See Jazz the Brooklyn-based recording project of Aaron Pfannebecker, have revealed their new single “1982” and its accompanying video.
The track features on their upcoming debut album ‘Is This Anything?‘, due out on November 10 via Flower Sounds. Pre-order your copy here.
Speakingabout it, the Pfannebecker says:
“‘1982’ is an ethereal pop song with frozen chords that hang in the air like seagulls and Elizabeth Fraser modulating vocals mixed with post-punk drive. It’s a keeper about being stuck in a certain frame of mind about how our perspectives get formed and how hard it is to change that. We all go through this and see the world like this at different times.”
“Featuring Zara Bode on vocals, whose grandfather was the genius underground illustrator Vaughn Bode (the Beastie Boys have a line about him in Sure Shot) and Adam Langellotti (Kurt Vile and the Violators) on bass.”
The video was shot and edited by Steven Levine, watch it below.
See Jazz uses drum machines and synthesizers as collaborators and templates for warped bedroom collage pop guitars and earworm vocals. The band exists to make songs that are textures on top of textures. Inspired by outsider art and living in space and a world all its own, See Jazz is music for outsiders.
