The Mocking Jays reveal video for "Edge of your Knife" [IAI PREMIERE]

Hailing from Nottingham, The Mocking Jays are a five-piece pop-rock band that has effortlessly created a deft balance of pop sensibility and rock and roll swagger that, since forming in 2014, has allowed them to rapidly make a name for themselves, both within their native East Midlands and across the UK.

The Mocking Jays present a sexy, funky, dirty pop sound that flares with tons of attitude.

Though crucial early support from the likes of 6Music and BBC Introducing, as well as festival appearances at the likes of Y-Not, have done nothing to hamper the band’s reputation, it’s largely down to the inherent appeal of their own brand of idiosyncratic indie-pop.

Falling somewhere in between the ballsy freneticism of bands like Kasabian and the pop pomp of Clean Bandit, it’s a dichotomy both accessible and irresistible; which describes The Mocking Jays’ latest single ‘Edge of Your Knife’ perfectly.

Four minutes of bold bass licks, slick percussion and uncompromising guitars, not to mention the buckets of charm it harbours, ‘Edge of Your Knife’ feels like the perfect progression on from last year’s ‘Take You Home’ and sees the five-piece build on those foundations in order to create a track that not only exhibits just where The Mocking Jays are as a band today, but where they’ve come from as well.

With a summer of festivals, including a return visit to Y-Not, stretched out in front of them and now armed with what’s undoubtedly their strongest single release to date, it goes without saying that The Mocking Jays are about to have a very fun summer indeed. Why not get involved?
