(SXSW 2015 flavoured!) Video of the Moment #1677: Carl Barat and the Jackals

By on Friday, 14th November 2014 at 6:00 pm

Carl Barat is stepping out with his new band, the Jackals, and their debut album ‘Let It Reign’ is scheduled to be released on the 16th of February 2015. While their sound is more Dirty Pretty Things than the Libertines, it’s definitely a more mature sound (read: less sea shanty and more serious and dark).

Take, for example, the new video for the LP’s lead single ‘Glory Days’, which sees their leader Barat as a soldier up against a firing squad. This is neither a happy video or one that is easy to watch, but given that this week we observed Veterans’ Day (America) and Armistice Day (Britain), stay the course until the end to see who they’ve dedicated this video to. Pretty powerful stuff.

And no, you do not need to adjust your monitor or phone screen, TGTF’s SXSW 2015 coverage will be ramping up very shortly. This is the first post of the lot, as Carl Barat and the Jackals were given a shout to the big dance in March in Austin on the first SXSW 2015 band announcement list released in mid-October. Stay tuned for more pre-festival coverage right here on TGTF.

Carl Barat will be releasing a new EP next week (the 2nd of May) called ‘Death Fires Burn at Night’. We’ve been given the go-ahead to offer this song as a free download. Called ‘This is the Song’, it’s a far cry from his Libertines/Dirty Pretty Things work, but in a good way. Tender and heartfelt, listen and download it below.
