The MuseBox today announced that buzzing NYC shoegaze and dream-pop artist Jennie Vee has released the enchanting video for her single “Spying,” courtesy of an exclusive premiere in The New York Post. Directed by Katrin Albert, and mixed by Snow Patrol’s Paul Wilson, “Spying” comes on the heels of Vee’s recent tour with Lana Del Rey. 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,” Vee 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 Vee and her upcoming Spying LP is available on her official website.
According to NYC’s The Deli Magazine, Jennie Vee is “a rather, shall we say, glamorous-looking NYC musician and singer-songwriter who plays a brand of dream pop that flirts with modern rock.” In 2014, Vee caught the ear of Grammy Award-winning producer Chris Lord-Alge (Bruce Springsteen, Green Day, Stevie Nicks) when he handpicked and remixed Vee’s song “Wicked.”
Years after Alan McGee left Vee a handwritten compliment because he liked her demos, the Creation Records founder immediately booked her for his first-ever Creation Unsigned Acoustic Night. In the UK and Europe, Vee is signed to 25 Hour Convenience Store, owned and operated by Gary Powell of The Libertines.
Vee’s dedication to memorable songwriting reminds listeners of what they love about ‘80s college rock. 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. Vee’s vocals, unfettered, deeply emotional, feature perfectly arranged verses, driving pre-choruses, and finally, airy, memorable choruses.
Vee 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 Vee’s impossible physique instill a breathtaking quality. After a serendipitous DJ gig, Courtney Love became Vee’s immediate BFF, soon describing Vee as her “muse.”
