AJR just dropped a new song today, “Call My Dad,” which is streaming on Spotify now. Adam, Jack and Ryan announced the track along with a note to their fans. We’re thrilled to hear they are working on new music, and love their latest single “Let The Games Begin.” One of AJR’s biggest influences is The Beach Boys and you’ll definitely hear a nod to “Sloop John B” in the new song. Listen to “Call My Dad” on Spotify now.
It’s been a little while since we’ve heard new music from AJR but it was well worth the wait! Adam, Jack, and Ryan got into the Halloween spirit by tricking fans into a scavenger hunt and then treating them to a brand new song and lyric video.
“Let The Games Begin” is full of trumpets and sing along choruses that will get you amped up for anything! AJR directed the super creative touch screen inspired lyric video that even features Jack’s signature Maschine.
Watch the video below and read a message from the Adam, Jack, and Ryan here.
Indie pop band AJR released their debut album, Living Room, earlier this week, and celebrated with a concert at NYC’s Webster Hall last night. The album has been a long time coming for brothers Adam, Jack and Ryan, who got their start by busking around New York. Those experiences certainly influence their performing style – they’ve mastered the ability to win over a crowd with their energetic playing style.
AJR promised this wouldn’t be a typical show, and they had quite a few surprises in store last night. Using a GoPro camera and a selfie stick, they filmed a music video for the fan favorite, “Woody Allen” during their set. We can’t wait to see how it turned out! They also took crowd interaction to a whole new level when they played their new single “Infinity.” Drums were placed just in front of the stage, and Jack passed out drum sticks to the lucky fans in the front row so they could drum along with him. He later jumped into the crowd after a serious drum-off between the three brothers during “Pitchfork Kids.” They also invited surprise guest Alex Wolff on stage to play guitar for “Big White Bed.”
They played every track off of “Living Room,” and the packed crowd was singing along to every word, even the Overture. It was fun to see the album come to life on stage, and celebrate how far AJR has come. “Living Room” showcases AJR’s wide range and unique sound – from the mellow “Growing Old On Bleecker Street” to “Big Idea,” with it’s layered loops and lightening fast verses. We’re glad that “The Green And The Town” made the album, thanks to the support of their fans, as it’s one of our favorite tracks!
AJR is proof that if you have a Big Idea (pro tools and a mic), you can do anything you like.

The indie pop trio, brothers Adam, Jack and Ryan Met, announced that they will release the “Infinity EP” on September 23rd. The EP will feature their next single, “Infinity,” as well as fan favorites “Alice By The Hudson” and “3AM.” There’s even a remix of their hit “I’m Ready” by the guys themselves. (Have you entered their remix contest yet?) Check out the tracklisting below. You can pre-order the EP on iTunes or Amazon now!
2. “Alice By The Hudson”
3. “Pitchfork Kids”
5. “I’m Ready” (Remix by AJR)
AJR’s influences include Imagine Dragons, Kanye West, and the Beach Boys. The band manages to sound like each one of them, and yet none of them at all, as they have a sound that’s all their own. The brothers wrote, mixed, produced and recorded the songs on the EP from their living room in NYC. One of our favorite tracks, “Alice By The Hudson,” sounds like a modern day version of “Surfer Girl.” Watch a performance of the song below.
