Description

Since the begining of his career in 2007, Jeremy Jay, the dandy singer, didnt stop bringing out self-produced projects and releases on K Records. Always hard to please and mature, he's delivering a classic pop with new wave tones and with a strong inspiration from his homeland California. After Splash (2010) that was described as "a mix between Pavement and Sonic Youth, the whole played by Siouxie Sioux", and his last record to date Dreamy Diary released in 2011, Jeremy Jay went through two years of doubt, loneliness, a period of creative gestation while he produced on his own some recorded sessions. Jeremy Jay's latest, Abandoned Apartments, feels lived in, familiar, but filled with creaking shadows that go deep into the unknown. A product of several years spent in self-inflicted isolation and at various self-produced recording sessions, it is studied and wiser, culling its synthesizer tones from late-80s goth pop and touching on something darker than anything else Jay's ever made. Jay's characters are full of longing, romance, and regrets, living their lives in bustling late night metro stations. They are vivid and moving. Abandoned Apartments is melodramatic in its emotions, exacting in its details; Jay has taken his time making exactly what he intended, and it buzzes iridescently, full of electricity, somewhere in the darkened distance.
