Jynx – Saffron City [EP]

#NewMusic from London, England

Eugh! How did we let this one slip through in January. We heard Jynx remixing for Alyss on her cracker ‘T S I E R’ last year and now we can enjoy a release of their very own with the ‘Saffron City’ EP.

The mood moves from mellow on ‘Ember’ to a mysterious darkness on ‘Calm Mind’. Cleverly chopped vocals blend in seamlessly to round out the sound.

Alyss – T S I E R

WARNING: Don’t watch the video for, nor think about the concept behind this song if you are prone to introspective thinking of a deep philosophical nature.

T S I E R (“this shit isn’t even real”) is slow building but ultimately opens out to be a belting bit of dance/pop goodness. The layers of haunting vocals blend with the uncomplicated but addictive shamanic rhythm and fish-hook melody to “take [you] to another place where the stars won’t beat [you] sideways”.

Last week also saw the release of a plum pair of remixes from the likes of Jynx and Adesse Versions. Extend your audio pleasure by taking a listen below.

Thanks to Drums Eat Everything for the nod on this one. Immaculate taste as always.
