Since forming Jets Overhead in 2003, this five-piece from Victoria, Canada has mesmerized crowds at home and abroad with their hypnotic take on trance rock. Having shared the stage with The Dandy Warhols, Broken Social Scene, The Stills, Sam Roberts, Stars, Our Lady Peace, Tegan and Sara, Powderfinger and 54*40, the self-managed band took time out of their touring schedule in 2005 to record their first full-length, Bridges. The distinctive LP was produced by Neil Osborne, longtime singer from Canadian rock luminaries 54*40, in his first official production role beyond his own band’s duties. Bridges was released in Canada on Microgroove/Warner in April 2006, and reached a top 10 position on Canada’s national college radio charts while also becoming a staple on emerging alternative outlets such as XM and Sirius satellite radio. The band received the prestigious national honor of a Juno nomination (Canadian Grammy equivalent) for Best New Group. With the growing story in Canada, Bridges was licensed for release in Japan (Columbia), and the UK and Europe (Sweet Nothing/Cargo) in 2007.

In 2008 the band returned to the studio to record the follow-up to Bridges, which will be released in Canada on May 26 of this year. “No Nations” was produced by Neil Osborne and mixed by Malcolm Burn (Emmylou Harris, Bob Dylan, John Mellencamp). The album alternates between classic pop moments and sonic experimentalism, echoing the band’s core influences from Pink Floyd and The Byrds to Radiohead and Beck.
