Never Had it so Good
Never Had It So Good is a six track EP from Dublin band Jet Setter. It follows on from their short and punchy introductory singles “Not Yet” and “Dippin’ Toes”. Side One content includes howling guitars and involuntary memory as both a warning and a confession, with harmonies, psych and paradoxical lyric. The lead single “Forget About It” is a ripper with a caustic theme and resigned refrain. Side Two packs uncertainty hiding behind a confused bravado and borrowed lines, as well as newly defined elements of jangle and swagger. It ends with “Nothing Left To Say To You”: fuzzed out guitars, bludgeoned floor tom and melodic/cathartic feedback.
The EP was recorded and mixed by Rían Trench in the luxurious Meadow Studios over two very productive days. The songs had been pieced together over the preceding months by cribbing ideas from unsuspecting films, books and records.
