CNJR (kon-jer) (verb):
Weaving the melancholic struggle in our discontent dreams.
Founded in the rainy pacific northwest, and currently based in Guanajuato Mexico, CNJR is a nomadic project drawing from a wide range of music influences, life experiences, and living under the ever crumbling political reality of global capitalism, patriarchy, white supremacy, and imperialism.
Fusing retro synthesizers, dark cinematic science fiction themes, post-rock, electronic music, IDM, synthwave, darkwave, downtempo, instrumental hip-hop, indie electronic, witch house, and various other influences, CNJR covers a vast emotional spectrum with music that is meant to inspire a journey.
‘Hive Mind’, the debut EP, was released on October 19 2018, and was preceded by a single titled Ansible, which will also included two remix versions from Sun Glitters and Yppah. Psychadelic, dark, ominous, but with a touch of hope and the complexity of survival, ‘Hive Mind’ strings listeners along through a nuanced range of emotional palettes.
‘WSTLND’ the debut full length LP, will be released in June 2019. ‘WSTLND’ Explores the struggle to survive the human experience, the complexities of mental health and depression, and the alienation of being queer. WSTLND is a heavily emotive experience. CNJR combines complex electronic sounds, retro synthesizers, recorded instrumentation, and occasional vocals to uniquely create a dark electro/analog tapestry that draws listeners into an introspective experience.
The first peak at ‘WSTLND’, a two track single titled ‘ISV / MSS’ is out now.
