Formed in 2013, Louisville, KY's Jaye Jayle are veterans of Kentucky's dark indie scene. Naming themselves as a pen name or a pseudonym to veer away from a traditional band moniker, the group sought to eliminate unnecessary variables and deconstruct their compositions down to their most concentrated essence. Jaye Jayle owe less to our nation's roots music and more to peripheral rock bands that have taken the "less is more" attitude to its furthest reaches. Their music is an exercise in tension and restraint, a tightrope act between singer-songwriter traditions and art rock experimentation, and an intersection of Southern cultural permutations and otherworldly sounds. The band follows-up their excellent debut full-length, 2016's House Cricks and Other Excuses to Get Out, with the six-song split EP with Sargent House label mate Emma Ruth Rundle entitled The Time Between Us and featuring three songs from each artist.
