After a year of creating music together between 2014-2015, Magpie Jay kicked off its journey by becoming a band that feeds itself from inspiration.
Their first album titled “Monte Claro” paid tribute to one of the band’s favorite places for making music, inside an old royal farmhouse located in the province of Guanacaste, Costa Rica. Their first LP was recorded in Conquista Records soon after the band made frequent monthly visits to Monte Claro. By 2015, Magpie Jay released their first single video titled “Sexy Sinister Sex” prior to their album release later in April. “Today’s Conversation”,“Lourdes”, are part of the series of single videos along with live-session program Conquista Sessions done during this time for Magpie Jay’s visual work of art.
Much has changed since Magpie Jay first emerged with their first LP Monte Claro. After the band’s album debut, the creative process of making music together continued to flourish between vast music genres that were being listened to and somehow influenced new musical territories to explore. Magpie Jay returned to Guanacaste to work out the songs but this time stayed at a beach house, located in Punta Islita.
Islita is Magpie Jay’s second album title. For second time it resembles a place from Costa Rica where the band felt inspired and comfortable working together. The process of Islita finally made 17-recorded songs, but the band’s second LP consists of 14 songs.
