Christine Jane’s eclectic tastes and world wide travels lead her to find her sound: ‘cinematic blues’. Her songs are deeply personal and reflect on loss, love, listlessness and the shadows of despair. Her latest single, written on a tiny guitar (called a guitalelele) and using eclipse mints and hands scratching demin jeans for percussion, sees Christine Jane reinventing herself in the strange space betwixt trysts. As well, excellent new releases from Grant Lee-Phillips and Dehd.
