The True Jacqueline Announce National Tour in Support of Full-Length Release

Upon the heels of the June 22nd release of The True Jacqueline’s debut album Nice Bird, the spritely quartet from Massachusetts will hit the road to spread their jangly twee pop across the country.

The True Jacqueline have shared the stage with Bishop Allen, Sam Roberts Band, and Golden Bloom. Musically, The True Jacqueline offer indie-rock twists, breakdowns, and unusual arrangements that always remain melodic. Their songs can be both campy and heartfelt, but they write about what they know: real life, pop culture, and historical subjects. “We pull topics from many places,” says Stevralia. “We’re kind of nerds, so academic subjects like science, math, and history--as well as science fiction--tend to crop up often.” In 2009, Spin.com tagged the band as one of “7 Undiscovered Rock Bands Worth a Listen.” On Nice Bird, The True Jacqueline present power-pop basics, indie-rock twists, and unexpected arrangements all the while remaining contagiously melodic. Their songs are playful, literate, heartfelt and always fun. The band writes about what they know: real life, pop culture, and their keen fondness of historical subjects. "...crunchy guitar riffs and...tight girl/boy harmonies, a la Apples in Stereo." -- Pop Matters
