bio

Jarpsy are a four-piece indie alt-rock band from the North-East of England, whose wild gigs and eclectic songwriting have led them to be rightfully recognised among the hottest up-and-comers of the UK underground scene. In addition to their solid base of arms-in-the-air indie rock and roll, Jarpsy's recent releases, as well as their vast cache of unreleased material, has caused the band to warmly embrace the label of 'alternative', and the creative freedom that comes with it. From psychedelia to electronica, hard rock to synth-pop Jarpsy's wide-ranging sound is matched only by the extensiveness of their influences.

This limitless potential has not gone unnoticed by the music industry - Jarpsy have forged close links and worked with a wide array of big names who plucked the four-piece from obscurity after noticing their obvious skill and hard-driven DIY work ethic. Sticky Fingers, The Fratellis, The Delta Riggs and Will and the People are among the acts that can be found in Jarpsy's ever-thickening address book of contacts, sponsors and supporters.

Since the genesis of the band with 2018's six-track EP 'The Come-Up', Jarpsy have progressed and developed in every imaginable way. The youth and unrefined nature of their earlier works have been replaced with a maturity and understanding of performance far beyond their years. The level of polish applied to everything, even those same EP tracks, has since become impeccable, and their slicker songwriting style came to a head with debut single, fan-favourite 'Hammerhead', super-hot sophomore single 'For the Record', and direction-changing trailblazer 'Desolate Towns'. Their back-catalogue is set to be further bolstered throughout 2022, with the announcement of eight further tracks recorded in the 'Desolate Towns' sessions, giving their quickly-growing cult following a new set of songs to scream at the top of their lungs.

Despite their recording efforts, Jarpsy pride themselves on being a band to be experienced live. Every song written and show played remind audiences of Jarpsy's effortless punch, energy and swagger, more than earning their reputation as purveyors of the loudest, bounciest and sweatiest gigs to come from the North-East in a generation. The true power of Jarpsy can only be found in the midst of a crowd of people, singing your heart out with a drink in your hand - a fact to which audiences the length and breadth of the UK can attest, everywhere from Newcastle's City Hall to Soho's Spice of Life.

The band did their rounds on the lesser-known festival circuit, but exploded into the major festival scene with a noteworthy set on the Discovery Stage at Hardwick Live in 2019. Despite being complete newcomers to the festival and lacking the big-name pull of other acts and the stage that day (Bloxx, Sports Team) the boys managed to go from a few stragglers from the previous set, to a crowd of over 600 people who they drew in with only their powerful sound.

"The Mackems hook your ears from the opening strutting guitars, which become the foundation looping throughout the track. Once the riff is drilled into you, the track builds up with rhythmic drums and thick vocals, climaxing with a guitar solo you could mosh to."

"‘Desolate Towns‘ boasts a chorus worthy of being screamed by endless gig and festival-goers, and bolsters the Mackem noise-makers‘ reputation as one of the hottest up-and-comers on the tip of every industry tongue."
