Following a flurry of critical acclaim for their debut single Springful / Am Gone in January, Adult Jazz have announced their anticipated debut album, 'Gist Is' on 4th Aug 2014, via their own label Spare Thought. A single-note drone fills the air, joined by a lilting, pitch-shifted vocal. The mercurial melody falls between folk, plainsong, pop and jazz, the words trigger equally beguiling images and the voice has an uninhibited, freestyle timbre. At seven minutes and twenty nine seconds, 'Hum' is as audacious as it is a brilliant introduction to a record. Through nine tracks and 51 minutes, their debut album released on the bands own label Spare Thought, is a voyage thats startling, mesmerising and magical from start to finish. ' Gist Is' also evolved intuitively, taking four years to finish. Studies (and more recently, day jobs) had to be factored in, but the dominant factor was having the freedom, to write and to realise a direction as we went along. There was no prescribed path for the album, so we could take an internalised approach.
