“When I write a song,” says Mikel Jollett, co-founder and creative driver of the Californian five-piece The Airborne Toxic Event, “I’m trying to get down an emotion, a scene or a setting. Everything important that happens after that happens between the music and the listener; the rest of it is all mythology. The collective interpretation of it is way more important than what I think.”
There’s no reason to doubt the truth of that statement. Except that Jollett does do a lot of thinking (or over-thinking, as he himself would put it), and what he does, the way he spends his days, matters to him deeply. Besides, he’s had a lot to think about in the five years since The Airborne Toxic Event’s 300,000 plus, UK Top 20 debut album ambushed and enraptured fans with its captivating blend of literate, visceral indie rock and propulsive, anthemic choruses. That self-titled album found Mikel Jollett addressing the break-up of a relationship with a candour that was sometimes uncomfortable but always compelling.
On The Airborne Toxic Event’s stunning 2nd studio album, All At Once, he and the band had a new urgency, a tighter cohesion and a fearlessness that is thrilling. Mortality, loss, the battle between the comfort of complacency and the need for change, the issues – both personal and political – that continued to draw individuals and nations into conflict the world over: these were, and still are big subjects, but Jollett doesn’t just dip his toe in the water. He dives right in.
Now, The Airborne Toxic Event members Mikel Jollett, Stephen Chen, Noah Harmon, Anna Bulbrook and Daren Taylor look them squarely, fearlessly, in the eye, grapple with them, and wrestle them to the floor as their third studio LP, Such Hot Blood, extends their massive fanbase even further. The Airborne Toxic Event have taken another opportunity, and have risen to the challenge. Now it’s over to us to catch them live in 2013.
