The Daily Krapht – Piqued Jacks – “Romantic Soldier”
Piqued Jacks come to you from Austin, TX, but their story starts in a town outside of Florence, Italy. They made the move to the States after successful performances at SXSW in 2013 & 2014. They bring an intense alternative rock sound wrapped in a blanket of funk rhythmns.
Their new album Climb Like Ivy Does was released in late January, and “Romantic Soldier” is the perfect introduction. Of the video, the band states that “The peace of a library hides the impetuosity of who fights for what he (or she) cares about. Violence doesn’t belong to the Romantic Soldier, strong love does. Heavy and calm melodies become one in a book, and give birth to Ivy, the upcoming album’s protagonist.” Keep an eye on Ivy. Things are just starting to heat up.
