Liverpool indie rock/punk/post punk band Eyesore & The Jinx have announced their debut album ‘Jitterbug‘, and have also shared their new single “No More Nails“.
Due to be self-released on November 17th, the album was produced by Daniel Fox (Gilla Band) and recorded at Yellowbird Studio (Wirral) during the Summer of 2022. Pre-order your copy here.
Speaking about it, Josh Miller says:
“When setting out to write our debut album ‘Jitterbug’, I didn’t have a theme in mind. Instead I chose to write about whichever subject felt most pertinent at the time. Over the course of several months though, it became clear that there was a consistent thread amongst the songs regarding control or lack thereof, particularly in relation to the human body.
For as long as I can remember I’ve bitten my finger nails compulsively, often til they bleed. Lately they have resembled what a close family member called ‘cornflakes’ owing to their gross, little, distorted shape. It’s a habit I’ve tried to shake many times, but have failed at. I’ve speculated as to why I do this, and I don’t think it’s too much of a leap to assume that this is a symptom of an ongoing anxiety disorder.
‘No More Nails’ then, is a song about compulsive behaviours and how we use our bodies to map our brains’ complex internal processes. It’s also a song about my gross, little cornflake fingernails that I’ve bitten into oblivion, and will likely continue to do so for the rest of my days.”
