‘Jump My Bones’ is The Saturday Tea’s second single from the soon to be released album Quicksilver Dreams. The lyrics are sung in English and with lines like ‘I think I’m gonna die/ We always wave goodbye/ I think I’m gonna try and I dunno why’, it seems to be about the break-up of a relationship. The echoey vocals are at times muffled in the finest Mick Jagger tradition.
This Warsaw-based three piece is comprised of Jan Wiśniewski on vocals and guitar, Aleksander Makowski on vocals and guitar and Antoni Orłoś on drums. They’ve been together since 2011and describe themselves as apsych-rock band drawing inspiration from The 13thFloor Elevators and Connan Mockasin.They’ve appeared at the OFF Festivalin Poland and at SXSW.
The spooky piano intro evokes memories of the Stones ‘2000 Light Years From Home’ while the descending piano chords are reminiscent of The Beatles’ ‘Glass Onion’. There’s an interesting aural landscape midway through that includes a young woman laughing and muffled street sounds punctured by a distorted guitar that’s been prominent throughout the song, but maybe this section was too stark and needed a little extra texture. This aural landscape builds to an increasing echoey climax as the vocal line ‘I don’t need you any more’ re-enters and it all ends in a reverberating climax.
‘Jump My Bones’ has an interesting sound and is a fine taster for their new album.
‘Jump My Bones’ is now on release to be followed on 13thFebruary by the album Quicksilver Dreams. You can find more information on the band’s Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/thesaturdaytea/and their official website – http://www.thesaturdaytea.com
