SWIT Premiere: Jetstream Pony make the grade with “Had Enough”.

We featured the mellifluous “Like You Less” by Jetstream Pony last week and we are now excited (!!) to premiere the video for the single’s flip-side – “Had Enough”. It’s another cracking tune, you know most ALBUMS don’t have two songs this good. Someone said B-side but we say it’s a Grade A double-A side and we award it an A+.

I got the vid (that’s slang for video) at midday yesterday and have been listening on a loop since (well ok, I did sleep for a few hours overnight but it was the soundtrack to my dreams). It’s a little bit mellower, scruffier around the edges. It’s heavy, it’s light, it got a wonderful understated chorus, melody and hesitant harmony. It’s lovely. Did I mention the cymbals*? The limited-edition vinyl single is out on small-but-beautifully-formed label Kleine Untergrund Schallplatten since September 4th.

The video was filmed on Rottingdean beach, it’s between Brighton and Beachy Head, worth a visit I reckon.

Jetstream Pony are from Brighton/Croyden. They are people by Beth Arzy (Trembling Blue Stars/The Luxembourg Signal/Lightning in a Twilight Hour**/Aberdeen) on vocals, Shaun Charman (The Wedding Present/The Popguns/The Fireworks) on guitar, Kerry Boettcher on bass and Sara Boyle on drums.

Upcoming gigs:

6th October – London Dalston Victoria (with The Electric Pop Group)
28th October – Hamburg Astrastube (with The Soda Stream)
