Jeanines first started in the 2010s as an outlet for Alicia Jeanine to deal with work related stress. She brought a classical music sensibility from her childhood to the songs, but the band is playing a brand of indiepop. Her friend Jed Smith soon joined her to help flesh out the project. Their new song, "Any Day Now," is a bouncy slice of indiepop. But, as with any truly great indiepop song, the upbeat vibe shrouds a sense of melancholy. Seeing as it was written during a pandemic, the song definitely reflects that sense of confusion and is fairly dark. It's basically the musical equivalent of saying "I'm fine" while the world seems to be falling apart all around you.
You can watch the video for "Any Day Now" below. Don't Wait for a Sign is due out April 22 on Slumberland, and can be pre-ordered here. For more on Jeanines, check out the band's Facebook and Twitter.
