Divus Julius presents: Mystery Jets

Mystery Jets is an English five-piece indie band, formerly based on Eel Pie Island in Twickenham, London.  It’s hard to believe that it’s been ten years since Mystery Jets broke surface with their debut album, Making Dens.

A few days ago Mystery Jets have shared a video for A Billion Heartbeats. The indie-rock number serves as the title track of the band’s upcoming sixth studio album, out on April 3 via Caroline International, having had its 2019 release postponed due to vocalist Blaine Harrison undergoing emergency surgery. The clip, meanwhile, was shot in Trafalgar Square, London.

 

The muses of La Musa: Arlo Parks

Half way between indie R&B and soft rock, the compositions of the extremely young London singer Arlo Parks talk about the everyday life of a new broken and sad generation. Her subjects, inspired by her friends and her own problems and hopes, are delicate and melancholic pieces with a great emotional load. Parks comes to Barcelona to present her first EP, Super Sad Generation, with which she has won the unanimous recognition of critics in the United Kingdom. Her not-even-20 years give even more value to this artist, who has been compared with artists such as Portishead and Syd Barrett. Next 20th of September at BAM Festival.
