Jeniferever is a four-piece band from Uppsala, Sweden. They have previously released four EPs and one album since 2002, and have played over 250 live shows across Europe. Over the years, they have gained an ever-growing band of admirers, who have bestowed descriptions such as ‘lush’, ‘melodic’, ‘swooping’, ‘glacial’, ‘beautiful’, ‘shimmering’, ‘sublime’, ‘electrifying’ and ‘atmospheric’ on their music.
Some have compared their sound to the physical beauty of their native country, with its aural landscapes of slow-paced melodies which build to orchestral-like climaxes. Stylistically, the music can fit into a number of different genres, with its elements of ambient indie rock, post-rock, shoegaze and dream pop.
Each song is perfectly crafted in a way that lends equal importance to all instruments, with intricate interplay between Martin Sandström’s, Kristofer Jönson’s and Olle Bilius’ guitars, the melodic intertwining of keyboards and Kristofer Jönson’s softly dolorous vocals and the warm heartbeat of Fredrik Aspelin’s drumming.
