A&R Factory Present: Jay Pray

Today Connecticut’s Jay Pray reveals the gripping, moody, lovelorn official video for fan favorite I’d Go Anywhere (Do Anything), which premiered with Northern Transmissions. The Wild Honey Pie also debuted the full album stream earlier this week, offering fans an early glimpse into Jay Pray’s repertoire.  

Justin Romanos learned how to make music growing up in rural Connecticut, both by playing and by recording in his own makeshift home studio. During college at Drexel University’s Music Industry Program, he found a home with like­minded peers, and gained the nickname, “J Pré.” He honed his craft by continuously writing, and spent much of his time in the close ­knit Philadelphia basement community, where he fronted the indie rock band SHMNS. After graduating college in 2014, he moved back to Woodbury, CT to regroup, refocus, and reinvent himself as a musician. He spent the last two years writing and recording songs for this album as well as many, many others that may never see the light of day.

A&R Factory Present: Spine Of Man

Copenhagen-based guitarpop band Spine of Man consists of three young Danish fellas who’ve been humming tunes, plucking strings and banging drums since they could walk. For two years they have been polishing their sound and now they have just released their debut EP of four new tracks. Vampires is the second cut from the EP and has a darker air to it with lyrics about lust and desire.

Spine of Man formed two years ago from the ashes of indie powerpop outfit Le Clé – a popular underground act in Copenhagen. The young menwanted to turn down the bpm’s and create a more dreamy pop universe. Now they have found their sound with Mads Doemgaard on drums, Joachim Christensen on guitar/bass and Alexander on vocals/guitar.
