In a world full of factory-produced radio-friendly pop songs, it’s absolutely refreshing to be sitting back with headphones on and experiencing the music of JEEN. Gold Control is JEEN’s delightful 4th LP this decade, coming February 2, 2024. Gold Control glides along the same trajectory as its predecessors while maintaining its own identity – grunge, garage, psych-rock, punk, with tinges of shoegaze.
“Hold My Head Up Higher” sees JEEN join creative forces once again with long-time collaborator, Canadian indie musician and producer, Ian Blurton. Ian has taken the role of co-producer on JEEN’s last five albums and their strength in working together shines on this track. Its swirling chorus shimmers along the flesh and actually induces frisson with ease which is a hard sensation to help facilitate through song.
