Jets To Brazil

Jets To Brazil were an indie/emo band active from 1997-2003 in Brooklyn, New York. They were formed by Blake Schwarzenbach (formerly of Jawbreaker) and Jeremy Chatelain. They were soon joined by ex-Texas Is The Reason drummer Chris Daly, as well as guitarist Brian Maryansky after the release of their debut album. Despite the roots in punk that many of the members came from, Jets To Brazil opted for a much different sound. They incorporated keyboards and acoustic guitars in addition to the typically distorted guitars and drums. Genres as varied as indie, pop, folk, and classic rock were also drawn upon in terms of influence. The band only managed to put out three full-lengths, though each are very different from the others, showcasing the band's rapid progression and constant experimentation. Jets To Brazil were signed to Jade Tree Records throughout their tenure, and remained peers to bands such as The Promise Ring and Jimmy Eat World until their end. Their three albums are now highly regarded, particularly their debut, Orange Rhyming Dictionary. Although they are a band of notoriety in their own right, fans of Jawbreaker, Texas Is The Reason, etc. need to give this band a try, since they sound like a continuation of where those bands might have gone had they continued longer than they did. Enjoy.
