London based Indie band The Jacques open their UK tour at Manchester’s Night and Day on 1 March, the first gig of an 18-date run of shows.
The tour follows the release of their new EP Born Sore.
Born Sore features the singles Kiss The Pharaoh, Alka-Seltzer and I Never Want To Be Your Boyfriend as well as the recently released title track. Speaking about the EP, singer Finn commented, “I’m pretty sure Born Sore was the first song we wrote with Will and Harry, so in a way the first song we wrote as this band. It’s really quite a dark piece of music about birth, fertility and original sin. There are hardly any lyrics actually – it’s more a big theatrical construction than a song. Of course, there is still some tongue in cheek though – “I’ve got two rubber toys, and they’re scaling Jacob’s Escalator” nearly got me in trouble with a producer once.”
Born Sore takes the listening on a journey, weaving between gritty, distorted, punk influences, chaotic instrumentation and lush dream-pop, and tied together by unique vocals, inventive musicality and evocative lyricism.
