Brighton-based Jungfrau are releasing their debut album ‘Nacht’ via Head of Crom Records (who have released landmark vinyl by the likes of Conan, Slomatics, Slabdragger & Meadows) on limited edition coloured vinyl (CROM9) on Monday 16th February 2015. The album was produced & engineered by Mike Lord at Brighton Electric in the Autumn of 2014. The album cover artwork is designed by bassist Matt McCartney. Each album purchase will be accompanied by a digital download via bandcamp. The digital download will also be available at the band’s bandcamp page.
Jungfrau formed in 2013 and released the ‘Tape 1’ EP in April 2013. Since then, they have shared a stage with bands such as Mugstar, Naam, Moth, Cosmic Dead, Sleepy Sun & Kick Nurse.
Haunting Alt-Indie Psych-Kraut, this female fronted Brighton four piece use intuitive beats and hypnotic bass lines to weave a rich texture of sonic guitar licks around a web of soaring, swooning vocals, painting a dark aural dreamscape. Jungfrau’s debut contains six mind-peeling tacks that for some may evoke the strident & heady vocal-led swirl of late sixties Jefferson Airplane spliced with the enchantment of classic Jarboe-driven Swans & underpinned with the hypnotic density of early Can & Amon Duul II, lovingly plastered all over with searing-hot stabs of furious guitar. For others, their sound is altogether a more mysterious experience that defies obvious comparisons.
