Jinjer is giving audiences one more preview of its new album.
The band premiered the titled track from its forthcoming album, Wallflowers Wednesday, along with the single’s video. The song is the third single from the album, following the premieres of its existing singles, ‘Vortex‘ and ‘Mediator.’ Wallflowers is scheduled for release Friday through Nuclear Blast Records.
The video for ‘Wallflowers’ features front woman Tatiana Shmayluk in an apartment setting as she seemingly strives to fight an inner emotional battle with herself. That is evidenced as Shayluk’s band mates show up as spirits of sorts from her own mind. The visual of her taking guns to those images heightens the seeming message in the song’s lyrical theme about dealing with inner thoughts and emotions.
In looking at the song’s lyrical content, it would seem that the inner struggles that her character seems to face is that of just of severe introversion and some related mental conflict. That conflict seems to be that of agoraphobia, the struggle that many people have of just not wanting to be around people. That is all just this critic’s interpretation.
The band addressed the message in the song’s lyrical theme and its connection to the video in a prepared statement.
“As the director Basil Pereverzev told us “Never give up and act in due course with the forces of the reality you have chosen for yourself” … Wallflower is one of a kind,” the statement reads. “This is a song we have lived through time and time again. Every single note, every percussion hit, every word Tatiana sings is well-thought through and shines. And the story which rolls out in the video is the best compliment to this song. Definitely the most multilayered work we have delivered sonically and visually. We hope that our fans can also relate the video and take something meaningful from it as well.”
The musical arrangement featured in the band’s new single makes for its own interest. It starts off very subtly and contemplative, but gradually builds before reaching its climax with her screams against the heavy, rich instrumentation from Shmayluk’s band mates.
In other news, Jinjer is scheduled to launch an extensive tour in support of Wallflowers Oct. 22 in Seattle, WA.
