Peter Jennings Disciples – Not Enough Bridge Single
Release date: 15 April 2023
Label: Intentionally Vaygh Enterprises
Hometown: Rockford, Illinois, USA
Influences: Nine Inch Nails, KMFDM, Nirvana
Take a metalhead-turned-grunge kid born in the gap between Gen X and the Millennials, feed them a steady diet of Nine Inch Nails and KMFDM, then hand them a synthesizer, bass guitar, and drum machine. The result? Peter Jennings Disciples – the music project of Darius McCaskey: author, poet, and musician from Rockford, Illinois.
Peter Jennings Disciples follow up on their sophomore EP, Bad News, with a collection of remixes for the song “Not Enough Bridge.”
Ozzy’s wrong: there are unforgivable sins. The saying goes that it’s “water under the bridge,” but sometimes there’s too much history, too much trauma, to let bygones be bygones. To save yourself from the raging floodwaters, you might have to let someone else get swept away…
Chicago post-punk duo BELLHEAD discard the fragility of the original mix and instead turn in a somber, gritty take on the track. Stomping drums and dirty bass drive the song forward, ending on a note that questions whether this is a song about condemnation or forgiveness.
Hailing from New Zealand, Kiwillian transforms the song into a trippy delve into a chaotic psyche. Experimental electronic sounds showcase scattered thoughts and conflicted emotions – is it really too late to forgive and forget?
Circle Six lulls the listener into a false sense of security in their remix, preserving the delicate intro of the original track before putting the industrial grinder to it. The wobbly, almost dubstep-like bass and punchy drums contrast with a soulful outro to round out the song.
Not Enough Bridge releases on 15 April 2023 on streaming platforms and digital download.
