Jet Plane is a band from Bryansk, Russia whose music unites such styles as post-rock, ambient, art-rock; and violin and bagpipes played by multi-instrumentalist Igor Zyuzko add a clear folk rock touch to the band’s sound.
But it’s not about the genres or desire to express something special in each tune – every listener is free to imagine whatever they are willing to hear in the music. That’s why there’re no vocals, which you have to get used to at first, and it contributes a lot to the freedom of perception.
Jet Plane is something cosmic with a little of Eastern scent and a shade of calm sorrow, resonant and melancholic, and warm like a summer breeze, imperceptibly recognizable and familiar in the heart of hearts.
“Pipe Dream” is the third Jet Plane album. Its mood, emotions and imagery have been inspired by events going on around us – in the here and now. Beautiful airy tunes entwine into an atmosphere of tension and dismay, ethereality and featheriness are followed by a vibrant crescendo. Peace and harmony seem a pipe dream; but it has long been considered just as inapproachable for a man to hit the skies and fly. So let us dream.
Classic post-rock harmonies enframed by violin remind of Mogwai and Yndi Halda. Apart from that, Jet Plane employ bagpipes and nyckelharpa, which is the band’s specialty distinguishing them from the rest. The album sound has been also moulded by famous Japanese musicians and sound producers Takahiro Kido and Kashiwa Daisuke having worked on album’s mixing and mastering.
