Reggae 7-piece They Say Jump are out in force to launch their brand new EP, ‘Lift Your Mood’, at Hoxton’s Bar & Kitchen on 15th August. Collapsing the brass-laden tones of Latin and jazz with the jauntiness of reggae, ska, and R&B, They Say Jump’s sound is designed to make you dance, sweat and, as their name suggests, jump. Out on August 12th, the EP features singles ‘Can’t Chase Me’ and the Singersroom-supported ‘Twilight’.
Forming in 2010, and originally fronted by alternative soul singer Kwabs, They Say Jump are now made up of Adrian Benn on vocals, Rhys Owen on saxophone, Ben Pearce on guitar, Sam Edgington on bass guitar, Luke Allwood on keys, Jackson Mathod on trumpet, and Mike Clowes on drums. Bringing together a passion for music of all cultures, they have garnered a strong London following from their passionate and energetic live shows, including spots atSecret Garden Party, the Brixton Hootenanny, and Wilderness Festival. Following their initial live success, They Say Jump released their debut album, ‘One Hundred Summers’, in September 2013, and were subsequently touted as “ones to watch” by Harper’s Bazaar Magazine.
Now ready to kick on with their sublime new ‘Lift Your Mood’ EP, Hoxton’s Bar & Kitchen is in for a raucous reggae treat.
