Album Notes
Jupe Jupe serves up a noir cocktail of new music its new EP, Nightfall—five hook-laden songs about yearning that are simultaneously upbeat and melancholy. The group spent over a year meticulously crafting each tune on Nightfall, including adding a vital new saxophone element to its sound, before teaming up with producer Matt Bayles at Studio Litho in Seattle, Washington. A former member of Minus the Bear, Bayles has produced and mixed a number of seminal albums by Botch, Mastodon, Murder City Devils, He Whose Ox Is Gored, The Blood Brothers, and many more. He also produced and engineered the previous Jupe Jupe album, 2017’s Lonely Creatures.

Since forming in 2010, the Seattle quartet has brought its unique style to four other original releases—Invaders, Reduction in Drag, Crooked Kisses, and Lonely Creatures—creating infectious tracks influenced by post-punk, synth-pop, and haunting Americana. The group also joined forces with a variety of renowned artists and producers for the remix album, Cut Up Kisses (featuring Lusine, Rick G. Nelson of The Afghan Whigs, Mike Simonetti, Erik Blood, and others).

Jupe Jupe is made up of My Young on vocals and synths; Bryan Manzo on guitar, bass, and saxophone; Patrick Partington on guitar; and Jarrod Arbini on drums and percussion. The four members are veterans of the Seattle and Austin indie-pop and prog scenes.

Past press and reviews:

“Anyone with even a passive appreciation for expertly applied, fluid synth riffs, drama-filled vocals, infectious pop choruses, and deft dance-rock grooves will be able to ease right in.”

“Mining the new wave sound is nothing new, but the bands that make it work—Interpol, A Projection and now Jupe Jupe—make it feel instantly familiar and yet totally fresh and modern.”

“There are sounds colored by breaths of Depeche Mode, Gary Numan and OMD, and even some quick little winks and grins towards Haircut 100 and early Cure. But these are jumping off points. Sonic references to further the genre and push it into the future. A future that is danceable, joyous, and stained with beautiful melancholy.”
–Big Takeover

“From opener ‘Faith in What You Hear’ I was grabbed: a new wave sound that audaciously double-jumps back to the Alan Parsons Project. I fell in love with this album [Lonely Creatures]: it just gets everything right.”
–Pansentient League

“Clearly, Jupe Jupe has honed it sound, and the end result is an enjoyable blend of the Strokes, Simple Minds and Duran Duran, with a slight hint of ‘70s prog.”

“We accidentally caught a Jupe Jupe live performance down in Austin during South-By-Southwest. The memory, hazy by design and fuzzy by alcohol, stands out in a sea of bands that week.”
