“Deliciously demented amalgamation create[s] something genuinely unprecedented”
- Flaunt

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 “keeps kids dancing”, don’t you know) they’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!

“Intimate yet epic psychedelic pop” – Spin

Bloggers, reviewers and fans alike should try with all their might to come and taste a little of what’s
been cooking in the Mystery Jet’s musical cauldron this summer – sure to be spiked with allsorts of
goodies drawn from many-a-sources that tickle the fancies of this Eel Pie Island Quintet.

“An eclectic array of mystical soundscapes with a poetic lyrical edge.” – Interview

After having to cancel their last US tour due to the dreaded “V” word– Indeed, Visa’s held them back
last spring, but we assured you they’d be back with a bang. Paperwork now completed and immigration
officials satisfied, the wait has been well worth it, for they’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, they’ll be headlining yet more dates on both coasts and between whilst
they’re over here.

“They are modern troubadours; ale-soaked vagabonds with tales to tell and maids to make swoon.” – Flavorpill

Comparisons have been made with other musical marvels such as The Kinks, Early Pink Floyd, Syd Barrett
and David Bowie – which you can’t deny when you hear their debut album Zootime, released earlier this year
on Dim Mak.

“Charmingly bonkers” – URB

Mystery Jets embody British pop music at its most invigoratingly unique and have added a whole new
dimension to Britain’s thriving young rock ‘n’ roll scene. Songs like ‘Purple Prose’ and ‘Diamonds in the Dark’
are a psychedelic head-trip leading each listener to the peaks of joy and depth of ones misery. A journey
that music lovers have often taken with a little help from classics such as Berlin era Bowie and the stop
start rhythms of Talking Heads.

Other creations such as ‘ZooTime’, ‘You Can’t Fool Me Dennis’, ‘On My Feet’ and ‘Alas Agnes’ all seem like
dispatches from some starry-eyed parallel universe. A universe where Syd Barrett never dropped out of
where the irresistible pop of Dexy’s Midnite Runners can happily co-exist with the Krautrock explorations
of Can, reiterating that even the most forbidding musical forms of the past, like prog rock, are gleefully
re-invented in the smash-and-grab spirit of the present.
