THE JACKOBINS + KUNG FU RINTINTIN + KARKOSA + CLAIRE ATHERTON
Formed in 2014, dubbed by Fred Perry Subculture and This Feeling as “big in 2016”, Liverpool based four-piece The Jackobins have taken the UK’s music scene by storm, headlining and selling out venues across the country whilst appearing on some of the UK’s most prestigious festivals including: Reading & Leeds, Tramlines, Live at Leeds, Dot to Dot, Sound City and Y Not Festival.
The band has been championed by BBC Introducing Merseyside DJ Dave Monks, giving the band heavy airplay and inviting them for a live session, whist Radio X made their single ‘Hasty’ Track of The Week.
Their previous two singles stirred a buzz around the band with ‘One More Chance’ airing on BBC Introducing Merseyside, BBC 6 and Radio X, in the mean time its predecessor ‘Waiting On The Sun’ gained the support of The View, Twisted Wheel, This Feeling and members of Hurts and Jake Bugg’s band. Which has left BBC 6 Music and Radio 1 eyes firmly on The Jackobins’ next move.
