Jarrow - Kelp

Jarrow - Kelp
Jarrow is Footscray’s favourite self-taught, self-produced, garage-pop multi-instrumentalist. Drawing inspiration equally from 21st century meme culture and classic 90’s indie-rock, Expensive Hugs is an immensely enjoyable dash through Jarrow’s world of pop-hooks, weird soundscapes and riff-jams.

‘Kelp’ is accompanied by an incredible experimental clip using software that links a dozen iPhones together to record simultaneously. As Dan (the mastermind behind Jarrow) explains, “I was approached by director Mike Plumridge who came up with the idea of filming a band in 360 degrees while they shredded to their hearts content. As a massive fan of The Matrix I just couldn't help but say yes.” He goes on to say “To make this recipe you will need: 16 smartphones, a warehouse in Collingwood, a bike, a smoke machine, my friend Travis, a game of Scrabble and a cardboard cutout of yours truly. Mix it all together and you got a tasty dish indeed.”

Jarrow is also half way through his Wednesday night residency at the Evelyn Hotel. He has self curated an incredible all-star line up including visual artists each week. For all those in Melbourne – don’t miss these last 2 weeks!

About this track...

As the opening track off Expensive Hugs, ‘Kelp’ perfectly sets the tone for Jarrow’s weird and wonderful second album. Hooks, yelps and a dynamic lead-guitar adorn his compelling turn of phrase as it battles to break free of the songs perfect garage pop structure.
