There’s something really special about jade imagine’s brand of dream pop. Hailing from Melbourne, the three piece’s slacker, coastal sound gives a big nod to psych rock sensibilities, and soaks it in heady fuzz.
Recently, they popped into Enmore Audio to give it to us live, in a showcase not only of front-woman Jade McInally’s warm, languid vocals, but deft songwriting by the band. jade imagine performed their song Big Old House, which they described as a metaphor for the mental health, and the need to open the blinds and allow light in.
Through all the low fi, dream pop fuzz, jade imagine deliver a clear message on mental health. Big Old House signals the band’s deft lyricism, and flexes a soft, psych-rock sound. It’s damn lovely.
“It’s about a friend who was having a bad time. I guess maybe it’s kind of a metaphor song for being positive,” Jade said about the song. “Let the light in… Open the blinds.”
Live, Jade looked like a psych rock astronaut – clad in her signature boiler suit, on a mission to awe. You can take in all the beauty of jade imagine’s live performance of Big Old House at Enmore Audio below:
