2000 Trees 2014: Boy Jumps Ship

Boy Jumps Ship

These four Tyne-Wearians formed Boy Jumps Ship in 2010 and by 2011 and after the release of their Debut EP and the follow-up Engines, were ear marked as the the next band to break out of the North East. Support slots with big-name bands and headline slots at the Academy ensued and they managed to amass a strong legion of followers while they honed their craft.

More recently, last month in fact it was announced they had signed to respectable independent Rude Records, home of Bedouin Soundclash and I am the Avalance and sees the release this month of the follow up to 2012’s EP Be Good, Be Gracious.

Once you’ve heard them their sound is quite obviously well ingratiated with their music though some tracks like Backstays & Halywards is BJS at their most math-rock inspired, there’s touches of straight-rock, punk and indie in all their songs but they do well at making each song stand out from their counterparts. They’re lyrically strong and musically robust, perfect for sunset at 2000 Trees.

They’re also playing Think Tank in Newcastle tonight if you happen to be in the area..
