AJR is a strange musical beast to define, and the eclectic sounds of these three brothers never cease to surprise, from one release to another, through a mixture of addictive pop and potent electro textures. On the most recent album OK Orchestra (2021), the New Yorkers push the concept even further by inventing what they call ‘spoke-step’ (a reference to the popular British dubstep movement), that is as colourful as a Wes Anderson film. There is even a touch of the Beach Boys in the vocal harmonies on the very catchy track Bang!.
