Biography

Jupiter Rising picked a near-perfect band name. Like our solar system’s biggest planet, where gravity is much stronger, this Los Angeles act exerts a powerful pull. And the duo of Spencer Nezey and Jessie Payo are definitely on the ascent, as indicated by the title of their new album, The Quiet Hype. Besides, as a moniker, Jupiter Rising sounds damn catchy - and so do their songs.

Jupiter Rising create state of the art pop with clever twists. “I have no boundaries as a producer,” says Spencer. Listen to how he and Jessie swap verses atop crisp beats and enveloping atmospherics on “Falling Away”. This is what Top 40 radio should always sound like. Originals like “L.A. Girls,” a cheeky look at consumer culture in their hometown, and the percolating “Tres Cool,” bristle with a mix of sass and sonic innovation reminiscent of the edgy fare favored by international icons like Girls Aloud. Spencer’s sonic tweaks put the “sick” in classic, while Jessie sings with panache and precision on par with big-name divas.

The Quiet Hype refuses to stick to a single style; its grooves are contemporary, never trendy. “Our goal is to make music people can relate to, yet that is also new, fresh, and different,” emphasizes Jessie. “Something that is going to last, that has a little more depth.”
