Channeling influences like The Replacements, The Clean and The Stooges, Dublin quartet ‘Jet Setter’ are fast making a name for their fuzzy, straight-to-the-point, Indie-Rock. Debut track ‘Not Yet’ was premiered recently at Stereogum, who went as far as to say that they’re “what The Strokes might have sounded like with Jarvis Cocker out front”. The band are currently NME’s Buzz Band of The Week too, proclaimed as thrashing “along with the pushy zeal of Smashing Pumpkins”, and being likened to “Graham Coxon at his late-90s best”.
Today, their brand new video for ‘Not Yet’ is being showcased and you can certainly see why there is so much hype about these guys.
Jet Setter, a four piece band from Dublin. All four Jet Setter boys have been playing and gigging for years with various bands before they decided to form Jet Setter during a late-night party in the R.A.G.E in Dublin.
The idea was to combine their musical influences into a new, invigorating sound, and with Paddy Ormond on lead guitar, Neil Dexter on drums, Jeffrey Courtney on bass and Ross Hamer providing snapshot vocals, the result is original, refreshing and powerful. Jet Setter are getting ready to release a limited edition vinyl double single with Any Other City, who’s previous releases include the likes of James Vincent McMorrow, Villagers, Squarehead, and most recently Girl Band. Jet Setter will be touring the UK and Ireland in early summer 2014.
