Sometimes, the most beautiful things can spring from the most barren and unpromising ground. Take, for example, Jennie Vee, the Canadian-born, NYC-based guitarist, bassist and songwriter whose deliciously melancholic dream-pop has been turning heads via a succession of EPs which have already picked up glowing reviews from besotted bloggers and tipsters, with high-profile admirers such as Courtney Love, Dave Navarro, Snow Patrol, Alan McGee and The Libertines queuing up to proclaim its excellence. Jennie fronts her own band playing guitar and also plays bass with Courtney Love and New Zealand born, NYC-based artist Tamaryn. Word-of-mouth buzz around Jennie’s music has accelerated like wildfire. The trick behind the addictiveness of tracks like “Wicked” and “Gone Away” is an inch-perfect blend between a blurred, out-of-focus guitar sound and absolutely razor-sharp hooks. If it was just the melody and the hooks, she believes, it would be cartoony. But if it was just that guitar sound, a wash of noise, it would be nothing. You need that balance.
