Here's some relatively recent news in the Miami music front: the new local act Jean Jacket consisting of Harlowe Gee (vocals, keys, producer) and Steph Taylor (back-up vocals and keys). Upon first hearing Jean Jacket's album k cpu, I remember feeling like I was being taken for a ride. The album slowly pulls you in to its first song "Sea Foam" and takes you on a truly inspiring experience that up to now I've found incomparable. It's not necessarily the kind of music you'd go out to see and *rage* to, but the kind you can comfortably get lost in and feel really good inside of (think Radiohead and Washed out). There are definitely more than a few songs on the album you will find yourself bobbing your head to (She Wants the Sea, Code Red, Please, Super Party Cups) and nearly all of them are capable of getting stuck in your head because they are so damn catchy. The album according to Harlowe is said to be inspired by Miami itself "...pink sunsets, palm trees, champagne, and just feel-good vibes". The album isn't entirely a happy-go-lucky experience though, you will find yourself enthralled by the dark undertones that speak of a love lost. Towards the end of the last song "Super Party Cups" you'll feel the album pulling you out at a fast pace, a truly perfect exit I can never seem to get enough of. For more info on Jean Jacket check out their Facebook Page, Spotify, iTunes, and their website for upcoming show dates where you can also download k cpu for free! Happy listening XXX
