Jons is a Canadian indie-rock band from Victoria, British Columbia. Their latest album released earlier this month is one of the best finds in a while and a record I've really enjoyed! The opening track - "Trip Ads" begins with an infectiously off-kilter riff and is soon joined by laid-back vocals that drift through the entire album.

Jons fits seamlessly into a playlist with the likes of Mac Demarco, Real Estate, or Unknown Mortal Orchestra; they blend psych, indie and pop with the best of them. While you can definitely hear influences from Real Estate in the vocals, and Demarco when it comes to guitar chords, they've still been able to carve out their own distinct sound.
