Video

Mystery Jets have unveiled their brand new official music video for their current single ‘Greatest Hits’. Featuring a tap dancing Kapil, merry-go-rounds and lines like “Hold on to ‘The Boy With The Arab Strap’ ‘cos I’m holding on to ‘Village Green’”, it’s quite possibly our favourite video of theirs yet!

Serotonin

Serotonin Released: 04/07/10 by The Mystery Jets

Buy Serotonin from iTunes or Amazon.

Serotonin sees the band strip away much of the excess on their lovelorn, warmly-received 2008 album Twenty One, Serotonin sees the Mystery Jets mapping out entirely new musical territories: the synthesizer-fuelled perfect pop of Dreaming Of Another World; It’s Too Late, which begins as an aching soft-rock ballad before unexpectedly heading somewhere infinitely weirder; the dark, hallucinatory grind of Lorna Doone. You can hear echoes of ELO, 10CC, Fleetwood Mac and Supertramp rubbing up against the band’s own idiosyncratic, very British, occasionally rather creepy psychedelic sensibility.

Serotonin sees the band team up with legendary producer Chris Thomas (responsible for Pulp’s Different Class, John Cale’s Paris 1919 and The Sex Pistols’ Never Mind The Bollocks).
