A London based five-piece psychedelic rock band who were recently named Louder Than War's 'Best New Band in the South', Jacoby are back with a blazing new single.
The band, who formed in 2020, took inspiration for their name from the cult TV series character. They are a psych drenched rock n roll band imagined out of its members collective dreams. All five members of this band have come together bringing a unique skill and dimension to the group resulting in something that is so fresh and exciting, it’ll blow your mind.
The band’s debut single ‘Freedom Ain’t No Sin’ was released in December 2022 receiving praise and airplay from the likes of BBC 6 Music and although still gaining momentum in its own right, the band have wasted no time in cracking on with it and getting another single release in the bag with the announcement of the release of ‘Do The Right Thing’ which is out now.
Musically the track is a smorgasbord melting pot of creative genius, withs its synth reverbs, electric guitars and direct lyricism, it’ll have you riled up and ready to go doing 0-60 in 5 seconds.
Speaking of the single, the band explained, "‘Do The Right Thing’ is all about breaking bad habits and stepping up to the plate. It's a short life. Don’t be left behind sitting in the same shit pub having the same conversations that you were having 10 years ago. Be the best version of you, you can be.”
Both ‘Freedom Ain’t No Sin’ and ‘Do The Right Thing’ were recorded at the world famous Rockfield Studios in Wales (Oasis, Iggy Pop, Black Sabbath, Queen and many more) and were produced by Tim Lewis who goes under the pseudonym of Thighpaulsandra. Lewis has worked with greats such as Spiritualized and Julian Cope and is currently part of Tim Burgess’ band, The Charlatans, as well as playing keys for the band Hawkwind amongst other things.
Both singles are taken from the band’s upcoming album ‘Shamanic Ecstasy’ which is due for release in May 2023.
