With their debut album Pistola Melodica due to release in the Summer of 2014, Jet Force Gemini is preparing for an all out assault on today’s modern rock scene. The band pulls no punches with what promoter Leslie J Bialik calls ““…a perfect blend of straight-ahead raucous rock style, with very timely and relevant lyrics.”
Fronted by guitarist/vocalist Michael Christopher, Jet Force Gemini blends a tight vocal cadence that dances along with drummer Paul Richey’s driving and expressive beats. The melodies themselves are saturated with harmonic balance between Michael and lead guitarist Roman Bilko. The detail is intricate and deeply layered, often down to the syllable.
Roman’s memorable leads range between classic punk anthems and modern southern rock phrasing to blistering fast classic rock solos and hauntingly romantic ballads. Bassist Tim Riva bridges it all together with tight bass lines; blending scale with subtlety. “They are playing in the same playground as Fall Out Boy and My Chemical Romance,” writes The Musical Junkie.
The extent of the bands range can be heard between the group’s singles. “New Disco Era” is pop punk to the core. A strong showing of vocal harmonies, pop hooks, and throwback leads with a touch of dark humor. “Venom” plays on the modern rock foundation. An antihero love song that highlights the instrumental and vocal cadence the ties the entire band together. “Catalyst” is the fight track. It hits hard and fast, with a chorus that combines multi-layered harmonies and rapid fire double bass.
It is with this unapologetic style that Jet Force Gemini make themselves known. Not relying on hyperbole or clichés to define themselves; JFG uses a combination of high energy live performances, anthem-like choruses, and a series of original viral video content to stand apart from the atypical alternative rock genre. Simply put; it is animated, explosive, entertainment.
