Jets Overhead tour dates (CMJ), “Heading For Nowhere” (Free MP3)


Victoria, BC quintet Jets Overhead is set to play select U.S. shows in support of No Nations (Vapor Records), their second full-length album.

Oct 14 – The Roxy, Los Angeles, CA (with The Temper Trap)
Oct 17 – The Crocodile, Seattle, WA (with The Temper Trap)
Oct 22 – Arlene’s Grocery, New York, NY (CMJ – 11pm set time)
Oct 24 – Shoreline Amphitheater, Mountain View, CA (Bridge School Benefit Concert – side stage)

These upcoming dates will showcase the soaring melodies constructed throughout No Nations. Propelling the album’s free-flowing modern rock textures is the breathy vocal interplay of the husband and wife duo of Adam Kittredge and Antonia Freybe-Smith. Guitarist Piers Henwood (a cousin of Kittredge), bassist Jocelyn Greenwood and drummer Luke Renshaw coalesce the band’s trademark atmospheric sound evident in the single “Heading For Nowhere” which recently made its video world premiere through AOL’s Spinner Network in the U.S., Canada and the U.K.

All – “No Nations, is a pleasant, gently trippy throwback to the ’90s shoegaze scene filled with waves of guitars, dreamily hazy vocals, and sweetly sung melodies.” – “No Nations has a solid balance of fist pumping and navel gazing… an album that is worth your attention.” – “No Nations is an incredibly nuanced album of slow-burn art-pop meditations” – “Heading for Nowhere” is full of coma-inducing hooks and dreamtime lyrics.”
The Lefsetz Letter – “No Nations” is a throwback to that era. Drop the proverbial needle and the everyday world will fall away. You’ll be immersed in a bath of warm oil. ”
