Jeen: “Buena Vista”
Jeen O’Brien has had an eclectic music career: writing music for TV, for other artists, and the band Cookie Duster. But now she’s ready to go solo with her new album, Tourist. Self-recorded in her attic, the album has a lo-fi aesthetic that adds an edge to her sophisticated songwriting. On the opening track and lead single, “Buena Vista” (which means “good vista,” if my Spanish serves me right), Jeen produces an aggressive sound with a simple guitar riff and powerful vocals. Her ear for catchy melodies hasn’t gone away though, and the hook for “Buena Vista” is sure to get stuck in your head.
Tourist will be released on July 8th, but you can stream the whole album ahead of time now.
