Since getting together in a garage over ten years ago, Toronto alt rock band Jane’s Party have been on a journey as songwriters and musicians, experimenting with new sounds, yet never forgoing tracks that have simply strong, memorable melodies and pop-leaning hooks. That’s probably why songs like “Live Again”, off their new album of the same name, sound so perfectly crafted.
A track about reflecting on a past version one’s self, the track has the kind of fully-realized harmonies that recall 70’s AM radio, with slippery guitar lines, pub rock drums, and the kind of lyrics that recall folk storytellers like Dawes (“Now everybody wants a piece of me. Now everybody’s in shock. You took the fun out of the mystery. You Lost the keys to the lock”). The track simply pops with feel-good energy.
