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.

Rating: ( 5 / 5 )
 

About Jeivenchy

Jeivenchy is a singer/songwriter based in the capital of New Zealand. He writes broken-hearted anthems and embellishes it with catchy hooks and danceable beats.

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.

I sometimes wonder what would have happened if Kurt Cobain survived. Would he have kept making music and what would it sound like?

You, Me, Everybody - Album Review: Southern Sky
16 Feb 2021 // by Peter-James Dries
Deep within the matryoshka doll that is the country genre is a bluegrass doll in cosplay. Sitting on the fire escape of a rundown apartment building, dry buck wheat stem between its teeth, and a rock band shirt, progressive bluegrass is the genre that ran away from its home in the Appalachians and fell in with a different crowd.

It is an odd circumstance, to be in the position of reviewing reviews. Reviews are one person’s personal, subjective opinion.
