London four-piece The Jacques have shared their explosive new single, ‘Alka-Seltzer’. The release comes ahead of their headline shows at London’s The Water Rats and The Crofter’s Rights in Bristol later this month, and a support slot on the sold-out opening night of Feeder’s UK tour in Portsmouth on 1st November.
“We wrote 'Alka-Seltzer' just before Will joined the band a few years ago, although we had already met a few times... I liked him and I knew he could play so I already had my eye on him,” explains lead singer Finn. “I came up with the riff with him in mind in the hope that he might be impressed and want to join the band, which feels very funny to admit now. I’m sure he would find that funny too.”
