Toronto-based artist Jeen has shared two new singles “Better Drugs” and “Fair to Move On.” Both tracks offer an intimate look into themes while inviting us into an indie rock soundscape with the raw flair of garage. In her own words, “‘Better Drugs’ wonders why we are always searching for something more and ‘Fair to Move On’ looks at a mutual drifting apart and a slightly regretted goodbye.” Check it out:
On “Better Drugs,” Jeen further elaborated: “I wrote ‘Better Drugs’ eight months after watching the world burn, with everything so exposed and gross. Like we had all lost too many pieces of ourselves to put back together or something…I wondered how fundamental it was, like how broken are we, you know? On top of that, I had a very sudden death in the family 48 hours before we went into the studio to record.” She further added, “This kind of raw disconnect leads to all the problems especially if you’ve lost connection with yourself…so with all that fell away last year, I found myself pathetically grateful for the few people I still had around me.”
Both tracks are from her upcoming LP Dog Bite, which will be out in October 2021 and was co-produced with her bandmate Ian Blurton (Change of Heart, C’mon, Future Now).
