Liverpool-based artist and producer Jensyn returns with 6-track EP January Left – an ode to reflection, reinvention and the restrictions we place on ourselves.
From the lockdown release Blue Tinted to last year’s genre-blurring orchestral soundscape I Wanna Be There, Jensyn has proven themselves as a shapeshifter between many genres.
From these influences emerges January Left – a 6-piece opus taking listeners on a journey through the sanctity of Jensyn’s innermost thoughts. Through smooth vocals, a wash of intricate guitar voices and syncopated drums, January Left tracks the movement of time, with virtuosic basslines acting as a homing beacon through tempo and time signature switch-ups. Jensyn’s brand of dream pop dips its toes into prog, but refrains from any mind-bending pretentiousness some folks associate with the genre.
Jensyn’s lyricism is at once relatable and otherworldly. From conversational second-person reviews in ‘Pressure (There Is)’ and ‘Time’, to poetic phrasings in ‘Still’ and title track ‘January Left’, the EP’s words demand to be sat and thought about.
