Jingo

Jingo is a dynamic and curious four-piece affair. They are, consequently, Jack Buckett, his U.S. wife, Katie, Joseph Reeves and latest addition, Sahil Batra, discovered from their own warehouse Open Mic Night. The four have been making music with other bands in Brooklyn, New York and London for a fair few years but have now embarked upon a shared venture and have a loyal and devout group of co-patriots in the UK and US. Supporting Graham Coxon of Blur as their first gig in March 2013, they were out of the blocks and running. Since then they have been keeping busy in the studio whilst touring across the country recieving widespread attention from online bloggers (including a feature in FHM) In November they won the Made in Shoreditch Music Factory competition and 2 days recording at the legendary Strongroom studios. Jingo is a unique genetic composite, and one that has not been seen too often on the music scene. We had a similar nationality cross-breeding with Fleetwood Mac, The Magic Numbers, and a few other acts, but they are few and far between. They are set to release their debut album in summer 2014.

PRESS

“Angsty, melodic brilliance. They’re a no nonsense act that fill the void left by the wimpy, foppish haired indie acts of late.”
FHM

“Listening to London’s Jingo is a bit like listening to a rockier Portishead with Beth Gibbons being force-fed steroids.”

HOLEYTONAL

“the resonating, smouldering vocals courtesy of Katie, the eerie and the elegant yet fierce classical tones to the bass and guitar lines”

“Overall the songs share a lush full sound with plenty of variety, and musicality. “-“Kate Bucket, has a lovely voice that has a great masculine power without losing the feminine grace (Annie Lennox rather than Grace Jones, Aretha not Nina)”
