As Ralph's heading North next week he thought it'd be a good time to check out the new People EP from psych rockers The Jackals who hail from Edinburgh.
A tight knit musical unit who are known for their blistering live performances, the band's sound combines cryptic lyrics with expansive guitars, underpinned with the solid grooves of the bass and drums.
The Jackals are Scott Watson - vocals & guitars, Paddy McMaster - drums & vocals, David Panton - bass & vocals and Gary Quilietti - guitars
Describing themselves as making cosmic rock and roll, The Jackals worked with legendary producer Owen Morris (Oasis and The Verve) on their double A side Holding All The Roses/L.E.A.R.N with Morris saying of the experience ”I've had a very good time mixing tracks for The Jackals, a great band with soulful, massive tunes".
With tracks like the rousing Rasperry Moon they're a shoe-in to catch live. They're playing The Duchess of Kirkcaldy on Friday July 31st.
