JEN DIXON – THE SOUND

WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE BY JEN DIXON – THE SOUND

In the latest release from Jen Dixon, out on 16th February, the drums are a real standout part of this track, they really build the ambiance of the song, and pull it through the first stages.

The second half of the song is undoubtedly stronger, it is much more heavily guitar-led, with winding, looping riffs. But the key in the difference is Dixon’s vocals, which improve as the song goes on, hitting a stronger rhythm towards the end. It feels as if she’s now landing in her stride which makes for a punchier sound.

The North East singer-songwriter questions the corruption, cronyism, and nepotism surrounding her hometown Teesside. She has a powerful retaliation against them, gathering her strength at the beginning and then punching through as the song has its final choruses. This political take is a left turn from some of her previous material, and evidently, she has a message she wants to project to her listeners.

After self-funding and releasing her own vinyl, debut EP ‘Less Than A Feeling’, and first headline show, she returns to prove she’s back to business. After being named a ‘Top Grafter’ by RGM, especially after seeing her own line of merch released, she’s making leaps and bounds as a solo artist.

Her live 2024 dates are yet to be released, but after her run of local festivals last summer and supporting Reverend and The Makers, she will no doubt be itching to be back performing. After seeing she’s applied for larger, national festivals, we at RGM, hope to see more of Dixon in 2024.
