HE JACKS are a fever inducing fusion of enthralling melodies, mixed with upbeat yet emotive sounds. The band is back with their brand-new captivating single ‘Mess I’m In’ which is the latest edition of enchanting tracks that make you lose yourself into the diverse genre defining band that THE JACKS are.
The single opens up with oozing guitar and carefully constructed production which allows front man Jonny Stanback’s incredibly alluring vocals to take centre stage. The track progresses through a harmonic soundscape building it’s way toward the ever catchy chorus that will get stuck in your head for days.
“This song is about the end of a relationship, centralized around my experience of coming back to California”, explains Jonny. “The duality of a breakup is a motif throughout the song. The “mess I’m in” describes this duality, where there is simultaneously relief, freedom, and possibility, as well as isolation, loneliness, and longing. The fun beat and melodies highlight the positive side, and the somber lyrical tone highlights the negative side.”
While still very fresh, THE JACKS impressive journey has seen them sign to Universal Music Group’s EDGEOUT Records and releasing two EPs with producers Matt Wallace (Maroon 5, The Replacements) and Joe Chiccarelli (The Strokes, The Killers). Having surpassed an incredible 8 million streams to date and reaching over 397k followers on Tiktok alone, these EPs grabbed the attention of sports fans and major networks alike, landing them syncs in the 2019 NCAA College Football season and performances at Notre Dame Stadium, Super Bowl LIII LIVE, and the NHL Award Show. The group toured extensively and made waves with their raw, gritty, and unhinged live shows, selling out clubs as well as earning slots at major rock festivals like Aftershock and Sonic Temple.
Now back with their self-produced brand new single ‘Mess I’m In’, THE JACKS go full steam ahead towards the release of their debut album which is set to put the band firmly at the top of a new era of Indie Rock artists that are breaking through right now.
