Nervous ticks: Never Home and Eyesore & The Jinx

Never Home and Eyesore & The Jinx

Eyesore & The Jinx – Do What You Love

Similar artists: Treeboy & Arc, Egyptian Blue, Parquet Courts, Courting, The Cool Greenhouse

Genre: Post-Punk, Indie Rock

Devoted rock musicians are a bit like people who tattoo dirty words on their foreheads for fear of ever getting a job in a bank. It certainly makes them stand out. And, whether the threat was ever real or not, this should certainly help them avoid the dreaded work inside of a financial institution. 

So when it comes to hearing about chasing after your dreams, trust rock musicians. They know what they’re saying. They’ve sacrificed, have stayed up at night thinking about their decisions, and they’ve poured them into following their imagination on the strange, murky roads that it’s taken them. 

Eyesore & The Jinx’s “Do What You Love” is a cheeky little spoken-punk tune about the cost of living and the pressure of getting anything of significance out of living. It’s memorable, quotable and heartbreaking. It’s the tune to send your office Whatsapp group to get them crying on a Monday night commute back from work. 


Never Home – Monkeywrench

Similar artists: The Strokes, Green Day

Genre: Pop Punk, Alternative Rock

Those looking to criticize the biggest bands in the world will always find an easy way to do it. Whether it’s Creed or Nickleback, even if it’s The Beatles or Yes, there’s always something silly that you can pin to when it comes to rock bands. After all, we’re talking about grown men plugging guitars into giant amplifiers and looking to entertain a crowd. 

But to call that silly is to miss out on the whole point of rock n’ roll. It’s not powerful and popular in spite of it being simplistic, but because of it. It doesn’t fight against the instincts of the crowds but gives them something to fawn the flames. 

Never Home’s “Monkeywrenchwill only reach you provided that within you lies the same kind of nervous energy that informs this song, the same kind of electricity that drives the music. 

If anything, Never Home proves that there’s no reason for us to sit around waiting for the next great trend to happen to guitar music. Everything’s already available, but it takes a clear vision to make it special time and time again.
