The Jezabels – The Brink

A sophomore album is definitely a make or break point for a band, no matter what genre of music.  The Australian four-piece indie rock band The Jezabels excel at this with the release of The Brink, which is a great taste of what this summer is going to feel like for everyone who listens to it.

           The Jezabels stay true to their sound, with a hint of disco beats added to some of the songs.  Hayley Frances McGlone, the lead singer, sings many of the songs in her raspy voice, while slipping into falsetto for choruses (Look of Love, Beat to Beat).  Every song highlights the talents of the other band members; Samuel Lockwood on lead guitar, Heather Shannon on piano and keyboard and Nik Kaloper on drums, through small solo riffs.

                  This band is definitely the ideal soundtrack to drive through the countryside of most parts of the world during a hot summers day, with friends or the one you love and having The Brink as ambient background music.  There is an aspect to the merge of Hayley’s vocals and the band’s instruments that resonates through the rock and dance music scenes of the past few decades and current trends in the indie scene, which appeals to a wide range of fans.  Hopefully The Jezabels keep making exquisite music for years to come and generating beautiful summer days throughout the year for their listeners.
