Hailing from New Jersey, The Static Jacks are a poppy garage punk band that have been together since 2007. After the release of their first album, the group decided they needed to take a different approach to production and began recording in a converted storage unit in Jersey City. The resulting sophomore album is exactly what the band hoped to achieve -- a sound that is, according to the band, “spontaneous but polished.” The guys stopped by the studio to chat with Maia about Spray Tan and play a few songs. /// Featured song: “Young Guns” /// Spray Tan is now available from Fearless Records. /// Complete radio broadcast and playlist: http://b-t-r.co/QvvINx /// Official website: http://www.thestaticjacks.com /// Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/thestaticjacks /// Twitter: @thestaticjacks
