Two years after sophomore full-length No Trail And Other Unholy Paths, Evan Patterson (from Louisville post-hardcore trio Young Widows) returned with Jaye Jayle project. Prisyn is out now via Sargent House. According to the press release, Patterson takes his boldest leap into unknown territories, capturing immediate moments in his ever-shifting surroundings with the most basic tool at his disposal: the GarageBand app on an iPhone.
Instead of his usual backing band, he paired up with Ben Chisholm (White Horse, Revelator, Chelsea Wolfe) as collaborator and producer to create an electronic album completely unlike anything else from Jaye Jayle and an ambitious step from 2018’s album.
You can check the full streaming here and a playlist with the songs which inspired his music. He also shared a new video for the track “A Cold Wind“. It was directed by Josh Ford. Of the song, Evan Patterson comments: “‘A Cold Wind’ is about the painful infatuation that is love. Those moments of not being able to enjoy or take in the beauty of one’s surroundings without obsessive comparisons to that of a lover. Not lusting, but desiring for comfort, security, and calmness of another.”
