The Jackals – People


The Jackals release their new album, People, featuring a list of great indie infused blues/rock tracks available on vinyl September 14th 2015 and currently available to purchase digitally through this website.  Hailing from Edinburgh in Scotland, The Jackals have a great classic indie rock style and a live performance to back it up, combining classic clean blues guitar tones and big vocal sounds with head-bopping bass and drum rhythms.

The Jackals describe their sound as cosmic rock, which may explain why they have recently worked with well-known producer Owen Morris (The Verve, Oasis) on their double A sided single ‘Holding All The Roses/L.E.A.R.N.’. Morris had this to say of the experience:

[blockquote]”I’ve had a very good time mixing tracks for The Jackals, a great band with soulful, massive tunes”. [/blockquote]

FB_IMG_1436712225181The album, People, offers a relaxed and laid back approach to the indie rock style with a big harmonious sound which could be compared to bands like The Verve and Oasis; but also has vocal and songwriting similarities to artists such as Beck. ‘Ghost Soul Traffic’ is a song that has that upbeat sound similar to Beck with surf style guitar parts and a laid back vocal that fit together perfectly and really make it a standout track on the album. ‘Two Heads’ is another outstanding track on the twelve song album with an awesome vintage sound reminding me of a classic song from the 60’s, proving that the new album by The Jackals, People, will be a great purchase for vinyl.
