuality.
‘COMA’ IS OUT EVERYWHERE NOW.
