The Jarheads are a progressive pop punk trio from north Mississippi who formed their craft around one another as teens and, after an EP and two full-length albums, continue to strike steadfast chords in the hearts of listeners.
While three-piece bands are traditionally limited in their orchestration, these boys fill in the gaps with complex hooks and thoughtful melodies, all while serving up some fast and occasionally dissonant rock’n’roll. Their southern roots provide undertones of melancholy, entwined with very real lyrical themes.
The Jarheads are known for give-it-all, blood and sweat performances, whether a set is forty-five minutes or two hours. Soul is important to these fellows. So is earnestness. [+]
