Jumpin Spider, the latest addition to the burgeoning Irish music scene, holds forth on a range of short unplacid ideas about how the world works, or Dublin at least. Not a snug fit for the categorisers - a throwback to the future perhaps, with streaming sixties harmonies and razor sharp guitars capturing the newer synthury's love and troubles.
The debut album is both at hand and afoot, with a slew of singles on the way this summer. With forerunner No Good Crooks speaks about the story of a break: a violent left turn by a lorry on life's quays. Same Blue Jeans is about not changing your clothes.
Keen on the whimsical groove and the viral refrain, Jumpin Spider bring arachnid notions of a fallen land, in with a searing personal uplift. The bing to your bang so to speak - an extracted haven of magical thinking.
