Bio

In 2019, The Jensens worked tirelessly to re-establish their unique sound in Australian music. Their self-produced, debut album ‘Hyacinth Haze’ saw them progress from the vintage garage pop of earlier EP’s to a bolder, more classic approach of songwriting. A clever mix of musical styles and production resulted in a grand, often enigmatic vision of the modern world.

March 13th saw The Jensens release their first single of the year, 'River Of Gold', a majestic, Ziggy-Era, Bowie inspired track, with hints of Arcade Fire and MGMT. Now in October the band have dropped their explosive new track ‘Paper Walls’, a dancefloor-filler about picking yourself up from a self doubt spiral. Both tracks come ahead of the release of the bands sophomore album, ‘Hammer & Blush’, set for release on May 21st 2021.

Their unique sound and unmissable live show earned them a slot at 2019’s Splendour In The Grass. As well as other past festivals, including the inaugural Grampians Music Festival, Jungle Love, Valley Fiesta and many more.

The band have also supported several well-known acts from both Australia and overseas, including The Vaccines, Last Dinosaurs, The Delta Riggs, Kingswood and The Belligerents.

Plenty of pomp and swing to this highlight from the new Jensens record. Not sure if it's psych-tinged glam or glam-tinged psych, but either way I know it's a good time.

feels like there's so much packed into this one and it's expertly delivered. there's more than a sprinkle of arctic monkeys for good measure too.
