Jape follow the release of last year's critically acclaimed album Ocean of Frequency with a new single Please Don't Turn The Record Off / It's Shadow Won't Make Noise , out June 4th on Music/Is/For/Losers.
Infused with a jubilant, hook-laden melody and a buoyant charm, 'Please Don't Turn The Record Off" quickly burrows its way into your consciousness. Both sincere and danceable, it's a foil to the subtler shades present on the rest of Ocean of Frequency.
It's Shadow Won't Make Noise is a languid and deep number, with delicate, acoustic plucking, maintaining a fine line between modern pop craft and moodier shades of refined melancholy.
Jape, who have been touring extensively around the globe, picked up the Choice Prize Award - Ireland's equivalent to the Mercury - for the second time this year.
