Following support slots with Paolo Nutini, BBC Radio support and an iTunes Top 10 chart placing for their last single Kiss Me, Manchester folk-rockers A Band Called Jack are back with their new single Voices (out now on MST Sounds).
“Voices is song that tackles Bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, which are topics and illnesses we take seriously as it’s touched us – as we are sure it has many others” explains guitarist Matthew Brookes. “All of our songs have a simple formula, in that if it works stripped right back to just an acoustic guitar and vocal then you aren’t far off. We’re working on the album now and we felt Voices is a great introduction to the band and the new songs.”
As a long-time fixture in Manchester as part of the same arts scene that produced Elbow and David Gray, the band officially formed in 2010 and have worked their way up from gigs in empty pubs to giant crowds at the Castlefield Arena. Following in the musical lineage of North-West guitar pop, their folk-leaning songs and relentless work ethic are gaining the band a loyal fanbase evidenced by iTunes chart placings and sold out shows. They are currently hard at work on their long-awaited debut album.
