Jemima Surrender Short Info

Wonky pop three piece from Bristol. Brel meets the Breeders.
After a couple of years playing solo under the Band inspired moniker Jemima Surrender, Millie roped in Adam on the drums to make real band for the first EP 'Ask Me Again'. Now a three piece with Andy on bass, Jemima Surrender released a full length record, 'The Uninhabited World', plus a slew of DIY videos in 2015. Previously the band have supported Giant Drag, La Sera, Lorelle Meets the Obselete and are now busy gigging around the South West.

Nice things people have said:

‘Jemima Surrender are back working their peculiar magic on ‘The Uninhabited World’. And in few words the band’s debut epitomises all that’s great about indie rock’ Bristol Live Magazine

‘Pure, unadulterated devotion oozes from this record’ Drunken Werewolf

'The poetic flourishes of Millie Phipps makes this self-released debut glimmer with radiant possibility. The narrative of each track blends guided prose and precise verse for a multifaceted collection of a budding ensemble’s first steps.' Another Dying Artform

'Clearly not afraid to do, well, anything, the band have put together an exciting debut of a long-player guaranteed to make the most ardent music lover sit up and listen.' Louder than WAR

'Sounding like a British St Vincent, the band blend indie guitars with quirky art-pop affectations' The Girls Are

'Jemima Surrender's debut album is a furiously infectious piece of work from the Bristol three-piece. Rammed to the brim with hooks that it's impossible not to be bowled over by the immediacy and directness of their sound and find yourself fascinated by and immersed in an album that doesn't quite play by the conventional rules.' Even the Stars

'In both the music and the depicted scenes [in the Hammer & Peg video] there is a sense of effortless, off-the-cuff brilliance which I can only attribute to Millie and her bandmates’ innate talent and confident sense of themselves.' The Vinyl District
