About Mystery Jets
An eclectic English indie group that blends conventional pop with kaleidoscopic folk, indie rock, and post-punk, Mystery Jets emerged in the early 2000s. A family project centered around frontman Blaine Harrison and his father Henry Harrison, the group debuted their unique 1960s psych-pop-influenced sound in 2006 with the release of their debut album Making Dens. They found regional success two years later with the arrival of their third LP, Twenty One, which included the hit single "Young Love" featuring Laura Marling. They continued to hone their distinctive style on subsequent offerings like Radlands (2012) and A Billion Heartbeats (2019), the latter two of which introduced more progressive rock elements into the mix.
The Syd Barrett (Official)-inspired outfit formed in the mid-'90s when the group's shock-headed frontman, Blaine Harrison, was only 12. The band was initially called the Misery Jets, in honour of the Heathrow-bound jets that habitually roared over their native Eel Pie Island, but they changed their name when Blaine misspelled "misery." The Mystery Jets were essentially a family project, with Blaine on drums; Blaine's dad Henry Harrison on bass, and Blaine's friend William Rees on guitar. Henry eventually switched from bass to guitar, Kai Fish joined up as the group's bassist, and Blaine switched from drums to keyboards. The group tried out a drum machine and a local kid named Max before finally latching onto drummer Kapil Trevedi. Five Tracks EP, recorded soon after Trevedi joined the group, was released on 679 Records in 2005, and their first full-length album, Making Dens, was released the following year. Zootime, a collection of Making Dens tracks plus remixes and songs from 2006 EPs such as You Can't Fool Me Dennis and Diamonds in the Dark, was released by DIM MAK in spring 2007. Released in 2008, Twenty One peaked at number 42 on the U.K. albums chart and boasted the single "Young Love," featuring indie folk queen Laura Marling. The band's third full-length, Serotonin, arrived in 2010. Following a secret show at the 2011 SXSW festival, the band set up a mobile studio and recorded the Texas-informed Radlands record, which was released in April of 2012. Shortly before the release of the album, Fish left Mystery Jets, replaced by Pete Cochrane for their upcoming U.K. tour. Fifth studio album Curve of the Earth was recorded over a three-year period beginning in 2013. Released in early 2016, the album was entirely self-produced in their homemade studio, marking a shift into progressive rock territory with Harrison citing Pink Floyd and King Crimson as major influences. It was also their first outing with new bass player Jack Flanagan. In August 2019 the band took on the alt-right movement with the politically charged single "Screwdriver," which appeared on their equally topical sixth long-player A Billion Heartbeats.
