Stolen Jars Release New Music Video "Eliot" With Brightest Young Things, New EP Out April 7th

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) The Montclair, NJ-based indie artist Stolen Jars has released a new video for the song "Eliot", the lead track off their forthcoming Glint EP. The song premieres today with Brightest Young Things. Band Leader and songwriter Cody Fitzgerald writes that the song was largely inspired by writer T.S. Eliot: "[Eliot] felt that in order for an artist to be truly universal they had to completely remove themselves from the work... But all of my music is really personal, it's about these tiny moments in a day. And so the song is basically me wrestling with that concept."

An imaginative work of animation from director Evelyn Ross, the fluid visuals of "Eliot" play like the daydreams of a young mind reflecting on the nostalgic lyrics of the song.

On Stolen Jars' upcoming Glint EP, each track plays alongside a composition from different video artists, animators, choreographers, and directors to create a "Visual EP" experience - Evelyn Ross for "Eliot," Jenelle Pearring and Nora Alami for "Gold Age," Abie Sidell and Felix Handte for "Long New York," Marissa Goldman and Blaine Dunkley for "Gone Away," and Henry Chaisson for "Afterlight." Glint will be released on April 7th, and is currently available for pre-order.

25% of all sales of the EP will benefit The Sylvia Rivera Law Project, a legal aid organization that serves low-income or people of color who are transgender, intersex and/or gender non-conforming. Cody Fitzgerald writes, "In the current political climate it is important to us that we do whatever we can to help protect those who are most targeted and most vulnerable. The Sylvia Rivera Law Project is a local organization that seeks to do just that, to protect and fight for transgender rights, particularly in relation to immigration issues and prison justice, areas which seem particularly salient to us right now."

Cody Fitzgerald, the group's songwriter and center of gravity, started writing as Stolen Jars in 2011. Fitzgerald's talents evolved within the nascent Montclair, NJ music scene which has produced notable indie rising stars such as Pinegrove, Forth Wanderers, and Half Waif. A constellation of musicians orbits Stolen Jars - vocalist Molly Grund, drummer Matt Marsico, guitarists Connor McGuigan and Peter Enriquez, and keyboard players Grant Meyer and Max Finkelstein push the band's energy to its outer edges during live shows.

Following the success of 2015's sophomore LP Kept - NPR's Bob Boilen named Stolen Jars as one of his top ten bands to watch at CMJ and the Deli Magazine featured the band on the cover of its CMJ issue, with additional coverage on Stereogum and Consequence of Sound, as well as the Village Voice.
