First introduced to the world via a string of impossibly catchy singles that quickly became radio staples and soundtracked shows like Entourage, Suits and Workaholics, the Philly Jays released their much-loved debut album “Hope Is For Hopers” and won a bunch of awards that somehow got lost in their move to the other side of the world. After a bunch of bust-ups, break-ups and make-ups, the guys decided to give each other another chance, testing the waters in Berkfinger’s adopted home of Berlin, recording their pretty damn-weird LP Summer Of Doom. They liked it so much that Berkfinger put his life in a shipping container and relocated back to their hometown of Sydney to plot the proper return of Philadelphia Grand Jury.
A bunch of singles and a new album are due for release over the next year, all of which they’ve been recording at Golden Retriever Studio, which they just spent 2 years building literally from the dirt up.
The new single “$10k” sees the band return to their hooky roots and blends their of love B52s and New Wave with some crunchy modern production courtesy of a drum set stolen from A$AP Rocky’s touring setup.
