Let's Ride Jen Urban & The Box Official Music Video

This is the story of a Brooklyn band, a cool ride, the glory days of summer. Martha's Vineyard, that July: we grabbed the crew, our gear & a Super-8, & headed for the beach. Found some sweet wheels along the way. The shoot was all smiles, so we just had to trick the footage out with our favorite vintage wipes & effects. Even with its 21st-century cool, LET'S RIDE invokes a place of sun-soaked youth, where all we need is the wind in our hair & the dream in our eye ...

Jen Urban & The Box /  Brooklyn, NY dance pop meets glam rock

Known for incendiary live performances, a genre-bending repertoire, and irresistible songwriting,
JEN URBAN & THE BOX set a new standard for 21st century pop. Darlings of the Brooklyn scene, JEN URBAN (vocals, guitar) and ALAN D (vocals, bass, keys) unite the pop tour, rock stage and dance floor with a sophisticated and sexy sound dubbed "dance-pop-meets-glam-rock". The band delivers an alluring fusion of electronics, instrumentation, choreography, and visual effects, combining elements from wide-spanning musical forms to produce an explosively fresh catalog.

JUATB have taken the stage at numerous venues across NYC, such as Irving Plaza, Highline Ballroom, Best Buy Theater, Blue Note, Knitting Factory, and the legendary CBGBs. A fixture of Gotham nightlife, JUATB have made numerous appearances at hotspots like QxBxRx (voted Best Queer Party by The Village Voice) and held an 18-date residency at Paper Nightlife Award-winning venue Sugarland. The band has toured extensively throughout the East and West Coasts in addition t0 cementing an Internet presence, with tracks licensed by Keds.com and featured on various webisodes and online radio broadcasts.

Since the release of their debut, JEN URBAN & THE BOX have dropped 4 singles, starting with 2009's retro-chic "Let's Ride" (produced by Peter Murphy collaborator Andee Blacksugar). In 2010, the band began production with EDM wizard Zack Hagan at Manhattan's DFA/Plantain Studios (owned and operated by James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem). They released three songs from this collaboration, plus remixes, as singles from 2010-2011, and filmed an epic video for the song "21". In this time, JUATB also teamed up with their supporting company: Marie Davis (vocals, dance, violin), Casey Mauro (dance), Jason Williams (choreography, dance), and Ilan Cole (visual effects).

JUATB are endorsed by Daisy Rock Guitars and have received various honors, such as GO! Magazine's Award for Best NYC Band (for three years running) and Outstanding Band at the Planet Connections 2012 Awards. They have been nominated for multiple OUTmusic Awards and performed for LOGO-TV at the annual OMA ceremony. JUATB have also starred at OUTmusic's Stonewall 25th Anniversary Benefit Concert and Murray Hill's Miss Lez Pageant, headlined music festivals across the Northeast (including DC's famous PhaseFest), and were featured on German Rolling Stone reality TV. They have now completed production for their second record, and anticipate a Summer 2014 release. The band is currently scheduling tour dates for the spring & summer and plans to bring their act across the US and to Europe later this year.
