It may be just a four-track EP but don’t whatever you do think this is a ‘quick-spin-while-getting-ready-to-go-out’ job. Clocking in at no less than 37 minutes *Jeniferever *are a band all-too-fluent in the art of drawing out a song and building upon it wonderfully expressive Sigur Ros-esque art-scapes. As you begin to absorb such delicate waves of sound you start to view their music more as works of art, where, in _‘White Belt, Black Heart’ _especially, ebbing strings and flowing bursts of colour are shaded warmly while evocations of long-treasured emotions are given chance to unfold once more.
It’s an admirable advancement on last year’s split EP with The Next Autumn Soundtrack, the band creating an all-the-more tranquil and settled mood to that of last year’s Jeniferever. _‘You Only Move Twice’ _sees a lush orchestration cascading over vocalist Kristofer’s frail melodies while _‘For The World Is Hollow And I Have Reached The Sky’ _is as tender and fragile a track you’ll ever hear, conjuring images of a cruel morning sun as it slowly osmosises through the shadows.
Without getting too poetic about it, _‘Iris’ _is simply a beautiful record that you’ll find caressing your hangover time and time again.
