Unlike a lot of bands that call NYC/Brooklyn home, duo Jack and Eliza actually grew up here and have been friends since childhood. Now musical partners, Jack and Eliza make winsome pop, at this point just letting their guitars and voices convey their charms. If you liked the early, stripped-down days of Slow Club with a little Beach Boys/Everly Brothers influence, they're pretty appealing. Jack and Eliza will release their debut EP, No Wonders, via Yebo Music later this summer and you can stream "Hold the Line" (not a Toto cover) below.

We've also got the premiere of a brand new song, "Simple Strait," via a live video shot at Brooklyn's Rare Book Room studios. The song might be on their debut full-length which they're working on. Watch that below.

You can also see Jack and Eliza play live. Catch them Friday (7/11) at Rooftop Films at Metrotech Commons that also features a series of "twisted, romantic short films." That event is free and more details are here. They'll also open for Ski Lodge at Glasslands on August 23 with Rumors on the bill as well. Tickets are on sale.

Jack and Eliza have a few other East Coast dates scheduled and all are listed, along with the song stream and video premiere, below...

In an age when most "Brooklyn" bands are really from some Mid-Western town or another country altogether, the fact this act even exists is impressive enough. Especially when considering how quickly native New Yorkers are getting priced out of the Five Boroughs by entitled, transplant gentrifiers who look down on the folks who grew up here. I'll give these guys props for that alone.

4:27PM,

Friend, you are so correct. We like to speak of where most "Brooklyn" bands come from as the flyoverfuckingstates. The problem with so many of the aforementioned transplants you spoke of is that they have no sense of the history that made up NYC. It's disgusting.

These guys sound great but on another subject.

7:16 shut yr damn mouth and go read a book.

NYC's rock/art history IS FULL of transplants coming here.

Before Madonna was Madonna she was some girl in Michigan and Richard Hell is from Lexington Kentucky and Andy Warhol was born and went to college in Pittsburgh, Patty Smith was from Chicago, and so on and so on.

and before that motherfuckers came over from Europe or Minnesota (Bob Dylan), Massachusetts (Kerouac), Alton, IL (Miles Davis).

So leave your damned entitlement at the door.
