The Jet Age of Tomorrow is an American production duo and group from Atlanta, Georgia that consists of OFWGKTA producer Matt Martians and Hal Williams (also known as Pyramid Vritra). According to Martians, the group's music originated from instrumentals turned down by OFWGKTA's Tyler, The Creator and Hodgy Beats, who liked the tracks Martians sent them, but could not use them in their own music.[1]

A music video for the single "Wonderland" from the group's second album, The Journey to the 5th Echelon, was released on February 4, 2011.[2]

Aside from being members of The Jet Age of Tomorrow, Matt Martians is also a member of Odd Future group The Internet with fellow OFWGKTA member Syd the Kid. Hal Williams, under the alias Pyramid Vritra, is also a member of his own Atlanta hip hop collective, NRK (Nobody Really Knows).[3]

Hal Williams released his first full-length solo album, Pyramid, under the alias Pyramid Vritra, on August 7, 2012.[4]

The Jet Age of Tomorrow's third album, JellyFish Mentality, was released on May 24th, 2013 at 3pm EST for free through Odd Future's website.[5]
