New Sunburnt Jets Single
listen to the songs.
a few words...
Returning from a 1234-day hiatus, Sunburnt Jets releases a new single Stare and Pretend with b-side Out of Luck on Friday 21st November 2014.
The two brand new songs were recorded and mixed in Boylan's Stoneybatter home-studio, with mastering by Stephen Quinn (Patrick Kelleher, Subplots). The songs were written and recorded over the last 18 months. Some of the posters on the studio wall influencing the sounds included Dinosaur Jr, Warpaint and Casio Tone For The Painfully Alone with old favourites My Bloody Valentine and Sonic Youth continuing to leave an impression.
Sunburnt Jets is the moniker of Monaghan-born, Japan-made and Dublin-based musician Colin Boylan who is the lead guitarist with the loud guitar-pop band Bouts. Boylan's 2010 debut album (Low Flying Crow) and the 2011 three-track EP which followed (retreat // out of here // blood brick) received praise and plays from the likes of Nialler9, Jim Carroll (Irish Times), GoldenPlec and Harmless Noise.
Stare and Pretend and Out of Luck feature the same melting pot of different genres which Boylan's former housemate likens to Kevin Shields going on a pop music buzz and working in experimental, detuned guitars. The results are scuzzy, lo-fi sounds with nods to shoegaze and dream pop.
