[schema type=”review” name=”Jinjer – Micro” description=”Label: Napalm Records” author=”Sabine van Gameren” pubdate=”2019-01-11″ ]Jinjer is often talked about as the next big thing, the band now released an EP called “Micro”. Time to look into it.
Ukraine formation Jinjer had already set their name with the release of “King of Everything” and while the band has released their single “Ape” earlier they managed to have our curiosity. Switching back and for between full rage and some slower moments with cleaner vocals they have already so much variation within one song that they can energize a crowd fast. Luckily they have appeared on quite some festival line ups already so we will see that come alive as well.
An energetic frontwoman draws attention but without her strong bandmates it would not come out as much as it does. The band has a good combination of musicians, groovy bass and guitars that fill in exactly how you want. But let’s not forget about the way the drums are taken into it. This band has found a good balance and that makes it so nice to listen to. Some songs they give it a bit of a Guano Apes twist, I would rather mention Velcra but the main audience will be more familiar with Sandra Nasic and co.
Highlight of the album is the song “Perennial” in which you can hear Tatiana gives it from deep within. So much power.
The album ends with the titletrack, an instrumental track that let’s you cool down a bit after all the rage.
Jinjer gave us a great EP. Tastes like more, a full album would be something to look forward to. Teasing they can, the EP is good for that. Living up to the buzz, that is for sure!
