Dimitri Giannopoulos, John Margaris, and Jamie Vadala-Doran comprise Horse Jumper of Love. Formed in 2013, the Boston, MA-based band has released two full-length records and a demo anthology, and is working on a third LP. They tour often and have shared bills with bands such as Duster, Spirit of the Beehive, and many more. I’m personally a huge fan of their music and was excited to sit down with them.

Their label, Run For Cover describes their music as: “Like abstract collages, their songs jumble richly detailed scenes and vivid imagery, papering over one moment with the next until each string of seemingly unrelated thoughts coalesces into a breathtaking work of art, one that reveals deep truths about ourselves and our psyches.” Listen above or on iTunes or Spotify.

  • how they met and started playing music together
  • lessons learned from recording their first and second albums
