Nylon Jail – No Way

Nylon Jail – No Way


Nylon Jail are an ‘electro country’ band formed in Olomouc in the Czech Republic last year. Aiming to “combine the combinable and destroy stereotypical perceptions” whilst harnessing “the distinctiveness and atmosphere of the Wild West”, the six piece use an array of instruments including guitar, piano, bass, drums, violin and mandolin to create melodic music with a percussive undertone.

I like No Way in particular as it best emphasises the marriage of acoustic and electronic that makes this band so distinctive. Jiřin Jirák is impressive on vocals, adding power and personality to the track but the floating strings, emphatic beat and ghostly organ are also crucial to creating a melody and sound that draws the listener in from the very beginning.

You can find out more about Nylon Jail on their Facebook page and hear their music on Soundcloud. Definitely a band to keep an ear out for in the future.
