Biography

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.

Jump: Press A's 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 unrivaled by many of their contemporaries.

In 2009 the band self-recorded and produced a 3-track sampler CD entitled In Case of Emergency and have so far distributed over 700 copies in exchange for email addresses.

They had their first airplay on Vic Galloway's BBC Radio One show, Scotland Introducing and since have been played by Jim Gellatly (New Music in Scotland), Aaron Philips (Amazing Radio,) featured 3 times on Leith FM (including 2 live acoustic sessions), and have been included on numerous podcasts.

Over the last year Jump: Press A have played headline slots at Leith Festival, The Amnesty Bash and Edinburgh University's Freshers week. During the next 6 months the band has plans to release a live EP with a limited edition physical release and a mini-tour of Scotland and Northern Ireland. An acoustic album is scheduled for release in Summer 2011, and a studio recording is scheduled for Autumn of the same year.

They have been booked for the opening night of Leith Festival 2011, playing with the hotly tipped Aerials Up and have been asked to play with Face Tomorrow when they tour the UK.
