Jean Orange – “ITCHIN’ OUT”


Exuding a hazy late-night enigma, “ITCHIN’ OUT” is a new single from Jean Orange. Mysterious guitar twangs lead into a subdued vocal presence, with the jangling guitars and steady percussion assembling a hypnotic mix. Lyrics address “themes of hyper-masculinity and ‘girls on drugs,'” fading at a murky ambient mid-section prior to the initial jangle-pop exterior’s re-emergence, showing shades of pop-punk. An eclectic and atmospheric success, “ITCHIN’ OUT” has me anticipating what’s next from Jean Orange.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of January 2023’ Spotify playlist.
