Mystery Jets to deliver a dose of Serotonin this July

on April 25, 2010, 11:30am

There had to be a feeling that after they were dropped from label sixsevenine back in 2008, Mystery Jets would never fly high again. But in short order, the band has picked itself up and is feeling really good. So much so, in fact, that the UK outfit is calling its new album Serotonin. And if its previous efforts of danceable pop are any indicator, you should be hooked as soon as the album hits stores July 5th.

Recorded at London’s British Grove Studios, the album was produced by Chris Thomas, who has also produced UK heavyweights like Pulp, The Beatles, and Pink Floyd. As for the album’s mission statement, Henry Harrison, father of lead singer Blaine Harrison and a former live member of the band who played on this album, had an interesting way of describing the whatever-may-come vibe of the album.

“We’ve got our hands in the mud,” Harrison said. “That’s what I feel about this album. You take your hands out and if they’re covered in mud, you say, that’s alright. That’s the kind of feeling we want.”

Check out the band at this year’s T in The Park and Reading and Leeds festivals. Serotonin is out July 5th on Rough Trade.
