MUSICAL BRAIN SCAN SERIES: GINI JUNGI
Dear sixties souls we hpe that you had a great summer. We're very thrilled to be back with a new GMK Musical Brain Scan playlist. For this new episode, we would like to introduce to you Gini Jungi. She is the vocalist and one of the guitarist of Annie Taylor: a garage-rock four pieces based in Zurich.
The band initially came into existence in 2017 releasing two singles ‘Partner in Crime’ and ‘Wasted Youth’, before taking themselves on a tour of Italy, France and Switzerland.
The band decided to hole themselves up once again DALA Studios for Sweet Mortality, with David Langhard (producer of psychedelic titans Klaus Johann Grobe) at the helm for the sessions. What came out of it is a record that perfectly encapsulates the band’s self description as “grunge psychedelic-rock”, whilst expanding the band’s sound into other territories. ‘A Thousand Times’ is both dreamy and biting, switching on a knife edge, whilst ‘Drive’ has a wild, galloping pace, with Mutter’s fuzzed-out bass allowing the dual guitars of Jungi and Arn to let loose. Every time it looks like a song is about to go over the brink into full wig-out, the band’s restless and sharp songwriting sensibilities cut through. It’s a record as seeped in pop as it is in psychedelia, and ends up at a beautiful mid-point.
Sweet Mortality is an exciting step forward from Annie Taylor, a record that not only shores up their confident sound, but also explores it further. With previous live dates with Annie Taylor played with L.A.WITCH, Sunflower Bean, Sugar Candy Mountain and FEWS already under their belts as well, the band are already a potent live force.
