A brilliant new band taking Sydney's blossoming music scene by storm, jnr. have well and truly snatched the spotlight with their fiery debut single ‘Remember’. A hopeful song for a confused generation, the new cut is a powerful illustration of the trio's electrifying indie-pop sound, offering distorted, playful vocals and refined pop production that will have you crying out for more.
Reminiscent of iconic front runners 1975, LANY, and No Rome, the new cut sees the band of Ben Siva, Nico Scali and Max Jacobs delivering the first in a brilliant collection of alt-pop tracks adorned with earnest and self-reflective lyrics. Featuring a complex underpinning in the lyricism, along with a plapable tensionthat drifts between bright pop sounds and darker emotive experiences, it's a single that truly showcases the band's unique sound.
This space of uncertainty is where lead singer Ben says his artistry flourishes, as he explained, “‘Remember’ deals with grief, nostalgia, and the moment you are forced to put yourself in your parent’s shoes. I think anyone can relate to wanting to remember someone or something from their childhood, but the song has a deeper meaning for me. I’m always drawn to darker lyrical themes and uplifting instrumentals - that push and pull always attracted me to some of my favourite artists.”
The accompanying video further explores this space of darker uncertainty. Feeling more like a fever dream than a music video, a retro TV flickers on static whilst pulsating lights and pacing strangers in the background add a layer of surrealism. This, coupled with the unique effects and experimental visual production is a really special addition to already a fantastic song.
