Sunderland rock band BOY JUMPS SHIP
are back with their biggest and most ambitious single to date ‘Fashion’.
Vocalist Si explains “‘Fashion’ is about not conforming to the social pressures and stereotypes that are thrown at us today, particularly via social media. A lot of younger people are given the impression that everyone’s life is idealistic, and therefore feel pressured to fit in and confirm to what they are shown is the ‘right way’”
Their bold and anthemic new tune was written in Iceland when the band opted for a change of scenery, gatecrashing their bassist, Jonny Rob’s modelling shoot trip. The track was then recorded Berlin’s Jazzanova Studios (Lenny Kravitz, Jason Derulo, Lorde
) with producer Fish.
Si continues, ”We went into this recording process wanting to take more risks and push ourselves into new territories. It’s about being true to yourself no matter what, by following the things you are truly passionate about. It’s a positive message about finding your own place in it all, even if it means stepping into the unknown”.
Hailing from the North-East of England, working class lads, BOY JUMPS SHIP
have gained a reputation for their energetic, passionate and exuberant live performances up and down the country and around Europe.
