Jammerzine has an exclusive interview with Spacette. As a bonus, we may also have the very first review of their new EP ‘You Don’t Have To Rise To Shine’.
No copy and paste premieres here, folks! Why did I say that? Because bands and artists put their hearts and souls into these tracks and they deserve the best promotion they can get. And this is none more evident than in Spacette. As you will hear in the interview, this artist brought back precious memories I didn’t realize I had. They have that sound. That sound of home. Lazy summer days of childhood I thought once gone relived to a new soundtrack to those memories. ‘120 Minutes’ on MTV with that goth girl I wanted as a girlfriend.
Those songs I thought I just heard I now listen to because of Spacette. They have this style that, while all their own, take what I love to the next level. Every song is as much orchestrated as it is recorded. Written from the heart and that heart is on their sleeves. Melodic harmonies carefully laid over breezy tracks with a style that was long ago realized but still getting honed.
In this interview we talk with Spacette’s Jordan Heimburger about said music as well as the beginnings, future plans and more.
‘You Don’t Have To Rise To Shine’ drops today (buy links and socials below).
When Spacette launched in March 2020, LA-based Jordan Heimburger didn’t know he was creating a musical idea built to thrive during the weird years of the pandemic—and then come out from hiding when the time was right.
The time is right now. We’re stepping outside our rooms and finding the sunshine exhilarating but a little too bright. We’re out among people and feeling fresh energy, but that energy is tinged with anxiety.
Spacette’s new work has a distinctly dreamy vibe, a natural evolution from 2020’s self-titled debut, given the shifts in the world between releases. That first EP was a mix of dystopian themes and sci-fi imagery. “Neptune” brings Spacette out of isolation and into the natural world. It’s not just in the lyrics, either. It’s in the lush, spacious vocal harmonies and airy instrumentation. Cold isolation has given way to something brighter and warmer, but still a little vulnerable.
