Warbly Jets have unveiled NASA, the band’s first new music since 2019’s Propaganda EP and their stripping back to the core of Samuel Shea and Julien O’Neill.
For an independent outfit hit hard by the shutdown of live music, Warbly Jets are offering up this new single as proof of their determination to come out of the coronavirus pandemic stronger than ever. “Before 2020 it felt like the music world was figuring out how to be highly sustainable for the first time since the millennium,” O’Neill says.
“The streaming wars were decided, digital spaces were being monetized, festivals were global. Now there’s a big lull and no one knows where to turn to. There’s bound to be many who are just going to call it a day. But there are also a lot of us who are making our best material right now and can’t wait to get back in it! That’s where we feel like we’re at. Anyone with a YouTube channel or TikTok has an outlet for instant notoriety.”
“COVID is cracking open opportunities for anyone who is willing to get creative and stir the pot,” adds Shea. “The people that have been able to shake off the negativity of the year, put their head down and get to work have been able to succeed. Creative people are finding solutions in places no-one else is looking.”
