Today (July 1st) London-based Reggae/Ska band They Say Jump release their new broody single “Twilight.” Featured on the band’s forthcoming Lift Your Mood EP, the song is a mellow reincarnation of the band’s trademark electro-meets-reggae vibe, this one featuring R&B vocals and melody.
The title “Twilight” refers to the precarious time in between relationships, detailing the confusing, mixed feelings to the sound of rumbling bass and post-dubstep drums.
Backed by muted reggae guitars and a distinctive R&B sound, the song comes from the same electronic timbres of artists like Alex Clare and Kwabs, the latter being the band’s former vocalist.
Formed in 2010, They Say Jump are made up of Adrian Benn on vocals, Rhys Owen on saxophone, Ben Pearce on guitar, Sam Edgington on bass, Luke Allwood on keys, Jackson Mathod on trumpet, and Mike Clowes on drums. Bringing together a passion for music from all cultures, the collective have garnered a strong London following from their energetic live shows, including spots at Secret Garden Party, the Brixton Hootenanny, and Wilderness Festival.
Following their initial live success, the band released their debut album, One Hundred Summers in September 2013.
