GET READY TO HIT THE DANCE-FLOOR WITH JOCKS' "DON'T STOP THE BEAT"

November 23, 2017

 

 

Indie pop band JOCKS had previously been known for their folk music but resurfaced at the beginning of 2016 with a new sound; adding a certain 80s vibe to their songs. The inspiration behind their songs comes from universal themes such as love, heartbreak and life.


Last month, the quartet released their luminous self-titled EP, “Jocks”. They recently shared, “Don’t Stop the Beat”, a track off the new project.


The song is a catchy, blissful indie pop track that explodes like “a musical sunrise”. The glassy synths, straightforward yet cool bassline and smooth vocals forge the 80s throwback sound of the song; reminiscent of bands like The 1975, HAIM or early Two Door Cinema Club.

Adam Hender’s “I Don’t Mind” is a sulky ode to selfless, unconditional love. He croons his desire to see an unrequited love happy, even apart from him. As hopeless as his cause is, I’m sure its a position almost all of us have been in, one time or another.
