Seasons greetings and happy new year from Jets Overhead to you! Just sitting in the living room on this stormy-wintery-west-coast-of-Canada afternoon staring at my weird little Christmas tree, listening to the rain on the windows and feeling really thankful and excited about all the sweet things that happened with JOH in 2011, and all the sweet things to come in 2012.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I love 11’s. And I feel strangely satisfied that we recorded our forthcoming album in the last months of this year. Or maybe this strange satisfaction comes from the fact that we got to live in New York City for six weeks and make a record with producer, guru, man-crush, hero and friend Emery Dobyns. I can’t wait for you guys to hear it…and man, we hope you like it as much as we do. It’s the sound of five creatures from Victoria falling in love with NYC and the creative lifeforce there – I feel like I can hear it shimmering inside in the songs…be curious to know if you guys can hear it too. The album will be released spring 2012. Zippity-doo-da!
Wishing you guys all the best and hope to see you at a show in the new year!
