The Mocking Jays are a four-piece pop-rock outfit from Nottingham with a deft balance of pop sensibility and rock’n’roll swagger since their formation in 2014. Their latest single release, “I Can’t Be (Without Your Love)”, is a string of electrifying recent releases from the fast-rising midlands outfit.
“I Can’t Be (Without Your Love)” was initially penned while filming the video for former single (and fan favorite) “Kiss My Neck” in the freezing climes of the Peak District in bitter mid-winter. Finding work for their idle and frost-bitten hands, the devil (and perhaps a little boredom) gave them one of their most irresistible riffs to date as they strived to keep warm between takes. Creating the wildfire spark that day, subsequent sessions back in Nottingham would soon see it burn brightly into the incandescent indie floor-filler we hear today.
