Already having garnered support from the likes of Amazing Radio, BBC London introducing, Clash Magazine, Artrocker, Hypetrak + and having previously run their own successful London DIY open mic night ‘Cable Street Electric’, Jingo are anything but short of valuable influence and the evidence speaks for itself. Jingo’s first live show saw them supporting Blur’s Graham Coxon – an early yet fitting achievement for a band with success set firmly in its sights.
Jingo, along with the new addition to the rhythm section, Chris Smith, have found themselves drawing influence from BRNS, Not Blood Paint, Interpol, Wolf Alice, Jeff Buckley, Prince and Lana Del Rey to create their vivacious, driving sounds. In 2013 the band won the ‘Made in Shoreditch’ competition that entitled them to two days recording time at the infamous Strongroom Studios (Artic Monkeys, Depeche Mode, Radiohead, British Sea Power, Primal Scream). The end result was ‘When You Want Me’, a single doused in originality that begs to be heard.
With their debut album ‘The Art of Loving’ receiving recognition from acclaimed UK tastemakers, Jingo are more than ready to raise the bar in 2015
Jingo are taking major musical leaps. Streamlined songwriting, amplified rawness, artfully implemented melodies deservedly draw attention to the kind of band they have become – serious musicians brimming with promise. Egoless instrumentals and cascading percussion together with Katie’s distinctive and devoted vocals scream Warpaint with a Portishead shade.
See them for yourself in our intimate venue this October.
