Actively pushing and pulling between pop sensibilities and punk attitude since 2011, JFAL are not only a dab hand at the swap of instruments, but first and foremost at timbering strong melodies, viral in their catchiness, zested with questioning, provocative and wistful lyrics – oozing out as opalescent tales of passion, murder, visions and friendship. Meeting in the middle of the oblique and the real, »Her Most Criminal Crimes« can evoke smiles or shivers, depending on your state of mind. An album that sparkles like the charming chance-child of jangle-pop simplicity and post-punk disorder with a preference for resourceful originality over standard technique.
