The Static Jacks Builds Bridges And Tunnels

The Static Jacks are an up and coming band from New Jersey. Their songs have been featured on Nickelodeon and XM Radio. There sound is very modern, bordering between punk and new wave. They have new 4-song EP out entitled "Bridges and Tunnels". The first single, "Fire On The Bridge And In The Tunnel Below" has a great upbeat tempo with a comparable sound to very early Police. Songs like "Stay A Lover" and "Wine Cellar" really show off the band's "new wave" sound. While the musicianship of these songs are very good, the vocals suffer slightly from an absense of passion in the lyrics. The Static Jacks are currently on their summer tour and will be performing at Billy Baloneys in Danbury, CT on June 28. Check out the band's website (www.thestaticjacks.com) for song samples, videos, merchandise and more.
