JODY AND THE JERMS Dish Up Charming Buoyant Single “Insatiable” Ahead of Album April 21st


Jody and The Jerms dish up charmingly buoyant single ‘Insatiable’

Third album ‘Wonder’ is out April 21st

“Poised and perfect pop… A joyous romp through everything that made pop so great during what many consider its golden age.. sassy and full of buoyant energy, shot through with chime and charm, and has lashings of sing-along-ability” ~ Big Takeover Magazine

“It’s almost like power pop, a bit Bangles… or jangle pop. Lovely” ~ Radcliffe & Maconie, BBC 6 Music

“Jody had to be coerced into singing, and she does it really well. It’s good isn’t it!” ~ Janice Long – BBC Wales

“Aglow in sugar-spun pop confections and unforgettable harmonies that conjures the jangling heyday of The Bangles and the buoyant rhythms of The Regrettes” ~ Stereo Embers Magazine

“Rapidly becoming Oxford’s most prolific band… Jody & The Jerms might be knocking out songs at a rate of knots but not at the price of quality” ~ Nightshift Magazine

Jody and the Jerms

UK indie pop outfit Jody and the Jerms present their infectious single ‘Insatiable’, showcasing exemplary buoyant indie pop that harkens back to the feel-good vibes of another less complicated time. This is the second taste of their full-length album ‘Wonder’, to be released on April 21 via JATJ Records, following up the lead track ‘Started Something’.

“Insatiable was inspired by the personal story of someone I once knew. The lyrics are predominantly about a high octane, powerful, larger than life, selfish man who lives life to the excess and well beyond his means. His domineering appetite for the best of everything, combined with his complete sense of self entitlement, does not leave much room for others’ feelings,” says Jody Jeger.

“In this song, it leaves his neglected partner feeling ignored, playing second fiddle to his ego and needing the bravery to leave. If only someone could make him see!”  

Their third album to date, this new collection of 12 tracks was produced, mixed and mastered by RIDE frontman Mark Gardener at his OX4 Sound Studio in Oxfordshire. Loaded with a healthy dose of melodic chrystallised indie pop that is heartfelt and honest, they present endearing jangle-pop songs that are both evocative and relatable.

“We recorded the guitars and drums with Mark Gardener at his OX4 Sound Studio almost as an afterthought following a long day of recording tracks for the ‘Wonder’ album. We were about to call it a day, but we just kinda let rip with the guitar riff and a real nice and simple rock drum beat. But it wasn’t until Jody set the song’s direction with the lyrics that we know we had a really good single,” says Niall Jeger.

Championed by the late Janice Long at BBC, among others, Jody and the Jerms is a collective revolving around Jody Jeger (vocals) and Niall Jeger (guitars and vocals) with other band members coming from The Anydays, who have graced the pages of NME, played with Radiohead and Supergrass, and were featured on Mark Radcliffe at BBC Radio 2.

‘Wonder’ follows their ‘Flicker’ album (2022) and debut album ‘Deeper’ (2020). Here, the Jerms deliver 12 jangle-pop gems, crafted with a sanguine innocence and vivid relatability. Warmly nostalgic and graced by Jody’s sweet-natured vocal, the band’s output radiates somewhere between The Go-Go’s, Blondie, The Bangles and The Darling Buds.

Formed in Oxford in 2019, Jody and the Jerms have been writing, recording and performing their blend of melodic and uplifting indie/ alt rock ever since, having enjoyed national airtime on Radio X (UK), Sirius XM (USA) and RTVE (Spain), as well as BBC 6 Music, BBC Introducing, BBC Wales and BBC Ulster.  

Jody and the Jerms’ sound recalls those untouchable days indie music enjoyed in the 90s, possessing seemingly effortlessness melodies and choruses which embed themselves in your head for days.

As of March 29, ‘Insatiable’ is available on BandcampSpotifyApple Music and other fine digital music platforms. The ‘Wonder’ album will be released on April 21 on limited edition CD, pretty pink vinyl and digitally. Jody and the Jerms will be touring the UK in support of this release.
