The Jezabels

The Jezabels are a band from Sydney, New South Wales that formed in 2007.

We are a thing that came out of a few chance meetings at Sydney University. You see, Heather and Hayley had been playing music together for a while.Inevitably came the journey south from Byron - being their place of youth - to Sydney for a foray into higher education.

The Jezabels are a band from Sydney, New South Wales that formed in 2007.

We are a thing that came out of a few chance meetings at Sydney University. You see, Heather and Hayley had been playing music together for a while.Inevitably came the journey south from Byron - being their place of youth - to Sydney for a foray into higher education. Nik and Sam were studying atSydney University also. And you know, for some reason you just meet peopleâ€.

We don’t have a manifesto as such, but we do have definite intentions in what we do. We wish to play pop, but with a recognizable element of self-awareness. We wish to be emotional, but with a sense of certainty that our audiences won’t walk away thinking that we take ourselves too seriously. Whatis paramount is an attempt to push this thing called the culture industry in some direction which makes it more human. (I guess this is all too ambitiousbut oh well… We do try.

Heather studies piano at the conservatorium and reads a bit too much Russian literature. Hayley looks toward her personal canon of pop ballads forguidance in all situations and believes we must return to the way life was prior to the poker machine epidemic. Nik is a science student who imbues hisdrumming with formulas and mathematical complexities. Sam is a country music-playing, Marx-spouting communist with a love of all things meaningfullysubversive.

I guess our music derives from these things. « hide
