J Travis is the solo project of Jason Travis. It's also the musical amalgamation of west coast exploration, lots of coffee, a little bit of '90s nostalgia, and the wisdom that comes with growing older.
Travis’ heartfelt, cryptic lyrics wash over dreamy arrangements, dense walls of guitar, and gorgeous vocal harmonies. Brain Delay represents a new chapter for the former Sealions member, one in which he stretches his songwriting chops and uses his life experience to craft loose-limbed, hook-filled jams. Written over the course of two years but recorded in six days, Brain Delay collects pure joy and painful challenges, bottling them up in a half dozen tracks.
A move to Los Angeles found Travis within walking distance of the ocean. He’s often more inspired by his surroundings than by any songwriter, though he shares sensibilities with Real Estate, Nada Surf, Teenage Fanclub, and The Lemonheads. Brain Delay's breezy pop songs flirt with folk, power pop, and indie rock, all while eschewing genre trappings. Travis’ songwriting talent is in ample bloom on earworm singles like “Albatross” and “Battle Scars.”
All told, Brain Delay is a darkly playful foray into new musical textures, complete with whip-smart lyrics and infectious hooks.
