Jizzy Pearl’s Love Hate has today released the new single titled ‘Gonna Take You Higher’ from their upcoming album ‘Hell, CA’ dropping in February, 2022 via Golden Robot Records.
If you were raised in the late Eighties/early Nineties like I was, you were heavily influenced musically by bands like Love/Hate. I remember seeing ‘Why Do You Think They Call It Dope‘ and became instantly obsessed. The song was a music monster all over the airwaves. Whenever we would hear Jizzy on the radio in the background shout those infamous words everyone in the room stopped what they were doing and joined in.
What we get with ‘Gonna Take You Higher’ is more refined. Aged and weathered, by a wiser Jizzy, the song is the perfect evolution of Love/Hate with everything that made you love ‘Blackout In A Red Room’, ‘wasted in America, and everything after.
It’s one thing to maintain a musical consistency for this long, its another thing to do it and make it sound naturally.
About ‘Gonna Take You Higher’
‘Gonna Take You Higher’ was preceded by two absolutely cracking singles ‘Wanna Be Somebody’ and ‘Soul Mama’ which both show Jizzy in fine form and gives a strong indication as to what to expect from HELL, CA.
‘Gonna Take You Higher’s surreal vocals and heavy guitars summon up visions of old Led Zeppelin and Richie Blackmore’s ‘Rainbow’. The latest single from Jizzy Pearl’s Love/Hate is about Jack Parsons, one of the pioneers of rocketry aviation who also happened to be a devotee of Aleister Crowley. It’s “gonna take you higher than you’ve ever been!”
The spirit of Sunset Strip is still well and truly alive and rockin’ and so is JIZZY PEARL’S LOVE/HATE. New record HELL, CA. will be available in February 2022 through Golden Robot Records.
