The London-based quartet is made up of a host of talent. Electronic producer Jolliffe, vocalist ECKOES, Modestep’s founding member Tony Terror and GENTRY – forming the acronym that makes the band’s name. The combination of skills creates a unique and interesting flavour, giving Jet-G a truly unique sound – one that even Underworld’s Karl Hyde felt compelled to remark on saying: “I had no idea I was waiting for a sound like this, – turns out I was…”
‘Keep Me Waiting’ is a stirring track. The haunting lyrics speak of losing an unborn child, while the sparseness of the arrangement reinforces the concept of emptiness and creates emotion within the track.
The black and white video of the group in their studio drives this home, the overlaid takes creating almost ghost-like imagery. ECKOES‘ vocals truly spark the imagination and linger long after the end of the song.
“Our latest song is about how it must feel to lose your unborn child alone in a hospital bed. To be told there’s no heartbeat but you can hear life as normal continuing outside. She’s singing to her child that will come, the one that keeps her waiting.”
