Z!NK Magazine calls The Static Jacks Debut Album “Almost Perfectly Crafted"

Through an album review, Shardae Jobson of Z!NK Magazine joins young, rebellious musicians, The Static Jacks, on their journey through the triumphs and tribulations of youth. On their debut album The Static Jacks give their listeners the opportunity to live vicariously through them. They invite the young and young at heart to follow along and join in the revolution.

Here are the highlights from Z!nk Magazines glowing review:

“The Static Jacks are one superb band that remain under the radar and
hopefully shall creep from under this modest placement as the year goes on.”

“…all twelve tracks permeate the youthful desires of our minds, identifiable
by past experiences of the four members.”

If You’re Young, with its multi-colored and elegantly drawn album cover
of seven revolving women in various stages of solemn thinking (recalling the
landmark Rolling Stones cross-gender artwork for 1978’s Some Girls), is a
better than you thought “indie rock” album that has so much more to offer
than many of its counterparts and what the recycled sub-culture sometimes
pigeon-holds itself to be.”

-Check out the full review here and be sure to pick up The Static Jacks’ debut album, If You’re Young when it drops August 30!

Jessi

Jessi was born and raised in Chicago, but she left her heart in NYC. She has been to more concerts than days of school, but somehow still made her way to university. Her idea of fun is an evening of karaoke to the worst songs of the '90s while a lit cigarette lies burning in the corner. She used to refer to herself as an "aspiring music journalist" but one day, she just woke up and decided she was one. That being said, she's always writing and always hungry for more. Anything of the 'rock' persuasion gets her motor running, ya dig? Follow her on Tumblr - http://hottrampinthecity.tumblr.com
