about

After spending the better part of a decade at the helm of much loved Sydney band The Paper Scissors, Jai Pyne went quiet. Suffering from burnout and general music inertia, Jai took a couple of years hermitage in his inner city dojo: to recuperate, to listen to new music, to start a cafe, to surf.

At the close of 2013 Jai set himself a challenge: to upload a new track every month of 2014 to his SoundCloud. These tracks displayed absolute abandon and no respect for genre, no fear of style, no boundaries. Twelve slices travelling between weirdo disco, lo-fi soul, hip hop, bass music and pop. His love for making music returned, Jai was creating again; making songs for family and friends. Most of all he was making the music that he wanted to hear.

Jaisus is Jai Pyne’s musical second coming. Comprised of six compositions from 2014, the EP revisits Jai’s roots as a maker of lo-fi bedroom music and also provides a glimpse into the future: sounds and ideas smashed together with reckless care and pure joy.

The EP’s lead single ‘Papa Claps’ is an upbeat-sounding reflection on the sadness of lost memories and loved ones. The song perfectly illustrates Jai’s growth as a songwriter and musician. “I went to film school post-The Paper Scissors and studied screen music at AFTRS,” says Jai. “It helped me grow as a writer and producer as I started to think about sounds differently.” The result is a collage of beats, guitar loops and lo-fi percussion brought together by Jai’s distinctive vocal.

To coincide with the EP’s release, Jai is thrilled to introduce new label-venture Turk Town Records. Co-founded by Jai and his good friend Caleb Jacobs (Plum, The Cathys) the label will release debut EPs for both Jai and Plum.

FIRESIDE
Lyrics and Music © 2015 Jai Pyne

WE MADE A FIRE IN MY MIND
THE STAKES WERE HIGH BUT I RESIGNED
TO BE TRUE AND BE COOL TURN A CHEEK
BUT THE TRUTH BE TOLD I CAN'T PASS A WEEK
I TOLD YOU SO MANY TIMES NOTHING
BUT YOU KEEP ON HEARING THINGS SOMETHING
THAT I DIDN'T SPEAK
BLOOD IS THICK BUT YOU CAN'T DO NOTHING ABOUT IT

WE HAD A FIGHT NO BLOOD SPILLED JUST POKING EYES AND LIQUOR SWILLED

I DECLINE CLOSE MY EYES STAYING DOWN
NO FEAR INSIDE
STAYING TRUE STAYING COOL
WARM MY HEART WITH MY HANDS
BUT YOU CAN'T CLEAR THAT TASTE FROM YOUR MOUTH
FROM YOUR MOUTH
SHUT YOUR MOUTH
HEADING SOUTH
WITH MY HEAD BETWEEN MY KNEES CRYING
BLOOD IS THICK BUT YOU CAN'T DO NOTHING ABOUT IT
NOTHING ABOUT IT

My son you shine down
This water
This water
Are we going to make life
Me and you
Me and you
My baby you tried
Once
Once
This desert
This dirt
Are we gonna get married you and me
You and me
Soon soon

Paying all my debts back
Get all grown upon the black
Praying on some other shit
Get up get out over this
Shining like a beacon
We speaking we spoken
Real talk now not token
Doing this and sting fires
Dreaming big no holding back, come with us or get a smack
Two of us be on some other shit
Aiming so high hitting it
Shining like golden
Not olden we sold it
Real talk now just hold it

My son you shine down
This water
This water
are we going to make life
Soon
My son you shine
My son you shine

I can't move
I can't move
I've been blue from cold

Hope and faith and things
Olden days and swings
Surrounded by a family

Got the feeling come take my hand

I'll come round soon
I won't forget
I'll see you next time
In the cold

Hope and faith and things
Olden days and swings
Surrounded by a family

Shouldn't Do

Lyrics and Music

Maybe you had me
Maybe you want me
Maybe you need me from the get go

Thinking about it
Not thinking about it
Trying to feel it
Uh oh oh

Doing all these things that we shouldn't do
Doing all these things that we shouldn't do

You tell me you're moving
I tell you to stay there
I tell you to do it
You tell me you made it
And my mind is racing like a man with a bucket on fire
Then I'm chasing persuading you to my desires

Doing all these things that we shouldn't do
Doing all these things that we shouldn't do
That we shouldn't do

Maybe you had me
Maybe you want me
Maybe you need me from the get go

Thinking about it
Not thinking about it
Trying to feel it
Uh oh oh

(Siren)

Doing all these things that we shouldn't do
Doing all these things that we shouldn't do
That we shouldn't do

Papa Claps
Lyrics and Music © 2015 Jai Pyne

I suppose I should write something down this time
when I walk I slip
because my shoes are shit
I'm naked I'm stripped of all the good things all the good things in my head
You fucked up my brain and in this weather
inclement weather heavy weather
whatever you wanna call it
things just go the wrong way
I got my trees in a twist and my pants are pissed
but I try to keep my clothes on tight
but I don't feel right
and the lights dim once again in the cinema

Hold on tight to your memories
With the light you might get weak in the knees
Bleed in the brain on the shore on the seas
The lights get dim as the ice starts to thin

I propose that I figured nothing out this time
when I walk I slip my motor skills are shit
it's dark in my room it smells like soup
my thoughts I shoot going loop de loop
you travelled on the train over bridge not far away
but this sadness you carry for twenty years
like a back pack with a boulder

Hold on tight to your memories
With the light you might get weak in the knees
Bleed in the brain on the shore on the seas
The lights get dim as the ice starts to thin
