Essex lads Rubber Jaw are most definitely in my top three up and coming bands on the scene at present. Signed to Creation23 earlier last year, Alan McGee’s new 7” label, the three-piece band from Essex, fronted by Michael Hemming’s, Rubber Jaw deliver beautifully constructed edgy vocals and provide a new lease of life into Art Rock/Indie in their melodic new piece of work – ‘Freaking Out’.
It was the pivotal decision of childhood friends Michael Henning’s and Ross Connel, along with their drummer Archie Mann to form the band, that would eventually catch the eyes and ears of music industry executive, Alan McGee, which ultimately saw this thrilling band sign to his new label Creation23.
