jade imagine is a four piece band based out of Melbourne, Australia led by singer, songwriter and general good vibe bringer Jade McInally (previously a member of Teeth & Tongue and currently plays with Jess Ribeiro). Along with bandmates Tim Harvey (Emma Louise, Real Feelings), Liam 'Snowy' Halliwell (The Ocean Party, Ciggie Witch) and Damien Meoli (Teeth and Tongue).
Tinged with wit and self-awareness, the songs are built on guitar lines that move with a satisfying, mid tempo forward-motion. Jade Imagine examine the everyday with an attitude that oscillates between detached and perceptive, each turn of phrase offering a keen insight or a subtle poetic meditation.
McInally will be familiar to those who’ve seen her as a touring member of Teeth & Tongue, bass player for Jess Ribeiro, or as a member of her former project TANTRUMS, but with a 7-inch and an EP to their name as Jade Imagine, the band make music that is subtle and candid, personal and understated, peppered with dry one-liners that stop a listener in their tracks.
