Brijean‘s new album, Feelings, is out February 26, 2021 via Ghostly International.
Consisting of vocalist and percussionist Brijean Murphy and multi-instrumentalist and producer Doug Stuart, Brijean is the Oakland duo who successfully combined lounge-y disco and percussive grooves on their 2019 debut album Walkie Talkie – albeit this description is a bit reductive as jazz, latin rhythms and soul also occupy a preponderant place in the record.
Their new album Feelings, which is described as more expansive in range and energy thanks to the addition of live drummers, strings, and synths, also marks a move for Murphy. “I think in valuing myself as elemental, and not an “aux” percussionist, encouraged me to make this project, with the undoubted support and talents of Doug Stuart, and has also encouraged me to collaborate with many different people,” she explained. To introduce this colourful project, they have already shared the visuals for the trippy lead single “Day Dreaming”. Watch the video and pre-order the album via Bandcamp below.
