Bristol newcomers The Jacques have been confirmed to appear on the BBC Introducing Stage at Reading / Leeds Festivals later this month. This follows appearances at Glastonbury, Isle Of Wight and Secret Garden Festivals earlier this summer.
To celebrate the band have put a fizzing new single ‘This Is England’ online. It is taken from their ‘Artful Dodger’ EP. Is it something you’d consider for an appearance on with guitars? Check it out below and let me know what you think
This Is England:
NME – “Sounds like a pre pubescent Pete Docherty fronting Echobelly”
Sabotage Times – “Two sets of brothers – aged 16-21 – sound like the band that could be the new breed. Predicted for the shortlist for the Mercury Music Prize 2015!”
Clash Magazine – “Think Ray Davies at his most acerbic,think Paul Weller at his most romantic,think four kids barely old enough to drink slating all around them. Three minutes of adolescent rage and tuneful hooks”
Louder Than War – “The Jacques are a prime example of British indie music at its best, and a poke in the eye to all those twerps telling you guitar bands are dead”
Huey Morgan – Fun Lovin’ Criminal / BBC 6 Music – “This is Pretty DJ. You’ve never heard from them before, it’s probably the first time they have been played on the radio, but you will be hearing from them again”
