Momentum Accelerator: Eyesore & The Jinx

Commenting on social media isolationism and how this feeds into the Brexit-mentality, with their twitchy, socially minded psychobilly, feels natural for Liverpool trio Eyesore & The Jinx. There’s no plan to be a ‘political band’, it’s purely the result of writing about what they see and feel in their lived experience.

They are surrounded by likeminded musicians in a burgeoning Merseyside scene, fostered by label/collective Eggy Records – pile down to a show here, pick up a bass guitar to fill in there, there’s a messy, organic feel to this community. This however belies the precision and clarity with which one of the scene’s chief proponents deliver invigorating and sardonic post-punk.

From these local foundations their sphere of influence is quickly expanding. Their last single, which won 6Music’s Roundtable when it was up for discussion, On An Island was produced by Jonathan Hartley from iconic Liverpool psych-surgeons Clinic) and have recently spent time in the studio with Fat White Family’s Nathan Saoudi in Sheffield, as well as recording their next single Swill with Daniel Fox from Girl Band.

Forming just over a year and a half ago, the three-piece have built up a community of support across the Northwest with high profile shows with Protomartyr, Duds and Downtown Boys and a number of festival appearances alongside bands like IDLES and The Wytches.

Their third single ‘Swill’ is released in April on Eggy Records, closely followed by an EP.
