Brooklyn’s Jeanines specialize in short bursts of energetic but melancholy minor-key pop. With influences that run deep into the most crucial tributaries of DIY pop — Television Personalities, Marine Girls, early Pastels, Dolly Mixture — they’ve crafted a style that is as individual as it is just plain pleasurable.
With 16 great songs included, there is a lot at work here on their recently released debut album via Slumberland Records. Jeanines have been compared to such cult pop icons as Dear Nora, Black Tambourine, and more recent acts like Veronica Falls and Girl Ray, but their dark, modal melodies and pensive, philosophical lyrics ensure them a place of their own in today’s crowded but boisterously healthy DIY pop scene.
Now the band is back with their first proper video with “Winter In The Dark” and are set to bring in 2020 with a string of west coast shows. You can order a copy of the record HERE and check out the tour dates below.
