Bio

Sydney based outfit Jackie Brown Jr are a vibrant 5 piece known for their unique brand of music, dubbed affectionately as ‘Pulp Fiction Soul Rock’. Founded in 2014 with a mutual love for any thing to do with music making, Jackie Brown Jr combines upbeat, funk-infused elements of soul, rock and hip hop.

“‘Lake Loser’ begins as a gentle stroll for your morning coffee, evoking sunbeams through half-­closed curtains as Madeleine Mallis ​delivers her husky narrative of finding one’s feet.”
­- Ripe Music​ on 'Lake Loser'

“Jackie Brown Jr are something of a unicorn in the Australian scene, boasting extremely listenable music with a raw, original energy that is unmatched.”
­- Phantasmagoria Magazine​ on 'Jackie Brown Jr'

“It’s one of those songs that draws you in and blows your mind back out the other side. A single melody line and a couple of cymbals, and Jackie Brown Jr are singing the listener into their world for three minutes and forty­-eight seconds.”
­- Alt Media ​on 'Dud Street’

Refreshing, honest and damn straight up. An anthem for all us millennial losers.

Jackie Brown Jr are one of my favourite discoveries of 2016 so far. Your last two singles have been total jams, and you can kill it live too. Also, you called this song Sauvignon Bogan, and that's sick.

Brass section and sing along chorus take this song on a really interesting turn. A sing-a-long anthem for anyone who's ever lived dat poor student life.
