”Jail Socks operates with a kinetic energy that’s not unlike the head rush you’d get after a late-night party.
The Charlotte trio may only have four songs to their name, but the stop-start mechanics and journal entries scattered across them underscores the vibrant duality of growing up. Some nights you’re filled with the inspiration smoked-out conversations can bring you; other times you’re too trapped by your own inner monologue to act on your new knowledge. The one-two punch of the band’s debut No Promises, chased with the elastic instrumentals threaded through their split with statemates Placeholder, has given this young group a straightforward and satisfying first run. Jail Socks is already gearing up to answer with their [sophomore EP]. Don’t worry: it promises to build on that same eternal boxing match between self and everybody else. See you soon.”
