Seeräuber Jenny get caught in an Avalanche
Seeräuber Jenny present their second single ‘Avalanche’, released on Faith & Hope Records on March 7th 2011. A striking follow up to their debut, this single is another compelling and intensely layered slice of lo-fi melancholic pop. The B-Side ‘To Decide (We’ll Cast Lots)’ accompanies the release showing a dynamic side to the band’s creative musings, a beautifully crafted melody with heart-felt introspection.
Seeräuber Jenny is...a combination of an old English folk sensibility with the cinematic pastoral sweeps of Americana; a Super 8 sound bolstered by an understanding of things electro. This is not finger-in-ear folk though, nor the earnest warbling of bearded men, but rather the best of old and new worlds, a cocktail of richly textured melancholy that recalls the mini-melodramas of Arcade Fire, the haunted melodies The Cure, the uplifting musical surges of Fleet Foxes or the fragile story-telling of Bright Eyes.
