Jailbox release new album Idea Jar


St Louis three-piece Jailbox are delighted to announce the release of the beautifully introspective Idea Jar, out now via FarmerTanz Records.

Idea Jar displays a unique and ethereal quality to Jailbox’ music; dreamy, sensitive vocals are elegantly lifted by simple, yet effective, guitar pieces, affecting layers of atmospheric percussion add to an already sumptuous song, brought together expertly by beguiling strings.

Exploring themes of loss, letting go and personal reflection, Idea Jar perfectly exhibits Jailbox’ evocative, thought provoking music, which brims with emotion, carefully crafted musicianship and easily relatable lyrical content the likes of Owen, Ry X and Sufjan Stevens would be proud of.

Comprised of Andrew Tanz (vocals, keyboards, guitar, bass, percussion), Joseph Bassa (vocals, guitars, percussion) and Aaron Essner (percussion, drums) Jailbox formed in 2009 as a moniker for their home recordings which was taking place in their home state of Missouri. After going on hiatus for two years, the 2015 writing and recording of Idea Jar marked a welcome return for the band and is the start of a creative period that will see them release two singles and two videos throughout October and November.

Having supported the likes of Vetiver, Devendra Barnhart, Still Corners, Daniel Johnston and Pines as well as playing renowned venue Pappy & Harriet’s in Pioneertown as part of Coachella, Jailbox are aiming to end 2016 on a high with with a video for Idea Jar and release of second single ‘Whole’, which is out in November, to follow.
