Jerskin Fendrix is the electronic singer songwriter flipping the script on avant-garde and pop music. Following 2 years spent nurturing his sound at fertile South London haven The Windmill with the likes of Jockstrap, Black Country, New Road and black midi, he released his debut album Winterreise in April 2020 to critical acclaim — earning him the Loud & Quiet Album of the Year 2020 award. A renowned albeit rare live performer, he supported black midi on their debut 11-date UK tour and features on a christmas single with the band released in December 2018 and played shows internationally, notably at Donau Festival in Austria & Saint Ghetto in Switzerland.
As a classically trained pianist and violinist, Fendrix's practice and ambition extends far beyond the realm of traditional songwriting. His avant-garde take on electronic pop cannibalises and appropriates elements of pop culture at the service of very personal songs. All of his output has an emotionally playful sarcastic take on the tropes of modern life, whilst also delving inwards. Most of all, it can’t be easily pigeonholed.
