Jason Martin on IMR with a new album Young in My Head

Young in My Head by Starflyer 59

Jason Martin's 15th Studio Album doesn't disapoint. Starflyer 59 is back at doing what it all started with... more dreamy shoegaze.

Jason Martin is iconic in the Christian indie rock world. Starflyer 59 has been a household name for years, since the beginnings of the Christian rock movement. Incorporating elements of Shoegaze, Beatle-esque pop and dreamy space rock, Jason has continued to deliver wonderfully crafted indie rock over the last 25 years. Morphing across and over these genres with every album.

This is Jason Martin’s 15th studio album, and after a hiatus he is back with Tooth & Nail, and the sound is more of the same. To which I say, “Don’t change a thing!” The album rings with earlier sensibilities, bringing in more of the shoegaze and brit “Smith’s” style than the last few albums. Which featured a much more pop influenced sound.

I’ve never thought of Starflyer as being a very produced band, that’s not why I would choose to listen to it. This is rock, this is emotional and brittle. It will seep into your skin,and carry the weight of your thoughts… It’s really cool.

Ultimately Starflyer 59 is unmistakably Starflyer 59, there really isn’t a substitute as no one can quite pull off the emotion and tonality that Jason has been bringing.
