Singular Artists proudly presents
EYESORE & THE JINX
Whelan’s Upstairs • Sat 22nd July 2023
Singular Artists proudly present Eyesore & The Jinx for their highly anticipated headline show at Whelans Upstairs, 22nd July 2023.
Eyesore & The Jinx’s early singles and debut EP were released by Merseyside taste-makers Eggy Records. Eyesore’s sphere of influence began to expand out of their home region, starting with a BBC 6 Music Roundtable win for ‘On An Island’ produced by Jonathan Hartley from iconic psych-surgeons Clinc. Their debut EP, featuring singles ‘Leisure Time’ (KEXP Song of the Day) and ‘Nightlife’ was recorded with Daniel Fox (Gilla Band). The EP was funded by PRS Foundation’s PPL Momentum Accelerator fund for Liverpool musicians and was pressed to vinyl thanks to a successful crowdfunding campaign.
Eyesore songs often consist of ugly narratives centred around vile fictional characters. They take loose inspiration from what is happening around them, which has meant that in some cases, their made up stories have come true. Predicting the downfall of local public figures aside, their repertoire often centres around the worst of society (the eyesore), but with a playful side (the jinx). This continues through the new material they’re set to share in 2023, alongside a healthy dollop of self-reflection.
After releasing their EP in the midst of the pandemic, they spent the latter end of 2021 and much of 2022 writing new material and tightening it up on stage with some choice gigs supporting acts like Bodega, Working Mens Club and DITZ. While the band stepped away from releasing music to continue songwriting and demoing, previous single ‘Leisure Time’ carried on picking up support behind their backs appearing on an episode of Shameless US and then somehow managing to appear in a number of Spotify editorial playlists at the end of 2022.
2023 feels like a fresh start for the band, with a new single ‘An Ideas Man’ recently unleashed and lots of recorded music under their belts, there’s certainly an album announcement just round the corner.
