While building off the ‘90s-crushed guitar rock of The Jin’s Death Wish EP (2019), with a bit more room to breathe on the upcoming, 10- song It’s a Life— recorded in Vancouver with producer Dave Genn (54-40)—the trio also detour through cello-emboldened fields of Americana (“Clementine”), gloom-laden proto-psych (“Jin Sabbath”) and life-contemplating alt-ballads (“Crossroads”). With a new album now on the horizon, The Jins are planning to tour for the first time since Death Wish’s “She Said” unexpectedly took off on TikTok and brought the band to an even bigger streaming audience (the song is 7.5 million and counting on Spotify). The Jins are Ben Larsen (vocals, guitar), Hudson Partridge (bass) and Jamie Warnock (drums, vocals).
