Glass Jaw

From the moment the drumsticks count you in, “Glass Jaw” from San Francisco’s own chokecherry will lure you into oblivion with their garage tunnel, shoegaze skull-crusher. This trio is hitting all the dopamine centers of nostalgia while simultaneously offering up uncut ingenuity with their cryptically withdrawn lyrics.

With a self-coined genre trifecta of ‘shoegaze grunge pop’, chokecherry is a revival of dark, black widow energy wrapped in the foil our generation. Self-produced with a head rush of garage band sonics overlaid a siren ensemble of layered vocal poise, “Glass Jaw” puts an original fingerprint on a historic scene. This being just their debut single that’s been out for less than 2 weeks, they’re already riding a hot streak at nearly 100k streams on Spotify alone in that time without a single editorial playlist.

Also on the docket for Seattle’s upcoming Freakout Festival alongside names including Death Valley Girls, Allah Lahs, and Levitation Room, chokecherry is crushing ceilings with this boundless debut track. Get a listen to their undeniably addictive confluence of dark matter that bursts with all the colors of authenticity – thank me later.
