Jeremy Jay A Place Where We Could Go
- Words: Taryn Harrington
- Label: K
- XLR8R Rating: 8/10
On his full-length debut, A Place Where We Could Go, Jeremy Jay, a Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter, flirts with 1950s-style mood and influences from all across the dial. The oohs, ahhs, and finger snaps on his lo-fi Richie Valens love songs can just as easily stray into Elton John-like pop piano territory or Link Wray-esque power chords. He’s a beautiful rebel from a Peter Pan storybook creating a garage-punk-tinged soundtrack to an old movie, and when he croons on “The Living Dolls” or the standout “Beautiful Rebel,” he recalls a more melodic Jonathan Richman. A step up from his Airwalker EP, A Place sees the indie pop gem transitioning into a more classic rock style with much originality.
