Editors’ Notes

The Jezabels’ frontwoman, Hayley Mary, is a powerhouse vocalist; at her strongest moments, Kate Bush and Glasser’s Cameron Mesirow come to mind. There’s no bass, so the guitar and percussion dovetail into a solid rhythmic foundation, while ‘80s-flavored keyboards (think Simple Minds) billow on anthemic gusts of melancholy and melodrama. The slightly retro-leaning pop foursome from Sydney, Australia, has a way with startlingly catchy melodies and choruses, though The Jezabels’ artful, panoramic sound can also be beautifully evocative and haunting. The lead single, “Endless Summer,” begs for radio play with its stadium-sized guitar washes and Mary’s forceful intonation hinting at wistful balladry. It’s too energetic to be a ballad but has a similar emotional pull. “Rosebud” feels like one of those Cranberries or Sinead O’Connor songs that were once every rocker’s guilty pleasures. This collection (The Jezabels’ debut full-length) seeps into listeners’ musical id with little fanfare, as stealthy as dew settling on grass. Discovering the life force in The Jezabels’ deceptively modest sparkle is a delight.

Customer Reviews

Perfect.

It's pretty hard to imagine listening to anyone else's music after this. Like 70s Bowie: it seems like all you need.

They're a five star band.

I like all their stuff. Its easy to listen to and fills your soul with essential vitimins and nutrients!

breath taking

eerie yet beautiful I get chills every time I listen to The Jesabels. Nothing else like them. I am in love with this album!
