Jump: Press A are an energetic and dynamic band. Their unique brand of ‘angry pop’ sounds like the lovechild of Shirley Manson and Delores O’Riordan, thrust through a raging maelstrom of drums, bass, keys, guitars and close harmonies.
Their songs are multi-layered mini- epics with dark lyrics that strike hard against a background of quirky riffs and pop driven melodies.
Live, the band take no prisoners and play every show with an energy and sense of urgency unrivalled by many of their contemporaries.
In the last year the band have played headline slots at Leith Festival, Edinburgh University's Fresher's week, The Amnesty Bash, received airplay from BBC Scotland Introducing, DJ Jim Gellatly and performed acoustically on Leith FM. Their 3-track cd sampler has shifted over 600 copies so far and is available as a free download from jumppressa.bandcamp.com.
"If it's loud, energetic and awesome you're after Jump: Press A deliver in spades”
“Their live sound is a melody-fuelled juggernaut with the accelerator rammed to the floor. They unleash an impressive set of gigantic tunes; mighty white-hot melting pots of noise, with impressive vocals and a splintering display of aggressive axewomanship." (Edinburgh Spotlight)
“This band create a panoramic cacophony that is rare, remarkable and pure... Jump: Press A demand that you participate on every level. They demonstrate an unerring
understanding of what makes a great song and will, one day soon, make great records.” (Battle of the Bands feedback)
