Last summer, Rudy Tambala announced he was switching the band name from A.R. Kane to Jübl, a three-piece with singer Maggie and multi-instrumentalist/singer Andy Taylor, for the release of their debut ‘Thinking Sweet EP’.
This summer, Jübl’s ‘Sun EP’ drops, featuring two new songs, departing from last years dub-infused guitar explorations, now mashing trance-like synths with punk guitars and rock drum machines.:
- Quiet Sun – Andy delivers a sweetly intoned reverie amidst a fusion of electronica, acid folk, grunge and warped psychedelic guitar weavings
- Sun Slips Over – starting as a piece of delicate dreampop, all toy synths and sparkling guitars, this piece rapidly mutates into perfect pop shoegaze, Andy and Maggie’s vocals awash in a maelstrom of a pile-driving punk white out
Rudy: “Our sound keeps shifting, a kinda genre mash-up; we look for the right setting for the songs and select the style that seems right. Quiet Sun started as a simple folk song on acoustic guitar with a post-apocalyptic lyric, we wanted to create a future folk vibe, a bit ‘Wish You Were Here’, a bit ‘Blade Runner’. Needless to say it is nothing like either. Sun Slips Over started with that one line, standard A-D-E chords and a hard rock beat, the rest just tumbled out over a cuppa. Rock ‘n’ roll t’rass! The two tracks were written and recorded from scratch the same day, we had been listening to Sun Ra to clear our heads and I guess his solar power just seeped in, hence ‘Sun EP’. There are more sun-tanned songs on the LP which is 2/3s recorded and due for release in July.”
