"When it comes to playing rock & roll, The Jacks simply don't have a choice. It's what we listen to, it's what we play," bassist Scott Stone says,“and when you stick four guys like us in garage with instruments, it's just the kind of music we are going to make."
You can hear a primal energy coursing through vocalist-guitarist Jonny Stanback's gritty howl on "Walk Away," the lead single from their debut self-titled EP and the rest of the guys match his excitement with driving riffs and infectious melodies. It's an electric charge that surges through each of the record's five tracks, guiding Stanback, Stone, lead guitarist Thomas Hunter and drummer Josh Roossin when they play together.
The bittersweet incandescent shimmer of The Cuckoos is deeply rooted in classic rock, dance club funk, and neo-psych art soul, earning the young Austin, Texas band a remarkable reputation in just a few short years. The swampy groove arising from the collision of New Wave romanticism, swirling experimentalism, and loud punky guitars is somehow as perfect as it was improbable, decisively demonstrated on record and stage.
I Hate Love, the band’s debut album, is a musical manifesto. The diverse ten-song outing crackles with the electricity of The Cuckoos coming into their own. It’s all a result of the combustible chemistry between Kenneth Frost, Dave North, Eric Ross, and Cole Koenning developed in New York, California, Mexico, the UK, and of course, the Lone Star State.
The band’s first self-titled EP earned favorable comparisons to Tame Impala, Joy Division, and Pink Floyd, from esteemed publications like Classic Rock Magazineand Relix. I Hate Loveis rooted in their primal psych-rock post-punk soul but broadens its scope. It’s a new signature sound, one that will appeal equally to folks weaned on essential art-rock like Talking Heads and those attracted to retro-future acts like Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats.
