King Jacks has been causing quite a stir. ‘Heroes’, the first single from his debut album ‘Please Everyone, Please Yourself’, is being used all over Champions League, Sky Sports and stadiums nationwide. The video for his debut features East London hard man Danny Dyer, and has received glowing reports across the board. King Jacks can count Zane Lowe and Mark Ronson amongst his fans. He’s also got a new venture in ‘Project e11even’ that involves getting in different directors to make a video for each of the 11 tracks on his album; 11 remixes of each song, by 11 different remixers followed by an 11-date tour.


The London based four piece have been busy boys of late, playing supports slots alongside the likes of Dog Is Dead, The Whigs, and one of the 2011’s best newcomers, Anna Calvi. They make music for people to dance to, citing influences as warmer climates, 80’s pop records, lo-fi guitar and global beats and discos. So quite a combination. Their debut single ‘Headstong’ was released earlier this year and was well received by the likes of XFM, Radio 1 and BBC 6. If you fancy catching them live head to London’s The Old Queens Head on August 4th.
