Jape began in 2003 as a solo project of Dublin musician Richard Egan. Over the years, the band has evolved to become one of Ireland’s most exciting and energetic live acts.

Jape’s music blends meticulously crafted lyrics with upbeat electronic rhythms. Using an innovative mix of live instruments, hardware samplers and sequencers, the band create a sound that encompasses many different styles and spans genres, a sort of gothic pop. They have been covered by The Raconteurs and won the prestigious Choice Music Prize in 2008.

This Chemical Sea is their fifth studio album and was released in January 2015, via Faction Records.
