For the past six years, Toronto’s experimental pop mutineers, Jaunt, have been working on and anticipating the release of their first album, All In One. The band, which features several of the city’s well-avowed musicians, created a richly imagined, fully developed project which is emblematic of Jaunt’s realized sound and spirit — a kind of bright generativeness, which came from a wide rolodex of influences, pleasantly ranging from hip-hop to new-age.

With two EPs under their belts over the past four years, Jaunt‘s “All In One” the Toronto experimental pop band’s first full-length — is the fruit of years of labour and it shows in the tightness and completeness of each track.
With the help of co-producer Alex Sowinski of BADBADNOTGOOD, the band are united in their ability to create so many moving parts and countermelodies while maintaining focus on one lead expression throughout each track. Jaunt’s ability to replace the hegemonic idea of lead guitar with a variety of acoustic piano licks is refreshing and allows the guitars to shine in a more rhythmic role.

This move can be tricky, but Jaunt introduce subtle hooks that keep the listener up to speed with the progressions of each composition, like in second track “Nostalgia for the Present Moment,” which features catchy, cutting piano melodies throughout the composition. The harsh upper register of an old piano dangles over the vocal melodies in contrast to the smoothly chorused synths that melt to fill the spaces in-between.

Our debut album ‘All in One’ is out everywhere today! We’re beyond thankful for everyone who helped shape the record in some way or another over the last few years. Despite the strange moment we’re currently collectively experiencing, it feels important for us to release this music now. It was a labour of love, and I feel the music reflects a sense of optimism and positivity that’s good for all of us!

Thanks for being here,
The Band:
Pat, Caitlin, Daniel, Duncan, Nick & Tom

Two dollars from each record purchased will be given to Black Women in Motion, a “Toronto-based, youth-led organization that empowers and supports the advancement of Black woman and survivors of sexual violence.” Jaunt will match all proceeds/gross sales up to $5000 CAD.
