After the critically acclaimed debut EP 33, a successful Texas tour, and numerous awards, exceptional alternative rock quintet Weather King return with another superb composition. Jejune Bug will unquestionably appeal to anyone who demands a more progressive side of alternative music, mainly because these creative musicians fully stacked their number with brilliant ideas and mindblowing musicianship. The bend relies upon fundamentals of alternative rock, which are hearable throughout the entire song. However, other complementary music genres are lurking around in the mix, and these additions serve as more than necessary enhancements, accentuations, decorations, etc. Don’t be surprised if you stumble upon some of the finest properties of math rock, progressive rock, and indie rock because Jejune Bug carries many impressive maneuvers along the way.
You’ll immediately notice perfect vocal harmonies intervening with powerful riffs, chord progressions, melodies, warm-sounding basslines, and profoundly dynamic beats. The layer of string instruments lurks around during the catchy chorus, which also contributes to the more orchestral ambiance. Each layer of instrumentations plays a significant part in shaping the luxurious, technically demanding, detailed, complex sound of Weather King. However, these technicalities are not spoiling the listening experience by any means, so you’ll hear how the skillful musicianship perfectly pairs with the calm, soothing, cathartic, atmospheric side of the song. Jejune Bug is a composition you need to hear to comprehend its brilliance. The single is available for listening to on all streaming services.
