intro

Fabulous debut EP from Oxford-based indie/shoegazing five piece International Jetsetters, which includes in its line-up two current members of the Jesus and Mary Chain, Mark Corzer and Loz Colbert


‘Heart is Black’ is the debut EP from Oxford-based indie/shoegazing five piece International Jetsetters, which includes in its line-up two current members of the Jesus and Mary Chain, Mark Crozer and Loz Colbert. ‘Inside Out’ is full on rock ‘n’ roll with a cool retro sound and a not-as-angry Jesus and Mary Chain fusion. Guitarist and singer Crozer’s vocals have an early 90’s shoegazing sound. ‘Inside Yourself’ is much darker, like a moody Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, with some full-on guitar and hard hitting drums from Colbert, who also used to play with Ride. ‘Never Slows Down’ is slower, with a vocal from the group’s second female singer Fi McFall, who surprisingly sounds like Antony of the Johnsons. It takes a while for the music to pick up pace but when it does it works well. ‘My Redemption’ also features Fi on vocal. It is a slow burning, gritty number with strong guitars and drums. The title track is slow with both electric and acoustic guitars and cello, coming over like moody Nick Cave or the Cure at their most reflective. ‘Never Slow Down (Demo)’ is sung by Crozer whereas the other version is sung by McFall. This version is better pacedand much faster, and has more of a shoegazing sound. A fantastic first release.
