Staffordshire Duo Release New Single Ahead Of Forthcoming EP
Leah Hamer || August 7th
Science-fiction synthesisers welcome you into this JNCTRE trance entitled Do Wrong. It begins mellow, calm, sleek. Spacey electronics and eloquent vocals leave you waiting patiently. Then the slinky guitar and steady drum beat filter in, complementing the waves of generated sounds. The electric guitar has this intensified screech like an eighties rock song, during the chorus the vocals mimic its riff in perfect synchronicity.
Made up of producers Dan and George, the duo engulf you an atmospheric bubble that really kicks in after two minutes or so. You can feel the energy building, pulling you back and forth, up and down in peaks and troughs until it is finally unleashed. Do Wrong is a strange hybrid of genres- somewhere in between electro-pop, techno, indie-rock, dance- an unusual fusion that gives us a preview into the style of their second EP, which the track will feature on.
After only unveiling themselves as a band at the beginning of this year, JNCTRE have propelled themselves into phenomenal success already, after appearing on BBC Introducing’s stage at T In The Park in July. Watching a live version of Do Wrong at the festival, you can visibly see the tense rise of energy on the stage. Receiving that level of exposure, JNCTRE are sure to grow with every performance and release. At this rate, next year they will be welcomed back to the festival, but this time on a different stage.
