The second track from the 2019 7″EP ‘Jazzbrunch’ by Sweden’s JAZZBRUNCH has recently received a music video treatment and it’s definitely something you should check out if you’re a fan of solid cinematic storytelling and post rock inspired screamo. This released in co-presented by Zegema Beach Records, Dingleberry Records, Smart & Confused and Zilp Zalp Records, so the quality is administered with proper care.

This second track begins with a semi-ridiculous piano intro that then flows very smoothly downstream with the post-rock instrumentals. 30 seconds in you’ll hear Arvid’s anguished screams, and by the one-minute mark that double-bass and epic post-hardcore take hold and, in typical Vi Som Älskade Varandra Så Mycket style, guide the listener through an emotionally charged minute before settling into a dark second-minute. The eerie, slow-build is reminiscent of late-era Envy and eventually fades out at 3:35, only to kick back in to that driving hook. It is definitely worth mentioning the exceptional use of keys in this song (as well as their other one), as at 4:40 shit gets climactic as all hell should probably be used as a movie soundtrack at some point. Hot damn, what a debut EP, and thanks for two music videos…cuz I love music videos!!! / Dave Norman of Open Mind / Saturated Brain blog & Zegema Beach Records.
