The Static Jacks

"It's hard to find a piece of press on The Static Jacks that doesn't mention the Strokes, but aside from the band's young age (19) and affinity for tight denim and boxy guitars, that comparison is tenuous. For one, the Strokes hardly ever play in the 6/4 cadence you hear in "The Waltz". They also never sounded like they were having as much fun thrashing bar chords and singing soul melodies as these guys do on "Stay A Lover." Finally! An indie band with optimism! We just picked up these Jersey natives for our in-house label, so dip into the tunes below and be stoked that there are kids still buying guitars out there instead of Ableton."
