Jump: Press A are an Edinburgh based indie/pop/rock band who have been compared to the likes of Garbage, Muse and Placebo. Their songs are multi-layered mini-epics with dark lyrics that strike hard against a background of quirky riffs and pop driven melodies. It leaves a strawberry aftertaste .
The band formed in much the same way as most bands - around a table at an open mic night. Impressed with each others' alcohol fueled musical efforts, they decided that, perhaps, together they could be more than a few drunks with instruments and a mild obsession with vocal harmony.
Jump: Press A are currently busy recording new tunes, which will appear on the site real soon.
