Album Review: Mystery Jets – A Billion Heartbeats

Posted on 03 Apr 2020 at 8:08am

This album appears to be cursed: originally due for release last autumn, it had to be delayed when singer Blaine Harrison underwent an operation for an infection.

The band weren’t able to fulfill the promotional duties required (in-stores, radio appearances etc) and so opted to delay the release by six months. Obviously, promotional duties are now off the agenda once more, but at least we finally have the album in full form.

Whether or not it’s been worth the wait is a different question. When the Eel Pie Islanders first broke through in the mid-2000s, they were quite lightweight. Although better than much of the so-called indie landfill that they were associated with, as their relative longevity has proved, they were still quite fey.

In the preceding years, the electric guitars have been turned up progressively and have surely reached their zenith on A Billion Heartbeats. Where they were scrabbling beneath the surface amidst the airy expanse of previous album Curve Of The Earth, as with their peers Foals’ recent output, here the electric axe is beefed up and dominant, at least on the first half.

On our Best Albums list, 2019 brought us future classics from Fontaines D.C., Dave, The Murder Capital, FEET, slowthai and black midi to name just a few. Those and plenty more feature too on our favourite tracks of the year.

Picked out by editor David Smith from the hundreds which have featured on these pages during the past twelve months, Sinead O’Brien, Dry Cleaning, Black Country New Road, Kate Tempest and Working Men’s Club are just some who have added to a year which, whilst nostalgia has continued its grip on the mainstream, has quietly created a vintage all of its own.
