Getting To Know Piqued Jacks

Italian outfit Piqued Jacks utilize elements of dynamic garage-rock.

Recently, the band have welcomed two new tracks, “Every Day Special” and ‘Golden Mine’ – a flavour of the bands next full-length ‘“Synchronizer” due in 2021 with INRI.

Inspired by a true story experienced while on tour, their latest offering ‘Golden Mine’ reflects the end of one’s life on earth; insignificant compared to the pages of history, but full of responsibility toward that legacy, because only by leaving a mark of our own will we have lived fully. 

The Band tell GigSoup: “Many of us fear death, but maybe we should only fear it as far as we wouldn’t be able to leave a mark on this world, nor to have someone close to us that holds our hand in our last moments.”

GIGsoup chat to Piqued Jacks.

Hey Piqued Jacks, thanks for chatting to us here at GigSoup. How are you doing?

Hey Gigsoup, thanks to you for having us! We’re doing pretty good, hope it’s the same for y’all.

Glad to hear it! We’re all good, looking forward to the holidays! So who are your influences and how have they inspired Piqued Jacks Indie-Rock sound?

What we can tell for sure is that we don’t have any influence by Italian artists. That said, we love to surround ourselves with a loooooooooooooooot of foreign artists that we like, as well as we love to keep them out from our sound.

What was the first thing that got you interested in music?

MUSIC.

Ha that’s a good answer! Describe to our audience your music-making process.

Shall we mime it? Jokes apart, our process is a very pure one, because it comes from our true necessity of expressing ourselves through music. It’s like someone who feels the need of travelling and buys any ticket, not caring about where it’s for but only for the joy of the journey, willing to go wherever the ticket says. Music, in a sense, is like travelling without moving (pun unintended, Jamiroquai).

When creating a new track, what do you prefer writing the most… the lyrics or the melody?

Absolutely both! Can’t choose, it’s like asking us if we’d like to eat a pizza with no mozzarella and enjoy the cheese later. It’s not possible, we want both at the same time.

What is one track that you wish you wrote?

E-King (vocals) says: “Only The Young” by Brandon Flowers; not well-known yet beautiful.

HolyHargot (drums) says: “Stairway To Heaven” by Led Zeppelin; classic. Majic-o (guitar) goes for “Time” by Pink Floyd; both the lyrics and the melody.

littleladle (bass) Says: “Disintegration” by The Cure; killer bassline.

Finally, what’s next on the agenda for Piqued Jacks?

We have a lot of things for YOUR agenda, guys! Lots of presents will arrive before and after Christmas, but first, you need to behave and follow us on our socials: Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Spotify. You’ll hear from us soon!
