Premiere: Juke Jaxon – ‘Memory Man’

Indie songwriting with a soulful flourish...

Juke Jaxon are a pair of dreamers from London.

Growing up as part of the indie scene, the duo also had a clear love of soul. As time went by, this came more and more to the forefront – until they couldn't escape it any more.

Two voices, two different approaches, Juke Jaxon is a means to unique indie with soul. New cut 'Memory Man' is a case in point, with those raw, ragged guitars matched against some incredibly soulful vocals.

Juke Jaxon explain: "'Memory Man' is an amalgamation of some our key influences – on the one hand we love the raw guitar sounds from the 90s and its indie ethos, but we also grew up listening to emotive soul vocals – we wanted that resonance, but without the polish of a soul/pop production. Whilst messing around in the studio, we stumbled upon the Electro Harmonix 'Memory Man' Pedal & instantly liked the effects it produced."

"'Memory Man' metaphorically represents a person/figure that has inspired us/made an impact on our lives from a young age."
