Are you looking for some tunes that are perfect for soaking up the last rays of warm sunlight before winter comes along and makes festival season seem like a distant memory? Look no further than the stunning two-track release from Melbourne 5-piece Jeffers Limit.

The 7″ features the band’s two upcoming singles Insolent and Spots. Both are dreamy, psychedelic trips driven by bright guitars and beautiful harmonies.

Breezy, slow-burning and perfect for killin’ time swinging in a hammock, Jeffers Limit are an absolute dream on Insolent and Spots.

The band have been hard at work for three years, playing venues across Melbourne and perfecting their unique sound. In their own words, Jeffers Limit “combines elements of dream-pop, neo-psychedelia and post-rock genres to produce a sound that is ever changing and unveiling within itself.”

It’s the kind of music that is a total pleasure to listen to and will have you happily kicking back in the sun or drifting away on the tram to work.

 

The first track, Insolent, is a refreshingly simple but extremely effective burner that’ll have you nodding your head along with the groovy bass line from start to finish.

Edward Lloyd’s voice has the same hypnotic effect that baritone singers like Interpol’s Paul Banks and The National’s Matt Berninger have. The rise and fall of his deep, monotonal pipes act as the perfect compliment to the song’s natural ebb and flow, easing the track forward and lulling you into a happy trance.

It’s dream-pop at its finest, with every instrument meshing together seamlessly to create a sound that’s both layered and a pleasure to listen to.

Emma Shields takes the lead on the B-side Spots, and it’s a gorgeous contrast to the opening track. Her angelic voice waxes and wanes along with the almost fluid sounding guitar riff that plays throughout.

It’s a far moodier song that builds up to a final, stunning crescendo; a beautiful vocal exercise that Shields passes with flying colours.

These are two brilliant singles that will no doubt act as the foundations of what should be a fantastic album. Expect big things.

 

Catch Jeffers Limit take these two track to the stage on Friday at the Insolent/Spots 7″ launch at The Old Bar, Fitzroy. Details here.
