Vancouver’s Jay Arner has been a man in the music scene for a while. He has done everything from fronting an indie rock band to being a remix producer to recording acts like Mount Eerie, Apollo Ghosts, Rose Melberg, No Gold and many more. So it only makes sense that with all of that diversity and knowledge he has decided to strike his own path with a self-titled LP released last month via Mint Records. Everything about this project has a DIY feel all the way down to the video for single “Surf Don’t Sink.” The methodically composed song has a breezy feel to it falling somewhere between the surf rock of early Beach Boys and Dent May. The visual is a simple one showing Arner crooning with his backing band reminiscent of the early 80s videos you would see at the beginning years of MTV.
