"PunkNews - Webzine from US"

"Not that I’m one to usually join in such festivities, but Jordan could
be one less reason to hate France. That is, assuming you can get into
their dancey yet modest, vibrant indie rock.
Jordan sometimes get by with fizzling keyboard lines and, albeit less often, even dramatic piano, but always with incredibly delicately composed guitar work. It seems like every riff is well-thought out, whether it’s slow, high-pitched picking or full-out, distortion-driven frantic rock moments. " -

"Three Imaginary Girls - Blog from Seattle"

" The album is Oh No We Are Dominos! and it brought a major smile to my face with it's early Rapture discordant keyboards and shouting melodic vocals. " -

"Yellow is the new pink - Webzine from Germany"

" Jordan are from France and play indie or postsomething somewhere near Q And Not U or Les Savy Fav but they are far from copying anyone. Indie rock with keyboards usually is pretty much for the dancefloor. Jordan are different. On their new record song is king. Or queen. Do songs have genders? " -

" - Fanzine from Houston, Texas"

" Paris, France's Jordan would be on Dischord Records if they were from
D.C. but be as it is they are from France. (...) Jordan really kicks up
some dust, and with the right spark could easily be France's answer to
At The Drive In or Q And Not You. " -


Our first album was recorded and produced in 2007 by Jay Pelliccci (Deerhoof, Erase Errata,...) who is the drummer of 31Knots, another band we love. We have recorded our first EP in Montreal, Canada, in 2006, with Howard Bilerman who worked with Godspeed You Black Emperor or Arcade Fire, and Brian Paulson (Slint, Beck, Mates of States,....). Our music is often played on the net or on the radios in Europe, but only indie networks.



Jordan hails from Paris, France. « French weirdos with no bass » would be a fast sum up...The band appears as a trio (guitar/drums/keyboards) and cultivates its outsider character. Imagine three boys born in a small french city in the 1980's, raised in the 1990's culture that melt joyously european post punk, anything noisy born in America anf french no-wave and art rock heritage. That mix can't be separated from a certain french touch you can feel in the vocals deliberately sung in a cute broken english. The lyrics, pretty ironic, make references to a various range of sources (from Melville's Whale to Defoe's Pirates, Dennis Wilson tragic destiny, mexican legends, Lavey's parties or diy voodoo...).
It sounds lo-fi, naive, sometimes melancolic and might be a surprise in the indie scene. Now grown up as a live band travelling everywhere, either by car, bus, plane or train (200 shows in 15 different countries). They are now preparing the next tours in June in Eastern Europe, and in October in the US again and surely more.
