Having seen electronic pop duo Jockstrap perform their debut album at World Headquarters a few months back, I’ve been greatly anticipating its release. It’s difficult to summarise what it is about or strives to do, because built in to Jockstrap’s vision of music is the desire to disrupt established conventions, sentiments and genres.

Already released tracks like Glasgow and Concrete Over Water open with Georgia Ellery’s vulnerable half-operatic half-Joni Mitchell-esque vocals before they escalate toward new-age electronic heights with Taylor Skye’s production. The band aim to challenge the pillars of pop through creating surreal but fundamentally fun music. Blurring alternative and pop, low beats and high, acoustic and electronic, …Jennifer B cements Jockstrap’s reputation as one of the most complex and exciting artists at the moment.
