CNJR - Presents Two New Singles And Music Video

Mexican act CNJR who fuses retro synthesizers, dark cinematic science fiction themes, post-rock, electronic music, IDM, synthwave, darkwave, downtempo, instrumental hip-hop, indie electronic, witch house, and various other influences, has released today two new singles and video. You can watch the video and listen to both singles in the players below.
"ISV" and "MSS" is the first glimpse off of the upcoming debut album from CNJR (titled WSTLND). The two singles are a dark, emotive journey, rich in both sonic complexity and impassioned energy. The instrumentals are heavily electronic, but with elements of analog warmth, retro synths, and recorded instrumentation.
WSTLND, the debut album from CNJR is coming on 7th June via Future Archive Recordings. Exploring the struggle to survive the human experience, the complexities of mental health and depression, and the alienation of being queer. WSTLND is a heavily emotive experience. CNJR combines complex electronic sounds, retro synthesizers, recorded instrumentation, and occasional vocals to uniquely create a dark electro/analog tapestry that draws listeners into an introspective experience.
CNJR comments: "When setting out to write the music for WSTLND I was in the midst of a lot of emotional turmoil. Struggling with mental health, with depression, with what was happening in the world around me. Continuing to struggle from feelings of alienation, feeling misunderstood, feeling different. Struggling with being queer and how to navigate the experience. I felt the angst of my teenage years returning but with a very different flavor, mixed with a far more critical and complex understanding of the world and of why I feel the way I do. I wanted the music to reflect where I am. To be an exploration of this darkness and of the pain and struggle and trauma that all of us endure to survive. I did not necessarily want it to be bleak, because in the experience of this darkness is something that unites us, something shared, and also partially makes us who are. It's part of being alive, here, right now. Music and Art for me is always partially about escapism, but also about reflection. It's probably why I love speculative fiction, love sci-fi, adventure stories, myths, and legends. There will always be an element of this sneaking through my music as I tend to be drawn towards sounds and arcs that feel like you are on a journey. Something epic, something bigger than our day to day lives. So as WSTLND came together, it sort of naturally fused these two themes. Struggle and darkness, with a journey, a cinematic audio tapestry. The result, I suppose, is introspective dark cinematic electronic. If someone could coin a genre name for that I'd really appreciate it." Link
