It's hard to pin point just exactly where Berlin-based artist, Jinka, is coming from with her debut release "Trash From The Past."
Chock-full of influences from sugary pop through to minimalistic electronica with touches of indie rock, "Trash From The Past" has a distinctly original vibe that drew me in from the first listen.
An ear-catching indie guitar riff competes for attention amongst a sonic barrage of electronic fireworks as the Transylvanian's alluring vocals create a sense of calm amongst the aural chaos. Speaking about the track Jinka stated:
"At the beginning of the song, Trash From The Past might make you feel like you’re attending a Formula 1 race, while there’s seagulls fighting over a piece of hot dog right next to you, but if your ears are sonically hardened and you get past this initial phase of irritation, I hope that the listener becomes intrigued by the power of its punkesque binary stop-and-go structure, the catchiness of its joyful melodies and the comforting message that the ability to forget is a strange skill facilitating the pursuit of happiness."
The accompanying video is also bonkers and described as 'an LSD trip into Jinka's world,' something I certainly agree with. There's something about "Trash From The Past" that had me instantly hooked and I'm very interested to see what Jinka has in store next.
