CANADIAN INDIE ALT-POP/ROCK ARTIST JEEN RELEASES NEW SINGLE “CHEMICAL EMOTION”
TRACER LP OUT OCTOBER 21
JEEN has entered the 2020s with boots firmly planted in the current musical landscape. JEEN (2020), Dog Bite (2021) and Tracer (October 21, 2022) could be a trilogy of sorts. A strong reflective collection and a call on song to navigate these last couple of years.
Upon first listen, one quickly realizes Tracer is an immersive experience. A challenge or even a dare, to sit with and allow oneself to be taken in and even more so taken over.
The spangly “Chemical Emotion” starts us off, takes our hand and the carousel begins. Inspired by the Hunter S. Thompson quote “buy the ticket, take the ride,” JEEN explains that “it’s about letting yourself drift in the flow of everything and hanging on as hard as you can to what makes the shitty parts more tolerable.”
An established and successful songwriter with a penchant for crafting hooky, sync-worthy songs, JEEN has penned songs with many recording artists including Great Big Sea, Serena Ryder, Res, Hawksley Workman, Brendan Canning, FUWA FUWA (j-pop) and Martin “Doc” McKinney. The talented Toronto-based artist was the vocalist and co-writer for the Cookie Duster LP When Flying Was Easy before releasing her debut solo LP Tourist in 2014 which, along with her sophomore LP Modern Life in 2016, resulted in significant sync success with song placements in various commercials as well as notable movies and televisions shows. In 2018, JEEN unveiled self-produced Gift Shop, followed by JEEN in 2020 co-produced with Ian Blurton, and most recently Dog Bite in 2021 also co-produced with Blurton.
Release Date: October 21, 2022
