Jensen Sportag "Bellz"
It's been over two years since new original material has arrived from Jensen Sportag, but by the sound of "Bellz"—the outfit's first single from the forthcoming Stealth of Days LP (out this fall via Cascine)—the pair has only refined its craft in that time. As we heard on the group's Pure Wet EP from 2011, Nashville-based artists Austin Wilkinson and Elvis Craig have an uncanny knack for melding together decades of musical influence, and "Bellz" successfully follows suit. Jensen Sportag splices together a bevy of pop-friendly sonic flashbacks into a sleek, soul-infused package for its new single—the results of which aren't so much nostalgic as somehow just warmly familiar.
