‘Give Me Air’ is the sophomore single by London-based quartet Jet-G, released on October 7th via Future London. The quartet is a collaboration of artists (Jolliffe, female vocalist ECKOES, Modestep’s founding member Tony Terror and GENTRY– making up the acronym of the band’s name) all of whom have excelled in prior projects.
‘Give Me Air’ was born from a simple piano idea. It opens with a slow, uncluttered introduction to ECKOES’ brilliant vocals, which have been honed to impart the maximum amount of emotion, and then subtly builds into kinetic instrumentals.
Speaking of the single, ECKOES from JET-G tell us: “We were in a small studio in London Fields during the covid lockdown. Rob (GENTRY) was playing about on the grand piano at the end of a writing session & we just started recording. The guys began to produce as they went & I could hear a melody & lyrics almost immediately. The songs were kind of accidental, but within a few hours, the bones of two singles had been recorded.”
