With two EPs behind them, this four-piece formed in early 2007 to quite a bit of success according to their MySpace page. Currently touring, they would definitely be worth a look…

Shards – Jaded Playboy

A spiky punk-pop track, this certainly wouldn’t be out of place in the record collection of any Clash fan. Strong melodies and a catchy beat make this an enjoyable hummable song. A stand-out track.

Sacred Shots – Jaded Playboy

More up-tempo than Shards, the post chorus distorted guitars seem slightly off-kilter at first, but make more sense as the track progresses. Seemingly a mish-mash of different styles, I’m not sure this really works on all levels. Where it can’t be faulted is in energy levels-the band sound at their most involved compared to other tracks, but the finished product requires some work.

Little Cinders – Jaded Playboy

An excellent end-of-relationship lament, Little Cinders highlights the lyrical and melodic strength of the band. Reminiscent of an updated Cure, the tracks spiky guitars compliment lead singer Scott’s vocals well. A return to the more pop sound of Shards, this track confirms the band should concentrate on less metal, more melody.

Retreat – Jaded Playboy

A rockier track, this is the only truly off-key moment from the band. While they are successful in the punk realm, this heavier type of song seems to go nowhere as if they ran out of ideas. Generic metal does not do them justice. Stick to what you’re good at guys.

Verdict

With some great songs and tight production, this band could soon be coming to a radio near you…if they continue to produce tracks like Shards and Little Cinders.

Bio

The jp came together at the start of 2007 to produce a dark, melodic blend of rock and punk inspired by the ominous inevitabilities which life throws at us all. After a great start for jaded playboy in 2007, recording two demos and an EP, playing over thirty shows, receiving radio airplay on XFM and an offer of a publishing contract in the US, the jp returned in 2008 with their well received EP ‘Retreat’. The Cabaret Voltaire played host to a very successful launch night in August selling close to 200 EPs. They also performed a live acoustic radio session and interview on Talk 107 the day before. The second EP from the Edinburgh rock outfit has since gone on to shift close to 500 copies through gigging constantly throughout the UK. Their hard work was to be rewarded and noticed; ending 2008 with an excellent showcase performance for JAR music group. Fast Forward on a few months into 2009 and that would bring with it the offer of being included on the Californian record company '272 Records' 'Punk Kills Vol VII' album. Showcasing some of the best unsigned talent from around the globe. The long player will be sent out to 25 Californian college radio stations and will also be available on Amazon. Not to mention in some of the famous tattoo parlours and record shops along sunset strip! jaded playboy will be looking to go back into the studio in May to record their third EP and continue to play all over the UK and hopefully further afield in 2009. “with a heart of stone, the jaded playboy seems indifferent to the fate of those who love him, the jaded playboy had completely lost interest in women”
