According to the artist bio: “AJR feature the talents of the Met brothers, Adam (vocals/bass), Jack (vocals/guitar), and Ryan (guitar/piano/vocals), who grew up in New York and got their start busking around the city, covering songs by such bands as Fun, Vampire Weekend, and the Beach Boys. A link to one of the group’s videos caught the ear of Australian pop singer Sia Furler, whose manager put the band in contact with former Columbia president Steve Greenberg. Greenberg then signed on as AJR’s manager, and in 2013 the trio released their debut independent single, ‘I’m Ready.’ Well-received, the track peaked at number 27 on the Billboard Mainstream Top 40 chart, and appeared on an initial EP as well as the band’s 2015 full-length debut album, Living Room. The single ‘Weak’ followed in 2016, reaching number eight on the US Billboard Dance Club chart and achieving platinum status. It was included on AJR’s sophomore full-length, 2017’s The Click, which also featured the single ‘Drama’ and the track ‘Sober Up’ with Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo. Following an expanded deluxe edition of The Click in 2018, the brothers returned in early 2019 with the bouncy ‘100 Bad Days’ single. Another single, titled ‘Birthday Party,’ followed in March 2019. Both tracks were included on their third LP, Neotheater, which reached number eight on the Billboard 200. AJR spent much of the year touring and eventually returned in 2020 with the bombastic pop single ‘Bang!’”
