The biggest downside of spending so much time doing this blog is I often neglect bands whom with more hours in the day I'd absolutely love, The Jezabels are definitely one such example. I've followed for band for about five years now and have seen them three times but I've probably only listened to last years LP The Brink a handful of times. It deserves more. Perhaps I'll give it that now the band are back on my mind thanks to the dramatic introduction to their third album Synthia, due for release on February 12th and available with a combination of ticket/physical packages here.
"Come Alive" is the track, dark, jagged and brooding it finds the Australian quartet at their most intense, with murky synths and Hayley's ever incredible, theatrical vocal climaxing with the gargantuan squeal of guitars and forthright drums. Synthia promises to be the bands most adventurous and rewarding yet.
The Jezabels play London's Tufnell Park Dome on March 10th. If you fancy tickets, I wouldn't hang around too long.
