Kelcey Ayer, the creative force behind Jaws of Love., has always been an ace at writing a good love song—he just didn’t always know it.

“I used to think that in order to write about love, something had to be wrong,” he says. “I often got my material from pain, or insecurity, or problems—I thought I couldn’t write a good love song because I am in love and it’s going so well. But I’ve grown to realize that even in the most amazing relationships there are turbulent times and misunderstandings that are unavoidable. And that doesn’t mean that anything is doomed, but love is such a complicated thing. And I think that dawned on me after I had this collection of songs—there’s so much more to love than I thought. The idea of ‘jaws of love’ felt so perfect for this project because it’s all about love’s trials and tribulations.”

Ayer, known to fans as a member of the Los Angeles band Local Natives, has been writing his own brand of moody piano-centric songs throughout the past decade, but had never previously released any of it through any other vehicle besides the band. As Local Natives geared up to release their third album last summer, Ayer booked time in the same LA studio, Electro-Vox, where they had recorded it, and in a three-day burst he recorded seven of his own songs with the help of engineer Michael Harris and mixer Cian Riordan. Playing on the studio’s grand and upright pianos, Ayer allowed his emotional intuition to lead the way while working on his dark, dramatic music.
