Honest, vulnerable and full of energy!
Hi Jagged Jein, welcome to LA Music Review! Tell us a little bit about you and your music.
Coming off a lineup change after 2021’s Typical Honey LP…
Long Beach CA’s Jagged Jein is back with a new record. Their new EP “Pith & The Peel” is a vitalizing, four song model of the band’s dynamics and a glimpse into their sonic evolution.
Jagged Jein is the moniker of Kadie DiCarlo, a singer/songwriter/visual artist who built her stature in the 2010’s by playing intimate, psychedelic folk rock around Southern California. In 2016 DiCarlo put a band together, which later spawned 2021’s Typical Honey LP. A few months after the release, the band went through a renewal, changing 3/5ths of the band, thus forging the creation of what would become “Pith & The Peel.”
Post-transformation, the new lineup sought to make a new chapter for Jagged Jein. They began recording in February 2022 while still in the process of writing the songs. Jagged Jein has been playing shows around Long Beach and Los Angeles and plans to expand their reach on the West Coast in 2023.
