hmv's Next Big Thing... #262 Jerskin Fendrix
Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you eccentric electro-pop man Jerskin Fendrix...
Who Is He?
Fendrix is Joscelin Dent-Pooley, a man with a CV that includes an acclaimed experimental electronic opera and work with miserabilists Black Midi.
After a series of well-received early singles, he's now on the march towards his debut album, Winterreise, which will drop in mid-April...
What Does He Sound Like?
Fendrix blends harsh electronics, oddball lyrics and big melodies together. The best comparisons we can give are to cult singer-songwriter Tom Vek and stylish poppers Artificial Pleasure. Or imagine Hot Chip and Jarvis Cocker teaming up.
Why Should I Be Excited?
He's an eccentric, riveting and it's going to be exciting watching him develop.
Can I Hear Something?
We can help you with that. His new jam 'A Star Is Born' is below for you to enjoy...
