LONDON (PRWEB) June 4, 2008

Here is what the media said about Jyrojets' releases and about the band.
"a swaggering solid indie-rock album" Clash Magazine "many songs with hit potential ***" Q Magazine "hottest download" Sunday Times "they deserve to headline stadiums" Daily Record "a band on the cusp of greatness" BBC Radio Scotland "best kept secret at SXSW" San Francisco Chronicle Produced and engineered by Osman Kent and Nick Mitchell, the album is of two very distinct moods, segueing from sing-along hard rock anthems to a more tender stripped back sound. Recorded live at London's Songphonic Studios, the album's 14 tracks (one hidden) captures the band's raw energy and musicianship well.
Jyrojets are a five-piece indie rock band from Inverness (Scotland) with a knack for great tunes, great lyrics and swaggering anthemic soundscapes. They describe their sound as a heavy kick of Nirvana with Simon & Garfunkel harmonies, Beatlesque melodies and plenty of attitude.
When they opened for Richard Ashcroft (at his request) in front of 10,000 people at Glasgow SECC, he called them "a great young band".
During the past 12 months they have been touring relentlessly, including an 80-gig tour of the USA on a double-decker London Bus as well as various stints in the UK and Russia. They opened for Kaiser Chiefs, Richard Ashcroft and Dirty Pretty Things. In June they will be sharing the main-stage at the ROCKNESS festival with Razorlight and will open for Proclaimers later in the month. They performed live on numerous TV and Radio sessions worldwide including on various BBC stations.
Operating from a state-of-the-art studio complex in the UK, formerly owned by Phil Manzanera of Roxy Music, Songphonic is an incubator of real music talent. Its operations combine a boutique record label, music publishing, a recording studio and artist patronage.
Founded by Osman Kent, former CEO and co-founder of 3Dlabs, Songphonic is an audiophile label fanatical about musical values, sonic excellence and technology.
