“The bending notes of guitars beget layers of sedated vocals, wistfully moving in the flurry of jagged chords. Keyboards and synthesizers float freely in the mix, blurting and bellowing out into the ether. It’s music to get lost in – the soundtrack to embracing a daydream that you don’t want to snap out of.”  -KEXP

“Jupiter Sprites quietly occupies a small parcel of land on the outer strands of the ether, their lilting dream pop imbued with an extra dose of hypnosis.”  -Dimestore Saints

“Dreamy, swirling pop that’s coated in a sheen of fuzz and honeyed, whispered vocals feels much like a journey to the furthest part of our dreams.” -The Grey Estates




The music of Jupiter Sprites hovers through the air like an enigma. Their sound is a unique mosaic that is at once artistic, boldly experimental, graceful, and accessible. Drawing from melodic soundscapes of the 90’s shoegaze movement and the polyrhythmic textures of modern electronic music, the band formed in Olympia, WA – a city steeped in musical history. With a history of collaboration since childhood, friends Max Keena (vocals/guitar) and Mike Elliott (drums) joined Alicia Capp (vocals/synth) in 2014, and later gained sister Portia Capp (bass/harmonies) to form what is quickly becoming one of the most original and striking bands in the Pacific Northwest.

The quartet have recently released a new, self-titled EP.

The Jupiter Sprites EP is available now on bandcamp.
