Jay Jay Pistolet

We Are Free - Jay Jay Pistolet

My current obsession is Jay Jay Pistolet, or Justin Hayward Young. Unfortunately, JJP are no more, so you will have to settle for the internet to sample his folky sound - full of acoustic goodness and romantic lyrics. I also recommend listening to his cover of Paper Planes (originally by MIA) and his new band, The Vaccines - who are going from strength to strength with their direct lyrics and fast-paced sound. Tipped by BBC's Sound of 2011 poll and NME alike, they are definitely worth a listen.

PS. The Vaccines are touring the UK this autumn. Tickets on sale now.
