New Music: Jay II – Taking Back My Fire

  • New Music: Jay II - Taking Back My Fire

Jay II (pronounced Jay the Second) is a Los Angeles based electropop duo who say they have an equal appreciation for Brahms and Banks. What does that combination get you? Find out below.

The duo, comprising of Hailey J and Jay Phoenix, both have a background in the classical field; Hailey graduating from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, while Jay studied piano and composition with Yale School of Music faculty.

Taking Back My Fire has a real feeling of craftmanship to it. It’s pop music, but it oozes sophistication, an appreciation of the art of song writing in every note.

Hailey’s trained vocals give the song a dramatic air, as the intoxicating combination of trip-hop and electronica underpins the reflective and often hard-hitting lyrics.

Electropop with a sombre tone but an open, inviting sensibility; Taking Back My Fire balances light and dark tones – lyrically and musically – with considerable and pleasurable ease.

Overly opinionated on everything, co-owner of AnalogueTrash and avid Scandinavian synthpop fan. Most likely to be found eating salt and pepper tofu or swaying to moody electronica in a dirty goth club. Will write glowing reviews for cat pictures.
