The Jezabels

I’ve really been enjoying Sydney outfit The Jezabels for a while now, however I’m yet to see them live. This is set to change soon thankfully, with the band announcing that they will be playing a stand alone Melbourne headline show at The Toff on July 15th.

They are coming off a successful run of shows opening for Katie Noonan and the Captains during their national tour, as well as experiencing extensive radio play for singles Hurt Me and Easy To Love.

The Jezabels play stunning indie pop spearheaded by elegant female lead vocals and at times absolutely frantic drumming. This is dramatic music, which is perfectly encapsulated in Hurt Me, which begins with the refrain of “Oh love, is that a vulture, tell me it’s a vulture standing beside you. And do you see your own face in his eyes? Do you see him like I do?”.

You can definitely hear the influence of more classic music both in the emotional vocals and the resounding keys, but there are also elements of more modern pop music, and this fusion makes for a sound very friendly on the ears.

The Jezabels will be playing a headline gig at The Toff on July the 15th, presale tickets are available here. They are also playing some dates in other states, so check out their official website for further details.
