Published Mar 03, 2020Jade Hairpins — the project led by Fucked Up drummer Jonah Falco and guitarist Mike Haliechuk — have announced their debut album. Called Harmony Avenue, the record arrives May 29 via Arts & Crafts/Merge Records. Right now, though, you can get in on the album early with the newly shared track "J Terrapin."
Falco described the new record as "straddling the post-post-punk of something like New Order, Scritti Politti and Orange Juice, with a primordial sense of humour and absurdity not unlike Ian Dury and the Blockheads, Television Personalities, or the Monks."
A press release further explains, "Each Jade Hairpins song was conceived in studio, then edited and crafted to become Harmony Avenue. Each vocal approach was different — first focusing on creating stories for character-based writing, and then on less absurd emotional/thoughtful/personal reflection."
Below, you can hear "J Terrapin," which has arrived alongside a new video.
Fucked Up last released their album Dose Your Dreams in 2018.
