After a trio of self-released EP's, Australian four piece The Jezabels have announced the first single off their forthcoming debut album (well it's not due until Spring 2012, so not that forthcoming), "Endless Summer" will be released in the UK on September 5th, the first release via their new label, Play It Again Sam Recordings (PIAS).
The Jezabels have trademarked their own anthemic sound and "Endless Summer" follows suit perfectly. Built around a thunderous, menacing momentum, sweeping keys, crescendos of intense percussion and swirling guitar create a sound that is euphoric, emotional and for want of a better word, epic.
It's impossible to mention The Jezabels and not talk of the incredible power wielded by Hayley Mary with her voice, capable of blaring powerhouse fury and a delicate sweet falsetto, flickering between the two at will, her voice is simply incredible.
The Jezabels will make their second appearance in the UK (after their May dates) in September, ending with a date at XOYO, London on September 13th. Full European tour dates here. I'm looking forward to seeing them again, I commented in May that the sound was a little overbearing at times in an afternoon show in a little Brighton venue, I'm expecting to be blown away, perhaps literally, at XOYO.
