Today I'd like to introduce you to a band I hold very dear to my heart. My friends Jean Jean released few months ago their astonishing second album. On their previous releases, the trio had accustomed us to a catchy mix of math rock and post rock, with a tropical and festive spirit. With 'Froidepierre', the party's over, leaving room for their darkest opus to date. Willingness to change certainly assumed, and that we could already feel on a track like 'Love' on the previous album 'Symmetry', but definitely pushed to its paroxysm. Gregory Hoepffner's arrival as keyboard player is no stranger. Known to shine on the controllers of electro pop project Almeeva, his contribution is noticeably felt throughout these 8 tracks. His soundscapes lead the band towards a still unexplored spatial dimension, as 'Konichiwa' or 'Aozora' can testify. You even manage to hear some trip hop incursions here and there. It's also very easy to feel the ambiance in which the band has put itself, recording in a cottage in the middle of the Alps mountains. If the atmosphere changes, the complexity of Jean Jean's compositions remains, as does their propensity to transport and thrill the audience. Whether you're a fan of the first hour or just discovering these eight new tracks, you listen to it with your heart. As its name does not indicate, 'Froidepierre' warms up, and wonder is total for those who love to get lost in the post whatever nebula. .
