Jaywalkers from the album Time to Save the World available on Burnt Chili Records
A flurry of strings (guitar, mandolin, upright bass, fiddle) spin around the harmony vocals of Jaywalkers on their recent release, Time to Save the World. The UK-based trio play the music of the mountains, blending voices with musical backing that liberally borrows from Folk, Bluegrass, Country, and Western Swing traditions. Time to Save the Worldlets the music take the first steps into the album, the opening instrumental cut setting the dance bar with “Homage to the Fromage”, Jaywalkers sticking to strings-only as they play a reel for “Burnt Chili Creek”. Chopped chord strums partner with sky-seeking fiddle notes to lead the way into “This Time/End of the World Waltz”, the tune namechecking the Time to Save the Worldalbum title as it twirls towards a planetary exit.
Sonically, Jaywalkers are an all-inclusive bridge that spans the scope of Americana music, linking British and American musical traditions as one sound. A Bluesy strut cakewalks into the confessions of “Too Close for Comfort” while Classic Country whispers to the barroom mirror staring back in “How Many Whiskeys?”. Stepping to a waltz sway, Jaywalkers pledge their hearts in “This is the One” as the slap of wheels defines the beat and decisions for “Life I Choose” while Time to Save the Worldshakes off the rain in the storyline to make a request with the rushed rhythms of “(Won’t You Please) Rescue Me”.
