New York City duo Jack + Eliza‘s debut EP No Wonders was released this week on 10″ vinyl and digital formats via Yebo Music. The response to their first release has been equal parts overwhelming and exciting for the pair, as their music has been met with critical acclaim and word of mouth enthusiasm among music fans who have streamed their single “Hold The Line” over 130,000 times on SoundCloud in the past few months. Jack + Eliza will celebrate the release of No Wonders at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn, NY on October 1st, before making their CMJ debut with multiple shows later in the month.
The No Wonders EP was produced by Chris Zane (The Walkmen, Mumford & Sons, Passion Pit) and is suffuse with the effortlessness of youth, captured in ephemeral moments through a melodious and sun-drenched pop sound. Growing up in NYC as childhood friends, and now musical collaborators, Jack + Eliza have a beyond-their-years sensibility that belies their relatively young age. Eliza first showcased this talent publicly when she became the youngest ever winner of the prestigious John Lennon Songwriting Contest “Song of The Year” award at just 16 in 2011. When she and Jack began writing together the results were serendipitous, each amplifying the strengths and creativity of the other.
