Jeremy Jay Debuts “Lite Beam” Video / Announces US Spring Tour, SXSW Dates To Come

Sophomore LP Slow Dance Out March 24th On K Records
On European Tour Now
Love Everlasting” 12” Single Out Now


Premieres “Where We Could Go Tonite” : Jeremy Jay manages to capture teen melancholy without sounding like he’s in the middle of puberty. The best example of this is on Jay’s new album Slow Dance is “Where Could We Go Tonight,” the closing track, which is ostensibly about driving around aimlessly with your friends.

RCRD LBL Premieres “Love Everlasting” :

Prefix Media Premieres “Love Everlasting” : “”Love Everlasting” features an airy disco synth in addition to the usual funked-up guitars, so you can sway a little bit in the dark when you hear it.”

Pitchfork Media : “In many ways, Jeremy Jay appears to be a man out of time. Sporting a mop-top and coarse wool blazer, Jay draws on such esoteric yet melody-minded songwriters of the past as Harry Nilsson and Bill Fay (with a little bit of post-punk disaffection thrown in for good measure). And while he’s no throwback act, it’s not hard to imagine a tune of his gracing the same classic film soundtracks populated by Simon and Garfunkel and Cat Stevens. ”

XLR8R : “He’s a beautiful rebel from a Peter Pan storybook creating a garage-punk-tinged soundtrack to an old movie”

The Fader (Style Q & A ) : “I love Francoise Hardy for her basic French sensibility of softness, romance and passion. It’s pillowy in the coolest way.”

All Music Guide

: “Part poet, part ’50s teen idol and part ghost, Jeremy Jay begins is in a place where girls have “fairytale looks” and candied apples are served for lunch, where dreams, fantasies and movies collide, and where Gene Vincent, Buddy Holly, Morrissey and Alan Vega are loved equally. ”

The Music Slut : “Intelligent, concise, melodic, distinctive & ravishing.”

Spin : “takes equal cues from Richman’s solo output, ’50s slow dance favorites  and Hunky Dory-era David Bowie . Jay’s tunes are perfect for getting
lonely, being together, and everything indefinable in between.”

Flavorpill : “With his fey, vaguely British voice, arrangements dappled with woozy keyboard fills, and mop-headed dandy look, Jay comes off like Brian Ferry
singing bittersweet anthems to the discotheque’s post-4am stragglers.”

Jeremy Jay is a mixture of a storyteller, artist and singer. Following a series of 7″ singles, he released his debut LP, A Place Where We Could Go on K in Spring 2008 to rave reviews. Currently, he splits his time between living in Paris and Los Angeles, the dream cities of the French New Wave and Hollywood. Similar to films, Jeremy identifies with the visual stories of life and love, and touches on everything human; he is always in the process of writing and recording, playing the guitar and taking long walks. Jeremy is getting acquainted to living in Paris, but still draws much of his inspiration from the films of iconic American teen auteur John Hughes.

With his new single “Love Everlasting and full-length Slow Dance (both released by K), Jeremy has created his own brand of urgent pop music that fits perfect in the house parties and punk rock clubs that he prefers to play. In 2009 Jeremy will be touring Europe, the USA, Australia, New Zealand and the UK.
