words by ross jones
A charming combination of tranquil tones and rich melodies, Jessica Dennison and Jessica Jones collect their memories together for an album of enveloping pop thats unequivocally deliberate and shrewdly observant. “Confines”, taken from their first self-titled full-length out next month through Party Damage, has an enduring quality that is difficult to pin down – a blessing of timeless manner and wit-filled percipience.
Built around a sprawled hay of a melody and introverted, atmospheric percussion, Dennison & Jones seem to narrate a tale of side-taking from the outside of a relationship – a conflictingly wonderful witticism cleverly cascading against the modest, self-effacing reticence that subtly envelopes the track. It’s a purposefully considered proposal, suitably described by the duo as one of their heavier songs thematically, an unburdened display of durability.
Their debut record is available March 3 via Party Damage – listen to ‘Confines’ below, via Stereogum
