2007 – present (10 years)
Westfield, Union County, New Jersey, United States
Since they formed in 2009, Westfield, New Jersey’s The Static Jacks (lead vocalist Ian Devaney, guitarists Henry Kaye and Michael Sue-Poi, and drummer Nick Brennan) have earnestly burned their own path through indie rock’s crowded field. Ignoring music’s fickle trends, the Jacks have forged a unique blend of punk, garage, and soul sounds for a sonic punch to the gut and heart.
The band has always held fast to a D.I.Y. and collective ethos, and its four members are more like brothers than mere friends playing music: up till now they’ve self-released all their own material; Henry designs all of their art, from album covers to T-shirts; and, perhaps most importantly, their creative process is all-inclusive, so every facet of every song bears the mark of every member.
This spring, The Static Jacks teamed with producer Chris Shaw (Ted Leo, Bad Brains, Elvis Perkins in Dearland) at famed Stratosphere Sound in New York City to record their debut full-length "If You're Young". The album will drop August 30th.
