Bendigo’s Jack and the Kids will play a hometown show next month in support of their debut EP Treasures. Heavily influenced by the likes of Pearl Jam and Silverchair, as well as more recent groups such as The Jezabels, Daughter and Volcano Choir, Jack and the Kids enjoyed their 2014 supporting bands including Snakadaktal and The Kite String Tangle. With Treasures you have an EP bursting with driving pianos and synths alongside guitars soaked in reverb. It was recorded and mixed by Alex Quayle, whose credits include Birds of Tokyo and Flume. Music Man, Bendigo – May 7. They will be joined by Brisbane’s Soviet X-Ray Record Club and locals The Ivory Knives and Tusk.
