It’s modern dream pop, it’s the kind of shoegaze where you think ‘are these just posers’ but nah, they’re dead good at it, it’s not easy to do it well, to bring that swirling romance, euphoria and melancholy, that strange mix that feels so energising.
Jadu Heart's third album, 'Derealised', draws from the London-based duo's past and looks towards their future
As many of us did during lockdown, the pair - Diva- Sachy Jeffrey and Alex Headford - began contemplating their separate and joint histories, the issues that brought them together when they met as University students, and the people it has molded them into today.
An Uncut review reads the "Shape- shifting dream- rock duo deliver blissed- out beauty", while Crack Magazine notes an album "full of fun influences". Theirtowering single "I Shimmer" sits A List at 6 Music while most recent track Freedom" has just jumped onto the B List.
The album was self recorded and produced in full from their home in Stoke Newington. Having now notched up north of 200 million streams and nearly 2 million Spotify monthly listeners, Jadu Heart stand as one of the most exciting prospects on the cusp of mainstream success.
Derealised was written as an antidote to - and growing acceptance of - a baffling and dispassionate world. It is a celebration of humanity despite all of its failings. The album captures them accepting "that the world is a weird fucking place" rather than fighting against the feelings. One of the mental health issues the pair suffered from and then came to understand, derealisation, gives the new album its title.
Black vinyl repress. Single LP housed in slip sleeve, including see-through artwork sticker on top of the shrinkwrap.
