Jenn Vix: Unlocked

The Unlocked EP is the 15th release from New England based singer/songwriter Jenn Vix. The 4 tracks and one remix, bring St. Vincent to mind, but this artist's first release was 22 years ago, so safe to say any similarities are cosmetic. With heavily fuzzed guitars and 80's new wavish synths, the tracks are a nice juxtaposition of eras and styles. This is an album about an artist satisfying themselves, rather than creating a work that will resonate with very many. Unfortunately after repeated plays in the office, the consensus here is that the EP is a bit bland and could use a good helping of edge and energy. Stream and buy Unlocked at the link below.
