The Musebox today announced that buzzing NYC shoegaze and dream-pop artist Jennie Vee has released the video for her cover of English rockers Echo and the Bunnymen’s “Lips Like Sugar.” The tasty video release comes as Jennie prepares to play bass for Courtney Love on tour with Lana Del Rey. Jennie’s second EP, Spying, is due out this summer. With a sound that music blog The Autumn Roses describes as “guitars chiming like bells and with satiny melodies, gentle and humane, despite the heartbreak," Jennie has earned comparisons to Metric, Slowdive, and Black Tambourine. Her songs capture her brilliant pop juxtapositions: radio friendly on the surface, authentically indie on the inside. More information on Jennie Vee is available on her official website.   

Last year Jennie caught the ear of Grammy Award-winning producer Chris Lord-Alge (Bruce Springsteen, Green Day, Stevie Nicks) when he handpicked and remixed her song “Wicked.” Years after Alan McGee left a handwritten compliment for Jennie because he liked her demos, the Creation Records founder immediately booked her for his first-ever Creation Unsigned Acoustic Night. Snow Patrol’s Paul Wilson mixed the title track of her upcoming release. In the UK and Europe, Jennie is signed to 25 Hour Convenience Store, owned and operated by Gary Powell of The Libertines. 

Jennie’s dedication to memorable songwriting reminds listeners of what they love about ‘80s college rock. But she also makes her songs her own, steeping her mixes in the soothing brashness of deeply revered shoegaze and dream pop pioneers such as Ride and My Bloody Valentine. Jennie’s vocals, unfettered, deeply emotional, feature perfectly arranged verses, driving pre-choruses, and finally, airy, memorable choruses.

Jennie makes her dream pop sound easy - and look even easier. She’s released sensorial music videos in collaboration with Katrin Albert, a photographer/videographer from Moscow. Lustrous camera work and Jennie’s impossible physique instill a breathtaking quality. After a serendipitous DJ gig, Courtney Love became her immediate BFF. Courtney Love has since described Jennie as her “muse,” and has styled her for several photo and video shoots featuring clothing designs from Love's own Never The Bride line.
