Hazy, heady, hedonistic and hopeful—Gold Control is JEEN’s fourth album this decade. The luminous ten tracker glides along the same trajectory as its predecessors while maintaining its own identity. Grunge. Garage. Psych-rock. Punk. Tinges of Shoegaze. Her influences continue to shine as she crafts them into her own vehicle with ease.
She joined creative forces once again with long-time collaborator Canadian indie musician and producer Ian Blurton who has taken the role of co-producer on JEEN’s last five albums. “Pour Your Heart” was the first song recorded for Gold Control, a laid-back track about searching for lights in the dark.
Right after I finished writing the songs for Gold Control, I lost all of the demo projects in a massive computer fail so Ian suggested we just go in and jam the songs a bunch top to bottom and re-demo them before we started tracking for real. we never really did it that way for the previous albums, always just worked off my home demos as opposed to rehashing the songs prior with full band. it was super fun to go a little deeper on these songs at that early stage and I think the whole LP is better for it.
