Melbourne, post-grunge monsters Jarface have announced their debut album ‘Now They See’ will be release on Friday, December 8.
To celebrate the release of ‘Now They See’, Jarface have released a taste of the album in new single Absolution; a grooving track about finding love in the early hours of the morning after a show.
It’s been a long journey to ‘Now They See’ for Jarface and the album title is a subtle dig at the arduous process it took to bring it to fruition.
“After three years of writing, and six months of recording, mixing and mastering, it seemed fitting that a debut album which felt like forever to complete should have the title ‘Now They See’, but just every other aspect of our music; it’s open to interpretation,”
Despite the long development behind ‘Now They See’, Jarface have crafted a strong showcase of post-grunge that defines and sets the band apart.
“For the most part it’s a loud and heavy sound, that consists of riffs that are butted together with drums complimenting them but still giving them a beat to help them
New single Absolution is a notably positive track tracing the beginning and first meeting of a future couple.
“Absolution was written after meeting my partner on a late night out at a Smith Street bar. I was there after we’d played a show at another venue and I remember spending most of the night trying to convince her I was actually in a band,” said
That positivity bleeds through the music, the bass line delivering this incredible pumping rhythm!
“Absolution has this groove that was inspired by the blues tunes that were being played that night.”
Formed in Melbourne, Australia, way-back-when, the now 4 piece powerhouse began with just a single guitarist and bassist playing covers in a basement. Founding members Sean & Matt would started by playing covers from their favourite bands, but after they soon realized that they were no good at playing covers they decided to start writing their own stuff.
Fast forward a few years and after playing some of Melbourne’s biggest and best venues like the famous Cherry Bar, The Northcote Social Club, The Ding Dong Lounge, The Espy Gershwin Room and many more, Jarface keeps on establishing and growing their name and following.
