Introducing Jane's Party

tirsdag 29. november 2016, kl. 20.51 · av Sabrina Martin for Snakker ikke norsk

From one cold country to another…

I bumped into Jane’s Party the other night… The band.
Ask no more, Jane’s party is not a some cute girl memorable party, but a street where THEY (Jeff, Devon, Tom and Zach) used to practice when it all started.
They all separately began playing music when they were fairly young, and went on to study it and ended up meeting through university.
They first played as a cover band and found themselves enticed by the thrill of performing live.
Nine years later as a band, after numerous tours across Canada, they finally leave their shores for the first time to unleash their retro Cali (as in Californian) pop rock sound upon europe.
It feels like a slow progression, like the birth of a butterfly:
egg to caterpillar to chrysalis to band.
However in that fruition time, Jane’s Party found themselves, their members and their sound, and they gained in practice through performances.

So why did it take so long for them to come over here?
We are good people, we love Rock’n’roll.

Well simply because Canada is so goddamn big.
They assure me that it has been a journey, but a necessary one, everything happened one step at a time.
And maybe that’s why they seem so grounded, so calm and self assured. Surprisingly they are self managing on this tour and that looks like it is no issue at all.
When you headline a big act like Tom Odell, you get to play in bigger venue and in front of larger crowds. The child like excitement is palpable when I ask if they feel like rock stars !
And sure it must be wonderful to be up there on stage especially when you think about the way they got picked to headline:
Simply imagine Tom Odell in a bar, maybe having a casual drink whilst Jane’s Party is playing in the background and falling for them.

Right now, they just want to do their thing, write and play music and live from it. So I suggest to you all lovely people, that have a crush on retro sounds (think The Beach Boys era), to listen to their latest album “Tunnel Visions” released earlier this year.
My personal favorite is “So long”, I could loop the ending of that song forever. But don’t just listen to the album, go to one of their gig: it feels a little like a trip back in time, because of their sound, because they can all sing, and because Tom has some serious guitar skills.

And in case you wonder, they are currently listening to Matt Duncan and Andy Shauf and you should check out their playlist on spotify “Canadians Abroad”. It is pretty sweet!
