bio

The Very Most was started in Boise, Idaho, USA by Jeremy Jensen in either 2002 or 2003 (he honestly can’t remember). Since that time, the band has released three full-length albums, seven EPs, and a bunch of miscellaneous tracks. Recorded entirely in Jeremy’s backyard studio (made from a converted shed), the music exists in a pretty little spot on the Venn diagram where The Beach Boys, Camera Obscura, New Order, Teenage Fanclub, and The Wedding Present meet. It makes heavy use of male/female harmony, vocal call-and-answer, and lushly layered instruments, both conventional and not-so-conventional. It’s all pop, and it’s all melodic, but it finds a lot of different ways of being melodic pop.

Live, the band has taken many different forms: from solo acoustic to a seven piece with a vibraphone. They’ve shared the stage with bands as varied as Built to Spill, The Ruby Suns, The Monochrome Set, and The Halo-Benders. They have played such festivals as NYC Popfest, Treefort Music Fest, and Indietracks (in the UK). Coming up is a compilation album of odds and ends, a 6ths-inspired EP of synth-pop with guest vocalists, and, with any luck, another full-length album.
