Back hotter than ever, Trent-Jean prepares the world for the premiere of his new single, ‘DISC0VR’.
The artists’ name may sound a bit familiar to you, and that’s most likely because you’ve come across his name in recent months when he released the single ‘DOWN2RUN’ in collaboration with UK artist Mimah. Since then, the song has become the third most popular on his Spotify profile and along with the live band, performed at Winterfest (Around The Sound) alongside names such as Old Blood, Axe Girl, Ashes of Autumn, Kat Wilson and Indigo Blaze.
Now coming to us live with new single ‘DISC0VR’, Trent-Jean puts an emphasis on the fact that this is the first song release to feature the full live band. The track was written by the singer himself alongside the help of Rob Grant, Josh Gallagher and Bronte Leddin during the production stage. Rob Grant especially took the lead throughout the recording and mastering process and this is only reflected in how much Trent Jean praises him; “Rob ‘Master of Sound’ Grant (Poons Head Studios) - tirelessly and passionately worked on the Mastering (throughout the evening) until 5:42am, to create a sonic punch that is the trademark of all ‘Trent-Jean’ records. We LOVE you Rob Grant, You are the 6th Member of ‘Trent-Jean’.”
On the creative process, Trent-Jean states,“On the last day tracking drums and bass for the EP, right before we all left (around 3am).. There was a gut instinct to lay down the Rhythm Section for ‘DISC0VR. I had not even finished writing the lyrics.. But we all had a gut feeling just to hit the tape & start rolling… After the 1 take, we listened back and knew that we were onto something special. In short, ‘DISC0VR’ was never meant to be recorded for the EP, but the 9th Dimension had other plans.” Unironically so, the track really did end up being a discovery for the band!
The new track ‘DISC0VR’ is a song that introduced fans to Trent-Jean’s ideation of the “9th dimension” where he embarks on an interdimensional quest and discovers love with 9th dimension royalty A’Lydia Marealous. It is “an anthemic triumph of finding a companion, after longing to find ‘one of your kind.’”
Packed full of that TJ psych-rock-hop flavour, make sure to give ‘DISC0VR’ a spin and maybe you’ll find yourself caught up in the fantastical journey that the Trent-Jean band stir your ears towards.
