The Truth: WHISTLEJACKET live in South London. They consist of George (vox / guitar), Danny (bass), Doug (guitar), Mickey (keyboards) and Sam (drums). The ‘Oh Brother’ EP is their brand new digital release which consists of four recklessly laidback songs and which coincides with live dates in Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Denmark and The Netherlands with a headline show at The Lexington in London Town to polish things off on September 19th – full dates below.

Whistlejacket previously whistled up a storm with their ‘What I Ate On Sunday’ EP, which was released back in February. If the likes of ‘Stay-N’ and ‘Holiday’ back then indicated a shimmeringly low-slung face-off between Teenage Fanclub and Sonic Youth then the ‘Oh Brother’ EP fittingly sees the quintet growing up, adding groovy undercurrents and cosmic wig-outs to their already pretty darned tempestuous indierock template.

Indeed, the title track and chosen radio tune ‘Oh Brother’ starts with a squall of sound and for the next five minutes revels in a crunchy, face-punchy sort of vibe with heavy guitars, floaty vocals, a motorik groove and a bit that fades out and then shimmies back in, all nonchalant, like. It makes sense, too – over the past year Whistlejacket have shared stages with the frenetic likes of Diiv, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Yuck and Bully and stealthily working the London underground scene with shows for Moth Club, Bad Vibrations, Club Fandango and John Kennedy’s X-posure as well as their own admirable DIY endeavours.

That’s not all – the ‘Oh Brother’ EP appears as a download on September 2nd and then at the end of their European tour the four tracks will be merged with the ‘What I Ate On Sunday’ EP to make a nine track album release due out on September 23rd. Happy days, in so many crazy ways…
