"Jupiter One EP Review"

On their self-titled debut EP, Jupiter One have found their sound, heavy on the analog synths and bootsy bass lines. From the first track, “Wrong Line,” each song will get stuck in your head for days as you repeatedly listen to the EP. Mixing new wave vocal harmonies over eerie synthesizer lines that would make Robert Moog and Grandaddy proud. Other tracks employ Space-age love songs via prog-heavy freakouts and mini-symphonies leaving the listener to believe extra-terrestials have taken over their stereo. On “Kamikaze Pilots” the orchestral pop and quirky keyboards transport the listener to The Jetsons’ space age pad far away in the future. We come back down to Earth for the melancholic rock of “Mystery Man” which takes cues from the Flaming Lips’ grandiose compositions of quirky keyboards and hypnotic vocals that pull you in. Other tracks showcase solid guitar riffs that sprawl into tight accurate fury for any prog-rock fan. “It Takes a Monster” provides thumping bass over solid drums and new wave vocals for the extraterrrestrial. Fans will recognize the synthesizer rock of The Cars or Spacehog and the vocal stylings of The Police or Talking Heads as far as comparisons go . Ending with “Safe But Not a Home,” a solid jam that sprawls into Blonde Redhead territory post-rock leaving the listener waiting for more.

"Some Thoughts About Jupiter One"

For those who believe that there are no new young people making exciting innovative music, i suggest that they turn off their TV sets and AM radio and go out and listen to Jupiter One, a brilliant group of young musicians and songwriters, who are as fresh and enjoyable on a first hearing as the Beatles were forty years ago.

The response Jupiter One illicited from their young audience the night i heard them proves that young people today appreciate excellence and artistry, wherever and whenever they encounter it, and that Jupiter One has already arrived as a brilliant, dynamic, theatrical group whose musical ability, sophistication and galvanizing showmanship assures them of a long life in music.

Feeling a bit camera shy


Part sci-fi, Part mother nature. New York five-piece Jupiter One’s fresh sound breathes new life into stale stereotypes of indie rock. Born out of an urge to create mini-orchestral pieces, Jupiter One has dedicated its life to producing well-designed rock. In operation since 2003, the recent addition of drummer Dave Heilman in 2004 expanded their sound, incorporating new textures to create a different aural experience for each song. Each of the five members are studied musicians whose combined influences include Blonde Redhead, Deathcab for Cutie, Pink Floyd, Flaming Lips, Talking Heads, and David Bowie to name a few.

Jupiter One continually play all over New York City and have played at downtown venues Rothko, Knitting Factory, Sin-e, Pianos and Tribeca Rock Club. Live, the musical dexterity of Jupiter One is fully realized as lead vocalist K jumps from keyboard to violin and Mocha goes from violin to keyboard while Zac drops keyboards for guitar. The varied sounds of Jupiter One’s multilayered dance grooves plays out loud and clear with precision not reached by many new bands these days. Jupiter One’s space-age orchestral rock hits hard enough to move asses on the dance floor, and is so richly textured and thoughtfully conceived that it can open minds at the same time.
