Eyesore & The Jinx “No More Nails”

On November 17th, Liverpool band Eyesore & The Jinx will release their album, Jitterbug. The latest single from the album is “No More Nails.” Mixing angular guitars with distorted talky vocals, the track has a post-punk playfulness similar to bands like Art Brut or The Rapture. Lyrically, vocalist/bassist Josh Miller admits “for as long as I can remember I’ve bitten my finger nails compulsively, often til they bleed. Lately they have resembled what a close family member called ‘cornflakes’ owing to their gross, little, distorted shape. It’s a habit I’ve tried to shake many times, but have failed at. I’ve speculated as to why I do this, and I don’t think it’s too much of a leap to assume that this is a symptom of an ongoing anxiety disorder.” Gross indeed.
