One of the year's most-hyped debut albums and one that absolutely warrants it. An experimental waltz through timbres and tones.
I Love You Jennifer B is the debut LP from London-based duo Jockstrap (Georgia Ellery of Black Country, New Road and Taylor Skye) and it is an album of smart and sublimely disorientating pop music.
"unquestionably one of the best debut albums of the last five years."
- [10/10] Loud & Quiet
Discussing the album's release, Georgia Ellery and Taylor Skye explained: “I Love You Jennifer B is a collection of Jockstrap tracks that have been 3 years in the making. Everything on it is pretty singular sounding so we hope there is a track on there for everyone and something that speaks to you and says ‘I’m a banger.’”
Skye added of ‘Glasgow’ “‘Glasgow’ is our coming of age, moving forward, long-distance, travelling, beautiful bosk, wonderful thicket song.” And Ellery said of the song’s subject: “Glasgow is a great city, perhaps my favourite in the UK! Only downside is that it’s so damn cold all the time.”

"A record creaking and groaning under the weight of its ideas." - [5/5] DIY
"It’s positively thrilling to witness a band perpetually committed to pushing boundaries and creating music unlike anything else released before it." - [8/10] The Line Of Best Fit
For us, what really thrilled us the most about this fine debut is how it genuinely surprises at every opportunity. It is a brilliantly sculptured trip through genres with such genuine excitement. Smart and fun, this really is a corker.
