JØUR is contrast. head vs heart. light vs dark. clear vs obscure. minimalism vs complexity. analog vs electronic. All of these elements, often pitted against each other, find themselves simultaneously alive and true in a beautiful paradox on JØUR’s collection of songs. In the space between loud and quiet, power and serenity, JØUR dances boldly yet delicately. Her deeply contemplative lyrics are framed in accessible alt-pop sensibilities and beats. Songs which ask the questions of life’s purpose or express doubts about the future are yet winsome and inviting as JØUR’s vocals flit between angelic delicacy and explosive power. Pairing electronic minimalism with elegant musical composition, JØUR achieves what is both timeless and relevant.
Lena Elizabeth’s debut EP ‘The Line’ marries simplicity of tone with the stories of her reality. Leading with subdued yet tactile vocal lines, her words take a path between playful and bluesy tones. Written and composed with the baritone ukulele, she offers a strong soulful voice with elements of folk storytelling. Her three man band creates the foundation for her stories. Jeff Krause, on Electric Guitar, leads with that subtly driven clean tone; crafting lines that converse with the lyrics and laying understated rhythmic textures. Taylor Donskey provides the low end with the emblematic tone of the Upright Bass. On Drums and Percussion, Daniel Staddon brings it all together. Solid tones and sly lyric moments fill out each tune, providing the groove so that you might rest in it.
