PREMIERE: Blue J – “Timezone”

Thursday 07th, December 2017 / 07:00
by Lauren Donnelly

Vancouver-based indie outfit Blue J embrace an enlightened take on nostalgia with their new single, “Timezone.” Their songs are melancholic and free of angst, riding a minimalist electro-pop vibe that gives the quartet’s charmingly brooding music room for reflection.

A dreamy, long-distance love song, “Timezone” is prime space-out music. When you’re still up while the rest of the world’s asleep, the Pacific Standard time zone can feel lonely sometimes. Blue J captures that lonesome late-night reflective state of mind that Vancouverites know so well. All at once morose and optimistic, the youthful “Timezone” would fit right into the soundtrack of a Sofia Coppola film. The perfect companion for solo walks when late night and early morning start to blur.

Vocals by Justice McLellan (formerly of Mesa Luna) are echoey and romantic. With earnest lyrics like “in Robson Square there’s a snowball fight / first dates on the gallery steps / ice skates click as they spin pirouettes,” it’s not quite a Christmas song but it gets you in that cozy, sentimental mindset.

Catch Blue J live December 16 at the Russian Hall for the 10th Annual Kingfisher Bluez Christmas Party with Peach Pit, Bridal Party, Tim the Mute and more.
