Last week, Jinn released her debut EP, "Sick!" The Brooklyn-based Jinn clearly demonstrates on this EP that she's a talent worth watching. My introduction to her was the wonderfully weird "I'm Driving to Target," which sounds very gleeful about a trip to Target - but when you relisten to the track a few times, a more morose message slowly comes across.
Jinn's sound is described as "absurdist goth pop" and she's influenced by musicians like FKA Twigs and Grimes, but she most vividly reminds me of a more eccentric take on Riot Grrl. There's some '80s influence in there too - which kind of reckons back to a Go-Gos by way of Depeche Mode.
Listen to "I'm Driving to Target" below. I haven't been to Target since before COVID. Do they still sell ICEEs?
