INTRODUCING: INKY JACK
If Ratatat, TV on the Radio and Fat Freddy got together to jam on the moon... Meet Inky Jack - the future companion for alternative and experimental music fans. From Brooklyn to outer-space and back, this two man madhouse take cues from rock, reggae, electronica and punk, creating a sound that's not only utterly intoxicating, but utterly unique.
After releasing their self-titled EP last year, Dipesh Sinha and Kwame Butler have been garnering a reputation based on their total disregard for genres and their absolute dedication to authenticity. Their eclectic productions have bred the term darkwave dub rock and their attitude towards life and culture – and the machine – is ever present within their lyrics and productions.
Freedom, their new single, continues to break ground, push boundaries and blur genres. It’s taken from their forthcoming EP, Infrared, due out later this year.
Originality is hard to come by, but Inky Jack has it in their DNA. – Repeat Button
Flawless from the first track to the last – ChillSoundsGoodMusic EP review
Chiptune blips, dub bass, Flaming Lips ambience, Passion Pit synths, and an ear for wide open hooks elevate the EP…its like they took a 1970’s Kingston sound system, dissembled it, and used the pieces to build a spaceship – Afropunk EP Review
