If Soul, Pop, and R&B had a threesome, their baby would sound like Jules and The Jinks.

 

Jules and The Jinks is the brain child of first-generation native New Yorkers Julissa Lopez and Erik Rosenberg. Despite their different backgrounds (Dominican from The Bronx and Jewish from The Upper West Side) the two were united by their love of Otis Redding, Etta James, and Led Zeppelin.  Though they flirt with various genres from Blues, to Funk, to Afro-Pop and Jazz, the music of Jules and The Jinks is best described as Soul.  Jules and Erik use the characters, story lines, and melodies of their songs to evoke familiar yet powerful emotions.  Jules and The Jinks released their self-titled debut EP on November 7th.  AFROPUNK has described the record as "effortlessly chill" and declared the EP's lead single, No Compromise, "a song that deserves to be blaring from car speakers while driving through borough blocks."
