Jinjer Announce New Album and Drop First Single, “Vortex”


Well, that was quick: not even three months after revealing they were in the recording studio, Jinjer have announced their new album, Wallflowers, and debuted its first single, “Vortex.” Boom!

The band’s breakthrough, Macro, came out on October 25, 2019 and saw the their stature multiply exponentially before the pandemic shut down the world. Wallflowers will come out on August 27, not even two years later; hella impressive, and way to capitalize on the downtime.

“Vortex” is a monstrous debut single for the record. It’s got big, meaty riffs gliding through the song’s mid-paced grooved, and Tatiana Shmayluk’s vocals sound alternately monstrous and wicked. Thumbs up all around!

Bassist and songwriter Eugene Abdukhanov comments:

“Growing creatively has always been a major goal for us. The day Jinjer stops reaching for new musical horizons- will be our last day as a band. We could have churned out what our peers expected us to do or produce Pisces clones without end but we’ve never done that and we never will. Instead, we wrote an album whose level of emotions range from the fiercest aggression we’ve ever had, to the most intricate melodies and melancholic vibes you could ever get from our music. We decided to rip apart all possible stylistic boundaries without regard to financial success or competing with our previous albums. ‘Wallflowers’ is a different kind of album musically and visually. It’s about our identity as a band, as individuals and a clear statement that we are different from most artists… and that it is OK to do your own thing.”
