â€œDeliciously demented amalgamation create[s] something genuinely unprecedentedâ€
The Mystery Jets sound and vision places them as the latest in a long line of Great British pysch pop
songsmiths, and beyond. The ones who delve into a deep pool of influences and amazingly make balkan folk to choral harmonies sing like the perfect recipe for classic pop. A band who care and actually understand the basics of a good rock and roll song, yet tactfully flirt with a little bit of pop and a whole lot of dance and soul.
Having recently been locked away in a London studio with producer/remix wizard & Trash Founder Erol Alkan (he â€œkeeps kids dancingâ€, donâ€™t you know) theyâ€™ve summoned up a wondrous array of toil and trouble for the next album. Songs the band simply cannot wait to try out on the road this fall for you good people!
â€œIntimate yet epic psychedelic popâ€ â€“ Spin
Bloggers, reviewers and fans alike should try with all their might to come and taste a little of whatâ€™s been cooking in the Mystery Jetâ€™s musical cauldron this summer â€“ sure to be spiked with allsorts of goodies drawn from many-a-sources that tickle the fancies of this Eel Pie Island Quintet.
â€œAn eclectic array of mystical soundscapes with a poetic lyrical edge.â€ â€“ Interview
After having to cancel their last US tour due to the dreaded â€œVâ€ wordâ€“ Indeed, Visaâ€™s held them back last spring, but we assured you theyâ€™d be back with a bang. Paperwork now completed and immigration officials satisfied, the wait has been well worth it, for theyâ€™ve been asked to join their long time mates Jamie Reynolds, Simon Taylor & James Righton of Klaxons on a fantastical voyage across the New World and just for good measure, theyâ€™ll be headlining yet more dates on both coasts and between whilst
theyâ€™re over here.
â€œThey are modern troubadours; ale-soaked vagabonds with tales to tell and maids to make swoon.â€ â€“ Flavorpill
Comparisons have been made with other musical marvels such as The Kinks, Early Pink Floyd, Syd Barrett and David Bowie â€“ which you canâ€™t deny when you hear their debut album Zootime, released earlier this year
on Dim Mak.
