A concert review from a workmate sent me trawling the interwebs for further info on Sydney outfit The Jezabels and what a rewarding trawl that was. Based on the tunes available at their MySpace, they’re quite remarkable, due in equal measure to some delightful arrangements (think an Interpol or Arcade Fire base but more urgency) and the Kate-Bush/Martha Davis-on-barbed-wire vocals of Hayley Mary. They’ve got two EPs under their belt — an album should be huge — and they’re touring like mad things; one suspects this kind of percussion and singing should fire live.
Nice find! And that voice is sooo familiar but I just can’t place it.
Tempted to attend the Bane gig for a taste.
I know what you mean about the voice; it’s rockin! Sadly, I can’t make their next Melbourne gig.
