Record of the Day- “Ghost in the Machine” by Jingo

jingo

Starting off the month of August with this sensational new song from Jingo. Listen to how they start off slow with beautiful vocals and build into a wave of of sound that sweeps you away . They have a big sound that defies genres , creating a new sound that will draw you in and make you a fan.

Their Bio:
Already having garnered support from the likes of Amazing Radio, BBC London introducing, Clash Magazine, Artrocker, Hypetrak + and having previously ran their own successful London DIY open mic night “Cable Street Electric”, Jingo are anything but short of valuable influence and the evidence speaks for itself. Jingo’s first live show saw them supporting Blur’s Graham Coxon: an early yet fitting achievement for a band with success set firmly in its sights.

Jack Buckett and Joe Reeves met Katie (now) Buckett in Brooklyn, New York, before luring her back to the bright lights of East London. On returning to the big smoke, guitars in hand; Jingo, along with the new addition to the rhythm section, Chris Smith, have found themselves drawing influence from BRNS, Not Blood Paint, Interpol, Wolf Alice, Jeff Buckley, Prince and Lana Del Rey to create their vivacious, driving sounds. In 2013 the band won the “Made in Shoreditch” competition that entitled them to two days recording time at the infamous Strongroom Studios (Artic Monkeys, Depeche Mode, Radiohead, British Sea Power, Primal Scream) – the end result of which was “When You Want Me”: a single doused in originality that begs to be heard.

With their debut album “The Art of Loving” receiving recognition from acclaimed UK tastemakers, Jingo are more than read to raise the bar in 2015. Last years album release coincided with a US tour alongside friends Not Blood Paint and they have know done tours throughout North France, West Germany and Belgium along with a sold out single launch at London’s Old St Pancras church.

Jingo are taking major musical leaps. Streamlined songwriting, amplified rawness, artfully implemented melodies deservedly draw attention to the kind of band they have become: serious musicians brimming with promise. Egoless instrumentals and cascading percussion together with Katie’s distinctive and devoted vocals scream Warpaint with a Portishead shade.

Host for a dream
Ghost in the machine
Burn my body
But somethings never die

Eventually
You’ll be me
And everyone will be
everything, you’ll see

And our love will never die
Music doesn’t need the light
You’ll find me faster
If you close your eyes

Jingo, you’re an earthling
Fellow human firstly
Don’t forget when you’re safe
Behind the borderline

Time’s not what it seems
It’s relative to your heartbeat
Live to love and fight
For a freer life

And our love will never die
Music doesn’t need the light
You’ll find me faster
If you close your eyes

Our love will never die
Brightest light in the
Darkest sky; I’ll see you
Singing on the other side

Serve your body
But don’t forget your soul
I don’t mean magic,
I’m talking about your soul

See your life in a flash of light
Is it true love that your leaving behind?

Host for a dream
Ghost in the machine
Burn my body
But somethings never die
Now..

And our love will never die
Music doesn’t need the light
You’ll find me faster
If you close your eyes **

The second single from our upcoming EP
Officially released on 11th September.
