Adult Jazz – Am Gone

AJ

In honor of the CMJ Music Marathon happening in New York this week, we thought now would be a good time to highlight the Leeds-based group and featured CMJ artist, Adult Jazz. Four years in the making, the British quartet released their complex debut, Gist Is this August. Showcasing a uniquely variegated sound with influences of chamber pop, prog rock, and of course jazz, lead singer Harry Burgess has said that the album explores weighty subjects such as the challenges of communication, empathy, morality, and the search for meaning.

Stream the stirring track “Am Gone,” and if you’re in the NYC area, get jazzed for their CMJ performances below (full schedule here).

Adult Jazz CMJ dates:
10.23 – Rough Trade – 10:00PM
10.24 – Rough Trade – 12:30PM
10.25 – Brooklyn Bowl  – 8:30PM

  1. Yup it takes a while to get ‘Gist’ provided you’re willing to stay with it. It grew on me and it’s been very rewarding. Nice to see the band and its music being talked about more.
