Jaunt

Story

Thomas Helliwell and Pat O’Brien began their collaboration in Hamilton, Ontario in the winter of 2014. Born of their shared love of pop music and an improvised recording setup in O’Brien’s bedroom, the project quickly became an obsession. The two eventually convened in Toronto feeling mutually inspired, shaping and realizing their music. Two years later, this partnership is Jaunt. Now a fully formed band of five, Jaunt creates the type of introspective music that is easy to get lost in.

Fantastic review of the new Jaunt EP at ThrdCoast. Out this Friday

! “Jaunt knows just how to work their plush pitch and electronic inclinations, instilling in us a sense of longing and setting a sensual mood. Their lyrics dip into blues and their sound seems to capture the metamorphoses of R&B and neo-psych in a relatively short span of minutes. Again, damn.”

“If you’re a fan of coastal drives, palm tree-shaded hammocks, aquamarine ocean water, then this is your kind of summery pop music.”  

06-22-2016

Listen to Jaunt’s glorious new single “Hello” at PressPlay OK!

“…it packs in more inventiveness and charm in 1:45 than most bands manage in a whole career. The Toronto vehicle’s dreamy electronica is such a trip that you’ll be aching for it to last longer, but so turned on about the fact they’ve left you thirsting for more.”
