Follow Hijacked's "Rising Path"
Providing sonic intrigue for the ears and emotional sustenance for the soul, French duo Hijacked are back to remind of the introspective, thoughtful vibe that first piqued our interest several years ago. With the erudite production of Clément Bazin - he has taught at the Conservatoire de Paris - providing an aura of dreamy contemplation for the jazzy soul of singer Jésabel's delicately poised delivery, Hijacked will soon have your consciousness drifting into its own silent reverie with their new "Rising Path" EP.
A lyrical meditation on identity and self-realization that comes washed in cinematic, sweeping waves of intricately swirling electronica and alt-r&b undertones, the EP's four songs chart the introspective journey taken in finding a place in the world. Swathed in gently circulating tides of hazy electronica accents, layers of cascading synths and gently euphoric, danceable grooves, the EP paints soundscapes of ruminative magnetism that both soothe and uplift with a dreamily inspired sophistication. From the inhibition shedding self-determination of "Good Life", to the leap-of-faith optimism of "Seewhat" and the home-is-in-the-heart assurance of "Home", the life-affirming encouragement to determine your own path percolates throughout the EP with a quietly powerful sagacity.
