Hailing from New Jersey, The Static Jacks are a poppy garage punk band that have been together since 2007. After the release of their first album, the group decided they needed to take a different approach to production and began recording in a converted storage unit in Jersey City. The resulting sophomore album is exactly what the band hoped to achieve — a sound that is, according to the band, “spontaneous but polished.” The guys stopped by the studio to chat with Maia about Spray Tan and play a few songs.
Featured song: “Young Guns”
Spray Tan is now available from Fearless Records.
