Jeivenchy - Single Review: 360

29 Sep 2021 // A review by Peter-James Dries

Take some heartbreak. Write it down. Sing it alongside an upbeat synthy track. Profit $$$.

Such is the method of Te Whanganui a Tara / Wellington’s Jeivenchy (not to be confused with Givenchy, the high-end fashion and fragrance house).

The result is a solid pop banger in the same vein as The Weeknd.

What does that mean? Imagine a catchy 00’s Pop/R&B soundtrack behind the moment before a breakup.

But, despite the subject matter, it’s not all whinge, not least because of the danceablity of the track. There’s some clever word play in there too. It’s refreshing to see modern terms like ‘seenzone’ – i.e. when your message is seen by the other person, but they don’t respond – used in music.

Recommended for fans of Jeivenchy’s previous album, Seenzoned, or those familiar with toxic relationships.

You can find Jeivenchy’s 360 on Spotify. Be sure to also listen out for their work on Wellington Indie darling's Hybrid Rose’s new release.

About Jeivenchy

Jeivenchy, not to be confused with “Givenchy”, is a singer/songwriter based in Wellington, New Zealand. His debut album Seenzoned introduced his melodramatic lyrics, 80's inspired vocals and catchy choruses. His sound combines the elements of pop, dance, electronic and R&B. In 2021, Jeivenchy released I’m Leavin, an angsty rap track which spawned 2000 streams and 360, described by muzic.net as "00’s Pop/R&B soundtrack, a solid pop banger in the same vein as The Weeknd".

Jeivenchy is set to release a new single Mario Kart on 29 October, a sensual hyper pop track from his upcoming album, Baggage Claim. Baggage Claim is set for release on February 2022, produced by Wellington Indie’s darling, Hybrid Rose.

Fear Up Harsh - Album Review: Fear Up Harsh (II)
28 Mar 2022 // by Peter-James Dries
There is a rumour that, when played simultaneously, Fear Up Harsh (II) syncs perfectly with Jim Jarmusch’s The Limits of Control. The rumour is a lie of course, like many rumours are, but you’d be forgiven for believing it.

Western Dip - Album Review: Warm Ups
08 Feb 2022 // by Peter-James Dries
It’s been over a decade since I thought “I might listen to some techno”. Probably longer since EDM was even called techno… And even then, the genre was never the main event.

Tony Lee - Single Review: Closer
08 Dec 2021 // by Peter-James Dries
Here is yet another track that takes me back to the early-90;s. The days of our family following Vince Leatherby, the Happy Wanderer, around the Kiwi country music circuit.

Mundivagrants is a weird release. Probably one of the strangest I’ve had to review.

Comf - Single Review: Do You Feat. Ilena
12 Sep 2021 // by Peter-James Dries
Water, Clay, and Ceramic. If the sonic possibilities of these three textures are the question, then Comf’s triptych of EPs, The Texture Tapes, are the proposed hypothesis.

Scalper - Single Review: Silence Speaks
24 Jul 2021 // by Peter-James Dries
Hard to believe it’s been seven years since I heard my first Scalper track My Blood Your Blood. Harder to believe it was only last year I reviewed Scalper’s The Beast & The Beauty.
