Jane Eyre — briefly known as Boy King Island in its early stages — is a quickly rising band on the New York scene and marks a shift from the critically acclaimed folk of songwriter Jesse Rifkin’s previous efforts as The Wailing Wall. While fans might first notice their outfits (Travis sure did) or the omnipresence of R. Buckminster Fuller’s portrait onstage, the songs should really be taking precedence here. Combining the group’s collective backgrounds in music studies, rock bands, and assorted experimental noisemaking situations, Jane Eyre is a powerful force generating uniquely memorable, experimental pop music.
Featured song: “Home Alone 2: Lost In New York”
