Premiere: Hear a Stunning, Synth-Heavy Cut from Jex Opolis
'Ravines' drops later this month on Good Timin'.
Ravines follows a decade of dancefloor singles—all but one of which have dropped via Good Timin’—and was conceived at Jex’s home studio in Brooklyn, with live instrumentation added at NYC’s famed Oscilloscope Laboratories alongside engineers Andre Kelman (Phoenix, the Beastie Boys) and CZ Wang (Mood Hut). The album also finds Jex exploring melody and more pop-focused structures, as he explains: “Working on this record was about redefining my craft. Like a kid exploring the forest—building new structures, finding new textures. Having fun but also spooking yourself a little.”
Like its cover artwork by Elvis Barlow-Smith, Ravines is a multi-colored collection of warped pop cuts that interpret everything from disco to jazz, funk, and house.
Ahead of the April 14 release, you can pre-order Ravines via the Good Timin’ Bandcamp page, with LP cut “Après-MIDI” streaming in full via the player below.
