Jenny Besetzt does not shy away from a cathartic release. It’s clear that the lean economy of their post-punk underpinnings is bursting with a poignant vulnerability. There’s a romanticism encoded in the band’s music, and an affinity to soften the sharper edges of their sound with cavernous vocals and dreamy synth arrangements.
Live the band has honed their ability to shatter an audience with a devastating turn of phrase or instrumental climax, creating space for vocalist John Wollaber’s thundering voice to resonate. The rhythm section of bassist Nathan Price and drummer Thomas McNeely pushes and pulls with a serpentine momentum through the intertwining currents of Dillon Myrick’s synthesizers and Spencer Auten’s guitars.
As one continues to search for meaning in the increasingly confusing and fragile times in which we live, Jenny Besetzt takes us on a much-needed trip inwards—a path they walk with both vigor and grace.
