What do you get when you feed classical music training, experimental electronic pop, jazz, a few female poets, and Louis Theroux, through an analogue tape recorder? Answer: Jockstrap. The London duo – who bonded over Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs as students – will likely catch your ears by surprise with their idiosyncratic sound: Hollywood strings serenading eighties videogame bleeps, against a Latin rhythm, sharp bright beats, and refreshingly grounded lyrics. Just listen to track ‘Hayley’, and you’ll understand why we’re excited to see them bring their sound to the stage at Green Man this summer.
