Jana Hunter and Lower Dens are a group I cannot speak more highly of. Since last year’s releases and seeing them live, I have been in awe of the Baltimore based quartet’s work. They have this swaying twang and dual-guitar approach that is glided over by Jana and it will keep you entranced in memorable ways. Their sound crosses genres and hypnotizes the senses.
In addition to having a stellar sound, the band has also moved from labels and producers–My guess is that the dreamy soundscape that Lower Dens have become synonymous with with continue but with more edge than before. Their latest single and today’s jam of the day, “Brains,” carries their sound so well. The synth cuts through the dozing guitar like parmesan against broccoli rabe. If”Brains” is any indication of what to expect on their upcoming Spring release, I’m excited.
