Inky Jack, a four-man madhouse of influences ranging from electro-pop, reggae and punk, is releasing their debut album in the coming months, after releasing their single "Red For Days", through Famous Records/Universal on October 26th, 2012.
The founding members found themselves working deep in the urban/pop machine with the likes of Cash Money, and Diplomats before coming to consciousness and delving back into their indie roots with newly-minted pop sensibilities. They have coined the term "Frag" to describe the somewhat schizophrenic nature of their records as well as their live shows, which consist of a system of drum machines and synthesizers in addition to the classic components of rock band. The vocalist belts and croons in a creamy rasp worthy of the nicotine-addicted, illegitimate Caribbean son of Luther Vandross and Macy Gray (which, sadly, he isn’t).
Inky Jack is resonating with people through music that is fun loving, energetic, varied and honest, as indicated by their growing fan base. They have been compared to TV on the Radio, Passion Pit and Gnarls Barkley, among others.
