Only The Poets have shared their anthemic new single ‘JUMP!’ via EMI Records.
Produced by King Ed and mixed by Dan Grech, 'JUMP!' is an urgent, attention-grabbing next step from a band already inspiring fervent support from their fast-growing fanbase.
Singer Tommy Longhurst promises,
“So if you’re gonna run, I’ll run with you/ Falling off the edge of the deep blue/ My mother always warned me when I was young/ But if you’re gonna jump I’ll jump in too,”
A rousing call to arms set to widescreen, galloping riffs, it bridges the gap between sparkling indie-pop and the everyman swagger of Bruce Springsteen and, more recently, Sam Fender.
“JUMP! is about all the times when you need to follow your heart and not your head. Too often in life we don’t take the leap, always wondering about potential problems and over thinking. It’s a song all about being completely unapologetic about jumping into something new and exciting, whatever that might be.”
Comprised of Tommy Longhurst, bassist Andy “Roo” Burge, guitarist Clem Cherry and drummer Marcus Yates, the Reading four-piece have established themselves as one of the UK’s biggest emerging live acts in just a few short years. Unsigned until recently, the band’s DIY ethos saw them build things from the ground up, playing student house parties, pub circuits and small venues to selling out 1,600-capacity venues in the UK and across Europe.
Following sold out tours across the UK and Europe last year – and a massive run on the continent in support of Lewis Capaldi earlier in 2023 – Only The Poets have announced a European tour for this spring, with reduced ticket prices for fans who financially struggle to attend. Due to overwhelming demand, additional dates have already been added in Prague and Warsaw. The tour culminates in London on 3rd May for their headline show at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire.
