Eyesore & The Jinx release their first single from their forthcoming debut album, Jitterbug.

Recorded at Yellowbird Studio (Wirral) during the summer of 2022, ‘No More Nails’ decidedly sets the scene for the band’s first album. The track is an edgy and excitable song about the compulsive behaviors we deal with on a day-to-day basis.

Josh Miller (vocals, bass) of the fidgety-post-punk trio introduces the single:

“When setting out to write our debut album, I didn’t have a theme in mind. Instead, I chose to write about whichever subject felt most pertinent at the time. Over the course of several months though, it became clear that there was a consistent thread amongst the songs regarding control or lack thereof, particularly in relation to the human body.

For as long as I can remember I’ve bitten my fingernails compulsively, often til they bleed. Lately, they have resembled what a close family member called ‘cornflakes’ owing to their gross, little, distorted shape. It’s a habit I’ve tried to shake many times, but have failed at. I’ve speculated as to why I do this, and I don’t think it’s too much of a leap to assume that this is a symptom of an ongoing anxiety disorder.

‘No More Nails’ then, is a song about compulsive behaviours and how we use our bodies to map our brains’ complex internal processes. It’s also a song about my gross, little cornflake fingernails that I’ve bitten into oblivion, and will likely continue to do so for the rest of my days.”

‘No More Nails’ is out now. Jitterbug is out September 17, 2023.
