|Jeremy Jay + Planet Earth + Ark People
Tuesday, June 02
To simply rip off the biog on the K Records site would be both lazy
and very, very easy. So here it is:
Jeremy Jay is a mixture of a storyteller, artist and singer. Following
a series of 7" singles, he released his debut LP, A Place Where
We Could Go on K in Spring 2008. Currently, he splits his time between
living in Paris and Los Angeles, the dream cities of the French New
Wave and Hollywood. Similar to films, Jeremy identifies with the visual
stories of life and love, and touches on everything human; he is always
in the process of writing and recording, playing the guitar and taking
walks to new places. Jeremy is getting acquainted to living in Paris,
but still draws much of his inspiration from American artists like Andy
Warhol and iconic teen filmmaker John Hughes.
Planet earth are a tiny bit more local, really rather delicate and Lo
Fi, very good and connected to Young and Lost who we like very much.
Ark People will be gracing our stage for the second time and this quote
made me laugh and isn't completely inaccurate: "Sort of a mix
of Beirut and Interpol, the pair produce a grandiose version of the
dark pop that current next-big-thingers White Lies are riding the wave
of, but without the Killers comparisons." Yep. No Killers
comparisons here. Thank. God.
