When composing your next beach day playlist, be sure to incorporate some jams from a band on the rising, Javelin. The mellow yet upbeat tempo is sure to put you in a good mood while you soak up the warm summer sun.
Javelin, a Brooklyn based duo combination, has been on the music scene since 2005. To them being creative is about processing life and turning it into an object much like the way bees process flower pollen.
“I think what comes out of us generally contains happiness, humor, joy”
says pianist and cellist Tom Van Buskirk. “On the flip side there is anxiety, fleeting beauty. My favorite emotion in music is the crossing point that contains joy, beauty and sadness. Maybe ecstasy? ”
Perhaps this multidimensional approach to creating music is what creates their unique sound. The guys of Javelin each play an array of instruments that they collaborate to make their electro songs.
“Our music conveys different images to us depending on the record” says Buskirk. “A beach chair, dusty chaps, the moon.”
The duo knew their future was in the music business from a young age. As teenagers they would get a thrill out of making their own recordings and would find themselves bored when not involved in music. For now, their future is up in the air. In the next year the band hopes to produce new music, expand their frequency of performances, and explore weird side roads.
