We’ve closely followed the career of Blackpool’s finest, Jekyll, since their debut and enthusiastically reviewed their last release – the magnificent EP ‘The Whispering Gallery’ – last year. With only a splendid cover of Japan’s Nightporter released since then (showing exemplary good taste), it is great to see the band back in full post COVID shutdown flight with their new single ‘Tear Ourselves In Two’ (out through Fierce Panda).
‘Tear Ourselves In Two’ has all those hallmark Jekyll elements: dramatic and sweeping instrumentation and soaring, impassioned vocals. The band always manages to create a vast and endless horizon with their music: wide open, expansive and cinematic. It’s a dramatic and powerful track:

As a sign of their ascendancy, the band were to be at SXSW last year but for the cruel intervention of COVID (although they did make a virtual appearance) and hope to be there in person in 2022.
