Fast Planet is gearing up for their debut self-released record, Jes. While this may be their debut, the members have been playing music together for nearly ten years; though until now it's always been rock music. Now they have given in to a damp dark form of beat production, leaving the only inklings of a rock band in the vocals and at times song structure. The combination of their spacious production and highly emotional vocals creates a record that will tug hard at the heart strings and come across as refreshing all at once. It's a slow grower, letting you pick out new pieces of subtle intricacy with each listen. They've hooked us up with the premiere of "I Want Out," a song that comes across just as tragic as its title might sound. It's tough to go through that stage of realizing a relationship is coming to an end, and Fast Planet manages to fully capture that feeling without it completely breaking our hearts.

Jes drops July 31, and you can pre-order it now via Fast Planet's bandcamp.
