I Woke Up Like This: Jinjer – “Words of Wisdom”

I’ve been seeing the name Jinjer a lot lately and every time I do I put on this song, so it’s not surprising it seeped into my subconscious. I would say I’m not sure how this band got on my rotation as they’ve got a few red flags: slightly djenty, wholly metalcore in every sense since it’s become a dirty word, touring with Cradle of Filth… etc. However, the music, while formulaic, is clever enough to not be stale, but the obvious standout is that every aspect of Tatiana Shmailyuk’s vocals, from the guttural growls to her soaring singing, is engaging and impressive.
