Product notities

HOTPRESS REVIEW AUGUST 09: 'The Jades' 15 minutes of fame via the TV series You're A Star proved that all publicity isn't good publicity, but the all-girl trio have earned their rock spurs by getting over it and moving on. Amber Skies was recorded by Dave Odlum (Gemma Hayes/The Frames/David Kitt), and comprises band-written originals, including infectious hook-laden tracks like 'Sooner Or Later', 'Beautiful Thing' and 'Loser'. But they can stretch out too, as on 'The Way' which sweeps you off for five minutes in paradise, while chiming guitar fans should check out 'Look At Me'. The sound rarely moves far from using guitars and drums as scaffolding for the girls' soaring melodies and spine-tingling harmonies, so if you think slightly heavier Bangles you'll be getting there. This welcome debut firmly and finally counters any lingering suspicion of The Jades as manufactured pretty girl band. But then, they've always been so much more than that' All members of The Jades come from Kilmuckridge in county Wexford and first met at primary school. As Yvonne says, "We have been in a band together for what feels like forever at this stage! We learned our spellings together in primary school and formed the band after finishing our leaving certs. We have taken a year or two off in between the time to pursue college and other things, but hey!, what good relationship hasn't!" Before the band formally came together, each member had built up considerable experience performing locally in musicals and shows. They first came to public attention in Ireland through their colourful live shows and their appearances on the RTE series You're A Star. Though others have taken to slagging off participation in the show for fear of losing credibility, The Jades are grateful for the exposure, the friends, the fans and the contacts that they made and the incredible fun they had. They are unapologetic for embracing the opportunity it afforded them. Like every all-female band, The Jades have to contend with the tendency to be judged by their looks, but their band manifesto is based on a desire to be perceived as a talented original band, playing their own instruments and writing their own songs. For the past year The Jades have been doing exactly that, writing and recording in the studio with producer David Odlum. Their debut album, titled AMBER SKIES, sees the light of day on August 14th with 'Look at me now' the single to precede that released to radio to coincide with their debut performance at the OXEGEN festival on July 12th. The album has already been described by one music industry insider as "a pounding slice of melodic pop/rock with harmonies to die for". All of the tracks on the AMBER SKIES are originals by The Jades who pride themselves on being one of the few all-female bands in Ireland - or the world for that matter - writing their own songs and playing their own instruments. According to guitarist and backing vocalist Elaine, "We've recorded the album mostly in Wexford and in Sun Studios in Temple Bar and then we spent ten days in France to add the finishing touches. We're really delighted with how it's turned out and now we are looking forward to getting out there and promoting it!. We're also looking forward to doing some live gigs after having been in the studio for so much of last year". The Jades line up consists of sisters, Sheila and Yvonne O'Sullivan on lead vocals/ guitar and drums respectively, with friend Elaine Weldon on guitar and backing vocals. As Sheila says "No point in telling you what our style of music is like, have a listen and see for yourself!"
